Pregnant For 46 Years, Woman Gives Birth To Stone Baby
"A stone baby, is a rare phenomenon which occurs most commonly when a fetus dies during an abdominal pregnancy, is too large to be reabsorbed by the body, and calcifies on the outside, shielding the mother's body from the dead tissue of the baby and preventing infection." Wikipedia
"A stone baby may occur from 14 weeks gestation to full term. It is not unusual for a stone baby to remain undiagnosed for decades, and it is often not until a patient is examined for other conditions or a proper examination is conducted that includes an X-ray, that a stone baby is found." Wikipedia
So now you have an idea what a stone baby is, so now picture a woman carrying that in her body for 46 years, I believe you must have heard stories of women carrying a pregnancy for years or perhaps you have seen one by yourself, in any case, on my own side of the globe, people generally believes such a person is under an evil spell, well i wont dispel and i wont agree what's important is to clear your doubt if you have one about the possibility of carrying for that long.
The year was 1955 and the place was Grand Casablanca Morroco, 26 years old Zahra was about to have her first baby and she was subsequently rushed to the hospital but after 48 hours of agonizing labor pain, cant imagine how it must have felt like to experience labor pain for two days, anyway after two days of delayed labor, the doctors declared, she was going to have deliver her child by caesarian section, in that very hospital that day Zahra saw another woman die during child birth and for the fear that she might die like wise, she fled from the hospital and went back home to deliver the baby at home, for the next couple of days Zahra continue to feel the labour pains but in the following the days, the pain ceased and the baby stopped moving, found it hard to understand how a woman would wait at home with a her baby in her womb that refused to come out, it turns out that in Moroccan culture it is believed that a still born can sleep in the mothers womb to protect her honor, so with this in mind zahra concluded that the baby must have slept in her womb, and she forgot about the pregnancy and proceeded to adopt three children as she could no longer conceive after that time.
46 years after Zahra now 70 plus and a grand mother soon started feeling the pains all over again like it never stopped at all, she was taken to the hospital by her children and after series of x rays and MRI scans it turns out that it was the baby from 46 years back, the doctors decided to operate on her and what they found inside her turns out to be A stone baby, its pretty incredible that she was able to carry that around for that long, anyway if you didn't know such before now you know, share the knowledge.
