When a 33-year-old woman got pregnant for the sixth time, she had no idea her previous five C-sections had caused her uterine wall to weaken.
As a result, the expecting mother developed a tear along her uterus — only there were no symptoms to alert her to the strange happenings inside her body. Doctors explained the potential risks of the herniated sac, like placenta accreta, hysterectomy, and preterm birth.
Despite the dangers, the couple decided to move forward with the pregnancy.
At her 22-week ultrasound appointment, the doctor was absolutely “astonished” to see the image of the unborn baby’s feet and legs popping right through the amniotic sac!
It’s called “rupture pregnancy,” and only 26 cases have ever been reported.
The fascinating image, which looks like the baby’s kicking out of Mom’s uterus, quickly went viral.
Dr. Pierre-Emmanuel Bouet, lead author of the report, said he had never before seen a pregnancy like this one.
After 30 weeks, the mother gave birth to a healthy boy via C-section. He is now a happy, healthy 6-month-old. After the delivery, doctors repaired her uterine rupture.
