A "miracle" baby who survived two births after doctors found a rare and large tumor growing in her has beat tough odds.
When Margaret Boemer, a mother of three, went in for her routine ultrasound during her sixteenth week of pregnancy, the doctors discovered something unusual: a sacrococcygeal teratoma on her unborn child.
Lynlee Boemer, the baby has Sacrococcygeal Teratoma, a tumor that develops before birth and from the coccyx or tailbone, the most common tumor in newborns occurring in one in every 35,000 births and it is more often in girls than boys, reports Texas Children's. "And it was very shocking and scary, because we didn't know what that long word meant or what diagnosis that would bring".
Thus at the 23rd week of the pregnancy, doctors made an incision in Margaret's uterus, and pulled out the little girl from her legs to her torso so they could remove as much of the tumor as possible. "Even though it's the most common we see, it's still pretty rare".

However, doctors at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston told the Boemers that she had another option: open fetal surgery.
Her mom said, "God gave us this gift, and we're thankful we could give her life". By the time the surgery was performed, the tumor was larger than her fetus.
He explained that while the tumor is trying to grow by sucking blood flow from the baby, the baby is also trying to grow. Originally, she had been pregnant with twins, but lost one of the babies before her second trimester.
Paediatric surgeon and co-director of Texas Children's Fetal Center, Dr. Oluyinka Olutoye, and pediatric surgeon and co-director of Texas Children's Fetal Center, Dr. Darrell Cass led the surgery. When she was 8 days old, Cass and his team removed the rest of the tumor. And then the surgeons placed back the baby inside its mother's womb and sewed the uterus.

"Some of these tumors can be very well-tolerated, so the fetus has it and can get born with it and we can take it out after the baby's born", said Cass.
The operation took five hours, but Dr Cass said: 'The part on the foetus we do very, very quickly.
"Little Lynlee had zero complications and she recovered perfectly". She required a blood transfusion and the mother faced danger as well.
Weeks after returning from the hospital, all accounts point to LynLee Boemer, the miraculous baby born twice, making a speedy recovery and doing quite well at home. "I think she's about 7 now, and she sings karaoke to Taylor swift - she's completely normal", said Cass.
