A woman is seven months pregnant with her older sibling’s baby after discovering that pregnancy could be fatal for her sister and her unborn child.

The baby’s biological mother, Rebekah Adamson (34), was heartbroken when she found out that a surgery she had 24 years ago had left her unable to survive a pregnancy.

Rebekah, who’s from Florida in the US, had surgery to remove her bladder when she was 20 after suffering from interstitial cystitis – a chronic condition that causes bladder pressure and pain, and sometimes pelvic pain, according to the Mayo Clinic.
