Baby Girl Born Twice

Giving birth to a child is a poignant moment in a mom's life — one Texas woman experienced it twice with her daughter. One-month-old Macie Hope, had been medically taken from her mother's womb during the sixth month of pregnancy so doctors could remove a tumor the size of a grapefruit that would have killed her. Then, she made her official debut ten weeks later on May 3rd. According to an NBC report, the surgery the fetus underwent was risky. It said:

The happy couple talked exclusively to TODAY’s Ann Curry on Friday from the hospital, where they were joined by Dr. Darrell Cass, the fetal surgeon who led the team that performed a surgery that has been successfully completed fewer than 20 times around the world. In Macie’s case, he said, “We were very, very fortunate. It really turned out perfectly.”

The baby's middle name was chosen when her parents learned that she had less than a ten percent chance of surviving, but now the miracle baby is expected to be released from the hospital this weekend.
