Musu was at term and in beginning labor when she came to Mercy Hospital, but due to her tiny stature, her pelvic structure was too narrow for her healthy baby girl to be delivered. An emergency caesarean section was ordered, and the baby safely made her entrance into the world. Mother and baby received post-operative care and were discharged in good health. "Thank you for being there when I needed help!" she told the surgical team.
"Prolonged labor can occur when there is disparity between the fetal head and the pelvis," Dr. Aruna Stevens, who performed the surgery, explained. "The passage might be inadequate, or the passenger's head might be too big." We're glad Musu's baby had a safe journey into life!
