As a woman, it is very important to understand your birth option because twins are more likely to be born early, often before 38 weeks, but if they were born beyond 37 weeks, there is every tendency that one or both of the twin babies would spend more time in special care.
According to a news report, a baby born in Hong Kong was pregnant with her own siblings at the time of her birth, a new report of the infant’s case. The baby’s condition, known as fetus-in-fetu, is incredibly rare and occurs in only about 1 in every 500,000 births. It’s not clear exactly why and how it happened
At the birth of the baby, she was suspected to have a tumor, when referred to Dr. Yu Kai-man, a gynecologist and an obstetrician, and at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Hong Kong.
Meanwhile, the case report has it that the mother’s prenatal ultrasound had revealed an unusual mass within the infant, but it was unclear to the doctors exactly what the mass was and during surgery, which was done when the girl was about 3 weeks old, the surgeons discovered two fetuses between her liver and her kidney.
Fetus-in-fetu was first documented in a British medical journal in 1808. It has since been recorded in births in Indonesia, India, and Singapore.
It is thought that the condition affects approximately one in half a million live births across the globe.
Doctors had been concerned that if they did not remove the fetus from the baby their development couldn’t proceed normally and would have continued to grow and damaged the infant’s internal organs.
