(Fox News)— After suffering several miscarriages, Kiera Meldrum, 20, was delighted to learn she was pregnant again in July 2018. But roughly five months into her pregnancy, the United Kingdom woman was told her unborn daughter was suffering from a serious medical condition that spurred doctors to recommend abortion.
But Meldrum, of York, refused — fourteen times, she claims.
“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,” Meldrum told SWNS of her now 6-month-old daughter.
Doctors told Meldrum her child had Grade 3 severe ascites to the bowel, a condition that causes an abnormal buildup of fluid in the abdomen. The mother was told Lillee-Rose was suffering from the condition at her 21-week scan.
