Amazing Woman Endures 75 Days of Labor Upside Down in Order to Save Her Children

Joanna Krzysztonek of Poland was pregnant with triplets. One of her babies died in a miscarriage, and the other two were in serious danger. Doctors had an idea about to save them, but it required Krzysztonek to hang upside down for two and a half months. She endured this great discomfort and successfully gave birth to the remaining baby boy and girl:

The head of the Wroclaw obstetrics and neo-natal clinic where Krzysztonek gave birth, Mariusz Zimmer, said doctors managed to ease Krzysztonek's contractions, but considered her to be in labor from the birth of the first child.

"This procedure - I mean giving birth - has a beginning and an ending. If the first baby was born that means the birth had started," Zimmer said.

Both babies, Iga and Ignacy, are doing well and doctors anticipate that they will be able to go home soon.
