Baby Born Twice after a Miracle Surgery

Lynlee, a baby girl from Texas has been born twice after being taken out of her mother’s womb for a 20 minutes surgery.

Margaret Hawkins Boemer discovered that her daughter affected with a tumour on her spine at 16 weeks of pregnancy. It is known as a sacrococcygeal teratoma, was diverting blood from the foetus – raising the risk of fatal heart failure. At 23 weeks, the tumour was shutting her heart down and causing her to go into cardiac failure, so it was a choice of allowing the tumour to take over her body or giving her a chance at life.

The doctors were able to remove 90 percent of the tumor and safely return Lynlee back inside her mother after the 5 hours surgery. Lynlee’s heart virtually stopped during the procedure but a heart specialist kept her alive while most of the tumour was removed.

Mrs Boemer spent the next 12 weeks on bedrest, and Lynlee entered the world for the second time on 6 June. She was born via Caesarean at almost full term, weighing 5Ib and 5oz, and named after both of her grandmothers. Doctor Darrell Cass of Texas Children’s Fetal Centre was one of the team who carried out the surgery.
