 Doctors Save Stillborn Baby Who Had No Blood in His Body

Doctors at the Maidstone General Hospital in Britain successfully managed to save the life of a stillborn baby who had no blood in his body due to a rare condition.

A rare condition during pregnancy meant that Katy, 36, had an additional blood vessel in her womb which burst 37 weeks into her pregnancy, draining all the blood out. Oliver Morgan was stillborn and was without any blood or heartbeat but doctors at the hospital managed to resuscitate him before giving a blood transfusion via his umbilical cord.

Katy revealed that it took her a long time to recover from the traumatic birth and said that the work done by the doctors was nothing short of a miracle. "It's hard to believe, looking back at what he's been through, but Ollie's now a bright, happy boy with his whole life ahead of him. He's a walking tribute to the doctors who worked miracles - and he's a right little battle", she said.
