Woman dies and after two days, she gives birth

Wednesday, January 14, 2009

Despite the fact professional ice skater Jayne Soliman was declared brain dead last week, doctors were able to keep her body alive long enough to deliver her unborn child.
Doctors had kept 41-year-old Mrs Soliman's heart beating after she suffered a brain haemorrhage.

For 48 hours they pumped large doses of steroids into her body to help the baby's lungs develop.

Then they delivered baby Aya Jayne by caesarean section. At 26 weeks, she weighed just 2lb 11/2oz.

The tiny infant was placed on her mother's shoulder for a moment before being handed to her father, Mahmoud Soliman.
