Medical News Today is reporting:
Nicolette Soto, 27, whose fetus developed outside her uterus surrounded by a thin wall of membrane and muscle, gave birth in Arizona after 32 weeks of pregnancy to a 2 pound 14 ounce baby at the Maternal Fetal Medicine Center at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center. Doctors wonder whether this has ever happened before.
The baby developed just next to the mother’s uterus, but outside it. The placenta had not attached properly and eventually attached to the outside of the uterine wall. Doctors said that removing it was much easier than they had expected. In case of complications, a team of experts in urology, trauma and radiology, as well as a vascular surgeon were on standby – fortunately, their services were not required.
Ms. Soto was warned by doctors that having a baby develop outside the uterus was life-threatening for both her and her baby. However, according to boyfriend, Victor Perfecto, she made it clear that she wanted to see the pregnancy through to the end.
Azelan Cruz cruz was born last Monday.
The embryo had attached itself to where the fallopian tube meets the uterus, the medical team explained – a cornual pregnancy. In most cases the tube ruptures and the pregnancy ends around the 12-14th week.
