Doctors said abort—baby boy born with brain outside skull survives, and thrives!

A shocking discovery in an ultrasound made doctors doubt this child would be able to “be human”—but what they didn’t realize was, there is always hope… 

Tembe and Sipho Moyo from Perth, Australia, were anticipating the birth of their firstborn with great excitement. When Tembe fell pregnant, everything was going smoothly. At 21 weeks, Tembe happily went for her checkup and ultra scan.

Tembe and her husband were unexpectedly confronted with most-shocking news: their baby son had nasal encephalocele, a very rare condition where the brain protrudes from a hole in the forehead.

They were then informed that they must not expect that their child would “be a human being,” due to the enormous growth. The couple was advised to terminate the pregnancy immediately.

The couple rejected the idea, and Tembe relates that “her baby was telling her that he is OK” when she had the ultra scan. They decided to stick together through thick and thin, come what may.

At one week old, Jayden underwent complicated, risky surgery. “It was confronting. We were scared. We were shattered. Lots of tears,” Mr. Moyo told 7 News.

Tim Hewitt, the plastic surgeon part of the team of 10 specialist surgeons from Princess Margaret Hospital and King Edward Memorial Hospital, said the operation was lifesaving and extremely delicate.

Surgeons said it was the biggest growth they had ever seen. After the marathon six-hour surgery, doctors were amazed that Jayden managed to recuperate so well.

His surgeons did an outstanding job and doctors were amazed at Jayden’s ability to recover so well.

Jayden is a great kid, he is full of the joys of living, and his recovery was an astonishing feat for one so young.

“Jayden makes us happy. His smile, considering everything he’s gone through, he’s just an amazing boy,” Mr. Moyo said.
