Woman Has Twins After 75 Days With Legs Up
by Staff

A Polish woman who was instructed to lie with her legs in the air for 75 days successfully gave birth to twins, doctors said.

Professor Mariusz Zimmer, who oversaw the birth in Wroclaw, said Joanna Krzysztonek was expecting triplets when she went into labor in the fifth month of her pregnancy and lost one of the fetuses, reported Thursday.

Doctors were able to stop the woman's contractions with medication and she was instructed to lie still with her legs up to give the remaining two babies the best chance of survival.

Zimmer said Krzysztonek followed the instructions for 75 days and twins Iga and Ignacy were born healthy.

"Joanna took a risk, and following great dedication gave birth to two wonderful children," Zimmer told the daily Super Express.

Krzysztonek said she was happy she followed the doctors' instructions.

"It was only three months," she said. (c) UPI
