It was later established that the complex procedure was part of an elaborate plan to save the baby’s life.

The New York Post reported that when the 23-year-old mom-to-be had a prenatal anatomy scan at 18 weeks of pregnancy in March, it showed that her son had spina bifida, a congenital defect that adversely affects a fetus’ spinal cord during gestation and can lead to learning and developmental disabilities and paralysis.

Ashlea says she soon sought second and third opinions from specialists in Orlando, which is just over two hours away from her hometown of Jacksonville, Florida.

“I was in shock. I couldn’t even speak when the doctor was telling us this."

Ashlea learned that there was hope for her son. She could potentially undergo cutting-edge surgery to repair his spine while he was still gestating.

Roughly six weeks after the troubling diagnosis, Ashlea went under the knife. Doctors made a cesarean incision along her stomach, broke her water and successfully repaired the sizable lesion, or abnormality, plaguing the L2 vertebrae in the baby’s lower back.

Then they repositioned the tot inside Ashlea’s tummy, sewed her up and put her on strict bed rest until the baby develops enough for an actual C-section delivery at 37 weeks. The procedure involved full anaesthesia and took roughly six hours.

The mum further said:

"But they monitor you very closely, so the next two weeks I’ll be in Orlando in a Ronald McDonald house after already being in hospital for a week."

Jaiden said that the doctors refilled the area with saline and it became the amniotic fluid again, Times Now News reported.

Ashlea is about 27 weeks along and has noticed her baby’s health has improved.
