Unborn Child Kicks Mother so Hard It Breaks: Doctors

A pregnant woman's belly Pregnant woman nearly dies after unborn baby kicked so hard the womb broke

A Chinese mother and newborn daughter are recovering after her unborn baby nearly kicked through the wall of her womb, prompting emergency surgery.

"She was brought to hospital on 2nd October after she suffered severe abdominal pain for about five hours", Peking University Shenzhen Hospital, where Ms Zhang is being treated, says in official statement.

Initial checks were run for what Zhang was still describing as stomach pains, and it wasn't until specialists conducted an ultrasound on the woman's womb that they realised what had happened.

The baby and her mother are said to be recuperating and in stable condition following the life-saving operation.

But she told medics that she had surgery to remove tumours in the uterus shortly before falling pregnant - so doctors suspected she had a uterine rupture.

Doctors considered Ms Zhang's condition critical and immediately arranged an operation for her.

The baby was born by emergency caesarean section 10 minutes after the doctors made the discovery.

Dr Zhong added that that Ms Zhang's scar was located at the bottom of her uterus and her baby had kicked on it by accident, which caused the rupture. Only 26 cases are said to have been reported worldwide.

The woman, who only gave the surname Zhang, gave birth to her child at 35 weeks via a C-section.

But after a scan, doctors saw the baby's leg in a unusual location.
