Pregnant mom carries dying baby to term to donate organs – WNDU-TV

(WVLT) — Twenty-three year-old Krysta Davis learned early in her pregnancy that there was no chance the growing baby in her womb would live beyond a few hours after its birth.

Doctors told Krysta her child’s brain and skull had not completely formed.

Doctors gave Krysta two choices. They could induce labor immediately or she could carry the child to full term, girth birth, and then donate its organs.

Krysta chose to carry her child full term and “give other babies a second chance at life.”

“We decided that even if we couldn’t bring our daughter home, no mother would have to go through what we were going to go through,” Davis told People Magazine.

Baby Rylei was born on Christmas Eve and ended up passing away on New Year’s Eve, living much longer than expected. Rylei donated two heart valves, and her lungs will be used for research and development, according to Chattanooga TV station WTVC-TV.
