World's Smallest Mother is Having Her 3rd Baby
This is Stacey Herald, 35, who is just 2ft 4in tall and who suffers from Osteogenesis Imperfecta, a genetic bone disorder. This disorder provokes severe respiratory problems due to underdeveloped lungs. She has already two daughters with her husband Will who have outgrown their mother. The first girl has the same condition as her mother; the second one is completely healthy.
The third baby they are awaiting is a boy. The family is very thrilled.
Stacy is risking her life to have this baby as well as she did while she was pregnant with the girls. Doctors say that when the baby gets very large, it would eventually crush her organs, strangling her from the inside out. But Stacy and Will hope that the pregnancy will go smooth and 4 weeks from now they will have a beautiful baby boy.
