Doctors Save Unborn Baby After 20-Week Blood Transfusion
(The Christian Institute) — Medics at a London hospital have carried out an in-womb blood transfusion on a child who was just 20-weeks old.
A doctor used an ultrasound sensor to guide the needle into the umbilical cord, which was approximately 2 to 3mm wide at the time.
Edward, also called Teddy, received further transfusions before and after birth and is now “happy and healthy.”
Teddy developed anaemia when his red blood cells were attacked by antibodies in his mother’s blood cells.
