Newborn Baby Clutches The Contraceptive Coil Designed To Prevent His Birth.
Hellein says she has used Mirena in the past and it has worked for her.
"I was given a due date of May 4th...even my OB said 'The Force is Strong with this one.' This boy was definitely a HUGE surprise," Hellein wrote on her Instagram photo.
Whether she got pregnant before or after the device was inserted, Dexter's birth is still spectacular.
"This woman is very lucky that when the placenta grew over the IUD it did not disrupt the blood flow to the placenta," Ghasseminia explained that this often leads to miscarriage.
Even Hellein was afraid of the possible outcome.
"From what I had read online, the majority of IUD pregnancies are either not viable or end in miscarriage. I assumed I was only a few weeks along — eight weeks at the most," she admits.
"Although he wasn’t planned, my family and I feel incredibly blessed," Hellein told the Metro UK.
"I was overwhelmed with all kinds of emotions. I felt he was meant to be," Hellein reveals.
Still she went ahead with the pregnancy, finding out later on she was farther ahead than she originally suspected.
"One risk of becoming pregnant while using Mirena is called ectopic pregnancy. This means that the pregnancy is not in the uterus," the company warns. "It may occur in the fallopian tubes. Signs of ectopic pregnancy may include unusual vaginal bleeding or abdominal pain."
