Woman Gives Birth To Baby Inside An MRI Machine

Baby in Birth Canal

For the first time ever, a woman gave birth to her baby inside an MRI machine.  Images like the one above were captured in an attempt to better understand the birthing process.  You can read about this early December occurrence in these two articles:

1) Baby Born Inside an MRI Machine, Captured in Breakthrough Imagery
2) Birth time at the Charité Hospital: world's first delivery of a baby in an open MRI scanner from Philips

St. Gerard, please intercede for us, that we may remember
to center all this work on Christ and His will for us.  Amen.
