... That's icky. [Nov. 15th, 2005|02:47 pm]

There are recorded cases of babies that have been delivered through the rectum. In rare instances, blockage of the mother’s vaginal orifice may force an unborn child into the rectal area and the baby must be expelled through the anus. A nineteenth-century British doctor named Payne cited the case of a thirty-three-year-old woman who gave birth in this manner. Dr. Payne, seeing that the child was located near the rectum, anesthetized the mother and delivered the child by forceps with little trouble.

I've heard this story before actually. I think it was in something that I read about Ripley. There was a child born during that time and he had a field day with the story. I believe that the mother died during childbirth though.

Really? I guess I'm not surprised! The fact book I got this out of suggested that it was a pretty easy delivery, but I don't know how that is humanly possible. I'm certain I'd die.

I know I would at least want to. How could you look at your kid and not think of them as a great big turd then?
