To say Fatema Al Ansari had a high-risk pregnancy is a massive understatement. At 19, a blood clot was found in a major vein to her intestines, and in 2007 she had surgery in which she was given a new liver, pancreas, stomach, and small and large intestine.
Then just a few weeks ago, Ansari, now 26, did what no one thought she could do -- she gave birth. According to the Associated Press, Ansari, who lives in Qatar, delivered her daughter, Alkadi Alhayal, on February 26 in the same Miami hospital in which her surgery was performed. The baby weighed in at 4 pounds, 7 ounces, and both mom and baby are doing well. Incredible.
One transplant surgery is a huge deal, but to have five vital organs replaced is monumental. So the fact that she recently gave birth to a healthy baby girl is what many would call miraculous.
