Is It Possible To Give Birth After Death?
The question that everybody had been asking after this case had gone viral, was whether it would be possible for someone who had died to give birth. Especially after so many days. What many call ‘coffin birth’ is medically known as post mortem fetal extrusion. It occurs during decomposition of the body when tissues become depleted of oxygen and gasses such as carbon dioxide and methane are released. As medical experts explained, at the same time organ tissues are weakened and the mix of the gasses and wakened tissues causes the torso and limbs to become bloated a few days after death. Gas in the abdomen may cause the uterus to prolapse and the fetus to be expelled from the body. However as experts have stressed, there have been no records of a baby surviving following a coffin birth. How did the girl’s family react to the news? Read on to find out.
