Lifesaving Surgery After Unborn Baby 'Kicks Through' Her Mum's Womb

Lifesaving Surgery After Unborn Baby 'Kicks Through' Her Mum's Womb

Ms Zhang was immediately taken under the knife and her baby was born through C-section about 10 minutes later.

While it sounds may sound like the plot line from a Hollywood sci-fi movie, this pregnancy horror story is all too real.

The baby girl was born at 35 weeks through a caesarean section, and both she and her mother are in stable condition, according to the Peking University Shenzhen Hospital in southern China.

Throughout the day, Zhang began to run a fever and break out in a cold sweat and with the pains steadily increasing the woman rushed to the emergency department at Peking University Shenzhen Hospital.

The hospital said that the woman initially believed she had a stomach ache.

A heavily pregnant Chinese mother is lucky to be alive after her unborn toddler kicked her womb so hard the uterus wall was ruptured, leaving the baby's leg dangling outside the womb.

Ms Zhang and her family thought that the mother-to-be had a stomach-ache, the MailOnline reported.

Doctors explain that an event like this is very rare, and is more likely if there is already existing scar tissue in the area.

The child kicked a wound inside the woman's uterus, which was left over from a prior operation.

A doctor involved in the operation said that women who get fibroid-removal operations, which is what Ms. Zhang had, should wait for one to two years before they decide to have a baby.
