What did the doctors say?
Doctors called it lithopedion and said it develops when pregnancy occurs in the abdomen instead of the uterus. Usually, when there is no blood supply during pregnancy, the fetus cannot form and the body cannot take the fetus out. After that, the body gradually transforms the fetus into stone using the same immune process. That is why the fetus found in the woman’s womb was called the ‘stone child’.
