PRAGUE (AP) — A Czech clinic says a baby girl has been born to a brain-dead woman kept on life support for nearly three months to allow her pregnancy to go ahead.
The University Hospital in the second-largest Czech city of Brno said Tuesday the 2.1-kilogram (4.6-pound) baby was born by cesarean section when the mother was 34 weeks pregnant.
The hospital statement did not provide details on the baby's health, but Czech public television said the girl — born earlier this month — is now with her father.
The 27-year-old mother was declared brain-dead in early June after suffering a brain hemorrhage a few weeks into her pregnancy.
At the time, the hospital said doctors would keep the mother alive on mechanical support until the baby was developed enough to be delivered.
In a state of brain death for 117 days, she gives birth to a little girl
In a state of brain death for 117 days, a future mother 27 years old gave birth to his granddaughter. Following a major brain hemorrhage, the young Czech woman fell into a coma and was kept alive for several months to save the baby and allow him to be born.
In 2016, life has rocked for Eva Votavova . This young Czech was diagnosed with an arteriovenous malformation in the brain. It is a "vascular malformation where the arteries and veins of brain perform a short circuit that makes blood pressure is abnormally high," clarifies the French Society of Neurosurgery.
Alas, for Eva, this pathology has been fatal. On April 21, 2019 , she is found unconscious at home while she was pregnant 16 weeks. "She stopped breathing in the evening and was declared in brain dead state ," says Roman Gal, chief anesthesiologist at the Bro hospital in the Czech Republic, at a press conference that was held took place on September 2nd.
The doctors then decided to maintain Eva in Life , in order to give Fetus a chance to become viable and to come into the world.Her heart, lungs and kidneys continued to work
To save the future child, the doctors made sure that Eva's organs , including her heart, lungs and kidneys, continue to function. They are essential to growth of the unborn baby. The latter was particularly watched, reports AFP.
In principle, the brain development of the fetus is thanks to interactions and movements of the mother. A therapist was responsible for moving Eva's legs during her coma to simulate walking. For more contact with the future baby, the nurses spoke regularly with him, while his grandmother came to read stories to him.
According to a study by the University of Montreal, a moderate physical activity is essential during pregnancy. This allows the future child to develop his cognitive abilities , but also to regulate his heart rate.The child was born by caesarean section
The delivery took place during the month of August. The little girl, named Eliska was born by Cesarean during the 34th week of pregnancy. The child measured 42 cm for 2.13 kilos . "This is the weight and maturity of the fetus among the highest high obtained for a baby born to a mother in a state of brain death according to global data," says the anesthetist.
