Unborn Baby Kicks Hole In Mother’s Womb — Almost Kills Them Both

A Baby’s Kick Almost Takes Out Her And The Mother

An unborn baby kicks through a mother womb and almost kills them both.

Zhang was 35 weeks pregnant when she was rushed to the Peking University Shenzhen Hospital with severe stomach pains.

Doctors found that along with the severe stomach pains, Zhang was having issues with her blood pressure, pulse, and breathing.

Doctors initially thought her womb had been ruptured. But an ultrasound showed the baby had kicked through the uterus wall to the mother’s abdominal cavity. The doctors also noticed the baby’s thighs were stuck between the womb.

They immediately delivered the baby through an emergency c-section to stop the mother from bleeding out and prevent the baby from getting an infection.

The Essential Baby reported that it took surgeons only 10 minutes to safely deliver the baby.

Surgeons Zhang Lei, Zhang Yanping and Zhong Shilin said the mother had a 7-centimeter tear in her womb wall from the baby’s kick.

It was later learned from the mother’s medical history; she had previously had fibroids removed from her womb. This procedure resulted in a womb scare which left a weak spot on her uterus wall.

After the major health scare, both the mother and baby girl are doing well.
