Woman Has Baby After Ectopic Pregnancy

Ectopic Pregnancy Miracle

A very small percentage of women will suffer from an ectopic pregnancy. An ectopic pregnancy is defined as: development of a fertilized egg elsewhere than in the uterus (as in a fallopian tube or the peritoneal cavity)

According to WebMD,

There is no way to save an ectopic pregnancy. It cannot turn into a normal pregnancy. If the egg keeps growing in the fallopian tube, it can damage or burst the tube and cause heavy bleeding that could be deadly. If you have an ectopic pregnancy, you will need quick treatment to end it before it causes dangerous problems.

In a very rare case, doctors missed the opportunity to diagnose Meera Thangarajah with such a pregnancy. After enduring an ovarian pregnancy, the happy family welcomed a daughter into their family. The couple named their baby girl Durga, which means Goddess.

faery--my sympathies. I don;t get this at all. How could the ultrasound not reveal this? Where was the placenta located? How did the umbilical cord connect into the ovary? A miracle baby. The best to mom, baby and family.

There was another case of an etopic pregnancy going to full term and the woman giving birth to a healthy baby, several years ago. I remember being shocked then just as I am now, it is indeed very rare. faerymagick, I'm sorry you had to go through an etopic pregnancy.

Durga doesn't actually mean "Goddess." Durga is a goddess in the Hindu religious tradition.
