And even her doctors are amazed.
A mother who refused to abort her unborn baby after discovering she had leukaemia, has stunned doctors by giving birth to a healthy baby girl.
Victoria Webster, 33, was diagnosed with cancer during a routine blood test when she was 21 weeks pregnant.
Medics pleaded with her to have a late termination so she could start on a course of life-saving chemotherapy – but warned the medication would kill her unborn daughter.
The mother-of-two decided to keep her baby, and delay her treatment – and incredibly, she is now on the road to recovery after giving birth to a healthy baby girl.
Mrs Webster from Birmingham, said: ‘My doctor told me I needed to make a choice and decide whether I should keep my baby.‘To me, there was no decision to make. I had already bonded with my baby while she was growing inside me and as her mum, I had to protect her.
‘Doctors kept telling me I should have a termination – but I had made up my mind, and my husband Martyn supported me.
‘It’s the best decision I have ever made. I can’t imagine my life without my daughter. Since having Jessica last April, I’ve had a course of chemo and I’m beating leukaemia.’
