We all know that babies can kick while they are in the womb. Sometimes it’s even a special moment when they do! However this was a VERY unexpected results when the baby decided to kick in the mothers stomache.

The woman went to the hospital 35 weeks pregnant complaining of stomach pains. Doctors saw how low her blood pressure was and gave her an ultrasound, thinking her womb had been ruptured.

Instead, they found out that the baby had kicked through the mother’s uterus wall and into her abdominal cavity. The child’s thighs were stuck in the hole.

Doctors performed an emergency C-section because the mom was losing a lot of blood and the baby was at risk of contracting a life-threatening infection. Both their lives were saved.

The mom, it turned out, had a 3-inch tear in her womb. Apparently, she had previously had some fibroids removed from her womb, which left a scar and a weak spot on the uterus wall.

Luckily the mother and baby are now doing very well.
