Baby Born After Abdominal Pregnancy
When doctors at the Government Kasturba Gandhi Hospital wheeled in 30-year-old Meena for a caesarean, they thought it would be just another 15-minute procedure. But the team walked out of the operation theatre only three hours later, to announce the birth of a 2.25 kg baby boy.
Though fatigued, they were smiling when they announced that the mother was doing well. This baby, the doctors said, is the country’s second one born out of secondary abdominal pregnancy. Which means it did not develop in the uterus, but at the sigmoid colon, located at end of the large intestine, adjacent to the womb.
