This was her first pregnancy, informed the doctor.

According to Dr Dhar, the woman was referred to department of medical oncology at Babina Cancer Hospital for further treatment. 

To save both the mother and the baby all at once is a high-risk. The doctors, however, took the charge and explained safe administration of chemotherapy under strict monitoring of both mother and foetus.

The lady underwent four cycles of chemotherapy successfully, which controlled her cancer. Moreover, the team gradually took her to safety and a healthy male baby was delivered through C-section in second week of this month, it said.

The couple also expressed their gratitude to the hospital and said that they feel really fortunate that they were able to be at the best facility, with the best doctors and staff in the state.
