The Doctors: Recurring Molar Pregnancies
Lilia and Miguel have been married for 14 years and always dreamed of having children. One year after they got married, Lilia got pregnant, but when the doctor did the ultrasound, the baby didn’t have a heartbeat. She was told she had molar pregnancy, which is when tissue that normally develops into a fetus turns into an abnormal growth. The abnormality can trigger symptoms of pregnancy. Every time Lilia has tried to get pregnant, it would result in a molar pregnancy. She’s suffered from five molar pregnancies and her determination to have a baby has put her life at risk.
