Mother undergoes procedure to treat spina bifida of unborn baby

A pregnant mother in the United Kingdom underwent a high risk surgical procedure to treat her unborn daughter’s spina bifidaAccording to reports, Gina Lavis was nearly 20 weeks pregnant when she learned that her baby had spina bifida.

While aborting the baby is the choice of many women in this situation, Lavis decided to undergo a procedure in Belgium that, according to her doctor, was considered “high risk.” The team of surgeons reportedly treated the baby’s congenital defect by patching the hole in the unborn baby’s spine. The operation lasted three hours. Lavis’ daughter, Frankie, is now 14 months old and beginning to take her first steps. 

While Frankie’s story is a happy one, far too many babies in the U.S. are born with serious congenital defects like spina bifida. This terrible condition can be associated with the prescription of Depakote to pregnant mothers. If your family has suffered any injuries or debilitating conditions as a result of negligent pharmaceutical companies, the legal team at Williams Hart may be able to help you recover funds.
