For the first time in the world, recently a mother gave birth to a tiny baby in an MRI machine. A German local media, The Local reported the birth process that goes smoothly is happening in Berlin’s Charite Hospital, one of the famous hospitals in the country.
But not just any MRI machine used, but a special machine that is designed for childbirth, so much for their safety. There was also a team of experts who assist, consisting of obstetricians, radiologists and technicians.
This event is the culmination of a project that has been designed for 2 years by researchers from the Institute for Radiology and Obstetrics Clinic (IROC) in Germany.The goal is to observe the movement from the womb until the baby into the birth canal.
During this time, the movements of the baby at birth is still a mystery that continues to debate. The movement is often not smooth, so that the infant failed to reach the birth canal and had to be removed by Caesarean section.
“There has never been an explanation that is really satisfying why some women give birth easily just 4.5 kg, while some more difficult delivery of smaller babies,” said Dr. Manny Alvarez, a gynecologist from Hackensack University ,Wednesday ( 08/12/2010).
The expected benefits from these observations, among others, to understand the various problems in childbirth, for example, babies who jammed shoulder pelvis (shoulder dystocia). According to records IROC, 15 percent of women today prefer a caesarean section to avoid the possibility.
