Mum gives birth to healthy baby after being told to abort daughter 14 times

A mum gave birth to a healthy baby after being told to abort her daughter 14 times.

Kiera Meldrum, 20, was offered an abortion every week following her 21-week scan which showed her unborn child had Grade 3 severe ascites-which causes an abnormal build up of fluid in the bowel.

But Kiera, who had suffered four previous miscarriages, refused to abort her daughter.

The determined mum went into labour at 34 weeks and was terrified of losing daughter Lillee-Rose as she was whisked away for emergency surgery minutes after birth.

But after multiple life-saving operations and eight long weeks in hospital, Kiera was finally able to take her baby home.

Six months on, little Lillee-Rose is home and happy, and while she has a delicate bowel, doctors don’t anticipate any problems in the future.

Kiera, from York, said: “I refused to terminate Lillee-Rose every time they told me to, and I’m so happy I listened to my heart instead of the doctors.
