A Polish woman lay nearly upside down in labor for 75 days to save the lives of her two premature babies after the first of three fetuses growing inside her was born prematurely and died, Reuters reported.
Joanna Krzysztonek eventually gave birth to baby girl Iga and boy Ignacy 2-1/2 months later on February 15 at a neo-natal clinic in the southwestern Polish town of Wroclaw. Iga and Ignacy remain in special incubators, but are expected to leave the hospital soon.
Their mum had problems with maintaining her balance after leaving her unusual hospital bed, but now visits and holds her babies every day. （点击路透社网站查看原文）
