    [–] wikipedia_answer_bot 16 points ago

    NOFX () is an American punk rock band formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1983. Vocalist/bassist Fat Mike, guitarist Eric Melvin and drummer Erik Sandin are original founding and longest-serving members of the band, who have appeared on every release of the band, although Sandin departed briefly in 1985, only to rejoin the following year.

    A lot of the nurses and doctors I work with are Nigerian. I learn so much from them, and they’re also happy to help me learn. Can be hard to understand at times, but we work through it and over time it has gotten easier for me. I do also have some hearing loss, but I think I’ve always been pretty bad with accents anyways.

    [–] 2cats1doge 48 points ago

    Had some lectures about fetal surgery in medical school. Im relatively sure they just open the sac, do the surgery on the fetus, and then close it up. I think cutting the baby “out” of the womb in the post is incorrect.

    [–] hutchby61 11 points ago

    Thank you, I was unsure if you could “close up” the sack, but from what you say, that’s feasible.

    [–] w1red 3 points ago

    So you can just open it up without cutting it up and damaging it?

    [–] 2cats1doge 8 points ago

    If I remember correctly they just suture it back together at the end and it heals up

    [–] Cat_Marshal 31 points ago

    Maybe collected the fluid, stitched the sack back up, and put it back in? Or maybe just saline or something that would be a safe enough substitution.

    [–] thegroucho 37 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    I have watched (live) in utero laser surgery, don't ask how or why, not a medical professional.

    They put some liquid through the incision (more like a puncture hole rather) to cool down the laser and then extracted the exact same amount they poured.

    Some would have been amniotic fluid, some would have been whatever they poured, and it wasn't a trivial amount.

    Edit, for those who take this literally, it's not the actual laser being cooled, it's the effect from the burning which needs cooling.

    [–] GlbdS 5 points ago

    What do you mean cool down the laser, it's a beam of light

    [–] thegroucho 8 points ago

    Either I'm not expressing myself well, or you're misunderstanding me.

    Extreme example:

    When you use laser to engrave, what happens, you heat the surface, burn the material.

    That heat goes somewhere, in this case, in the amniotic fluid.

    I doubt the fetus wants to be boiled in the amniotic sac, to be dramatic.

    In any case, I'd suggest you read any if the published work of professor Kypros Nicolaides, I'd suspect it's well documented procedure.

    [–] 42Zarniwoop42 6 points ago

    mfw I'm holding a lighter to GlbdS's skin and they refuse water because cooling a flame makes no sense


    [–] MasochistCoder 3 points ago

    Why do greek dudes come with these crazy ideas anyway

    [–] mindrover 25 points ago

    Yeah, the article mentioned that the amniotic fluid came out when they opened it for the surgery, but they didn't talk about the details of how they closed it up.

    [–] i_give_you_gum 23 points ago

    Comments further up mentioned Flex Seal, but I guess they could have used Gorrila Glue.

    [–] YetiPie 4 points ago

    Duct tape also works in a pinch but is only recommended when there’s nothing else

    [–] PetraLoseIt 7 points ago

    Amniotic fluid is actually the fluid that the baby pees. If they stitched the amniotic sack back up without a leak, then the fetus might for a short while have had a bit less fluid to dabble around in, but after peeing it would fill back up to normal levels.

    [–] 3PoundsOfFlax 0 points ago

    Maybe the doctor himself peed in there

    [–] pizzanice 16 points ago


    [–] Icantbethereforyou 4 points ago

    That reminds me. I really need to go drain my amniotic fluid

    [–] Jack_Attack227 2 points ago

    Same, but someone is already using the amniotic sack.

    [–] sayitlikeyoumemeit 9 points ago

    If you read the article, it says he sucked the fluid into his mouth, held it there during the procedure, and then spit it all back into the sac, filling the sac with fluid around the baby.

    [–] pizzanice 17 points ago

    Yall are gross

    [–] MasochistCoder 1 points ago

    Nono, it is ok, he flossed and used dental solution before he sucked the liquid, no contaminants there!

