Woman Delivers ‘Stone Baby’ After 60 Year Pregnancy

In a bizarre turn of events straight out of Mr. Ripley’s personal files, comes this true story of a 92-year-old woman who delivered a child (albeit not a live baby) she had been carrying for over half a century! (Long pregnancies are one thing, but THAT is ridiculous!)

Huang Yijun, aged 92, is from southern China and she recently made news after delivering a baby known as a lithopedion, aka ‘Stone Baby’.


Huang Yijun told the press she didn’t have the money to have her fetus removed after doctors told her it had died inside her in 1948.

So she simply did nothing at all about it.

Lithopedion is a very rare medical phenomenon, which occurs when a pregnancy fails and the fetus actually calcifies while still in the mother’s body.

Medically speaking, what often happens is the implanted fetus gets to an advanced stage before it dies. Too large to be absorbed by the body, the remains of the child or its surrounding amniotic sac slowly calcify, turning to stone as a way to protect the woman’s body from infection from the decomposing tissue.

If no complications occur, believe it or not, the mother can basically just go on with her life.

According to the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine, only 290 cases of lithopedions have ever been documented by medical literature.

We really need to change our mentality,if it were Africa,it would have been attributed to witchcraft,and some pastors,and imams would quickly use that to defraud gullible victims.

Africa truly has a long way to go.
*back to topic* God is indeed awesome.

Thank God it didnt Happen In Nigeria,
One pastor would have come up and claim that he made the maracle happen, and people would have trooped into his church.






But wait o, what was she thinking all those years.

Just because u hadn't heard it before doesn't mean it doesn't exist or didn't happen.
Do yourself a favor, look up Lithopedion and see what you find.
