    Houston, TX (LifeNews.com) -- A surgery performed on an unborn child that is the first of its kind has saved the baby's life. Just three weeks before his due date, a tumor took over two-thirds of his chest, cramping his lungs so much that they would not have been able to expand after his birth and his stomach would fill with fluid as his heart failed.

    Deadly hernia corrected in womb Surgeons have developed an operation to repair a potentially fatal abnormality in babies before they are born.

    Hollywood, FL (LifeNews.com) -- Three-year-old Angeline Marie is spending some time in "the thinking chair" this week at preschool and her mother couldn't be prouder. "She getting a time-out now at school—which is something we never thought we'd have to worry about," says her mother Emily Gonzalez-Abreu. Angeline Marie was diagnosed with spina bifida when Gonzalez-Abreu was 16 weeks pregnant. When the perinatologist gave Abreu and her husband the news, "He said, ‘you do not want to have this child…she's going to be like a vegetable.'
