Moscow, March 9 (IANS/RIA Novosti) A Polish woman gave birth to twins after a 75-day ordeal in which she had to lie upside down to save her babies’ lives.
According to Polish Radio External Service, Joanna Krzysztonek from Wroclaw, who was expecting triplets, initially went into labour after the fifth month of pregnancy.
Doctors were unable to save the first child. They then stopped the birth in a bid to ensure that the remaining two survived.
However, the expecting mother was told that she might have a chance of saving the two unborn babies only by lying still and virtually upside down with her legs up.
She decided to go through with the plan, and after 75 days, her twins Iga and Ignacy were born.
“Joanna took a risk, and following great dedication gave birth to two wonderful children,” said professor Mariusz Zimmer, who oversaw the birth in Wroclaw.
“It was only three months,” the happy mother quipped.