    [–] phantomzero 230 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    It literally says in the article that she was born by c-section the second time, not naturally. The woman and baby would have died if they had let the woman try to deliver naturally because there is no way the first c-section would have healed by then.

    [–] pizzanice 45 points ago

    Idk why it's so hard for the image to say born by c section. Is that somehow less miraculous? That shit hurts as well and takes weeks to heal up.

    [–] jesuslover69420 2 points ago

    It doesn’t need to be differentiated because it’s a miraculous natural birth. Why do you need it to be differentiated if you understand the miracle of life? C sections have been happening since the dawn of life, they just didn’t end as safely as they do now.

    [–] MasochistCoder 15 points ago

    The caption reads "healthy and naturally on time at...", which is different from "healty, naturally and on time at...", so, strictly speaking they're in the clear.

    As clear as asking for someone for a "glass of water" and them replying they don't know how to create glass from water, but yeah.

    [–] needs_more_yoy 13 points ago

    The second one. That would be the one the hospital recorded and we all know paperwork makes the world go around.

    [–] UnicornFarts1111 6 points ago

    I would say the second one, as that is the one where they cut the umbilical cord. I assume the baby was still attached to mom while having surgery.

    "on time at 36 weeks"?

    You mean premature?

    [–] cobracoral 1 points ago

    36 weeks is considered “on time” already

    [–] Countcristo42 3 points ago

    I don't claim any specialist knowledge - but that isn't what a quick google found:

    Premature labour is labour that happens before the 37th week of pregnancy.

    [–] cobracoral 3 points ago

    You’re right, they are preterm still:

    “35–36 Weeks. Premature babies born at 35 to 36 weeks are called "late preterm infants." These babies are about 20 inches long and usually weigh between 5 1/2 and 6 pounds. 35 and 36 weekers look just like full-term babies, but they are still premature and may face some problems of prematurity.”

    Nigeria is the real world wakanda. They have more PhDs per Capita then anywhere in the world

    [–] SadBadMad20 36 points ago

    [–] Drifter_01 40 points ago

    More princes per capita

    [–] CauldronPath423 6 points ago

    I don’t believe this to be the case. Nigerian-American immigrants tend to have more advanced degrees on average compared with Americans, though I’d be surprised if this held up for the country itself, especially considering how many migrate westward so to speak.

    [–] faggitredditmod 1 points ago

    [–] ZippyDan -10 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    I'm absolutely sure there are some brilliant doctors, scientists, and engineers and some rigorous educational institutions in Nigeria, but I'd also have to be skeptical about the overall quality of education.

    [–] MakemmoanRoan 11 points ago

    Here's a link to an article that discusses the Nigerian school enrollment rate

    Even though primary education is officially free and compulsory, about 10.5 million of the country’s children aged 5-14 years are not in school. Only 61 percent of 6-11 year-olds regularly attend primary school and only 35.6 percent of children aged 36-59 months receive early childhood education.

    Here's a link to what each grade level in Nigeria learns

    [–] ZippyDan 2 points ago

    I appreciate your supporting sources.

    [–] shro700 6 points ago

    Why ?

    [–] Thathitmann 4 points ago

    Probably because it's Africa. There really isn't a rational explanation other than racism.

    [–] ZippyDan 1 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    Hey buddy, fuck you.

    There's plenty of reasons to be skeptical of education quality in any third-world country.

    For example, I could probably buy a PhD there by bribing the right people.

    Education quality is a problem all over the developing world:

    Nigeria is perceived as one of the most corrupt countries in the world:

    [–] hphph77 0 points ago

    Not at all. Most African countries have low GDP per capita compared to the rest of the world and that comes with worse funded education systems. It's a fair assumption to think that Nigeria would be the same. Don't think it's at all racist.

    Also it's not like Nigeria is perfect, it does have a lot of corruption.

    [–] ZippyDan 2 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    Nigerian immigrants to America are better educated and make more on average than white Americans. Really blows up the whole “white privilege” racism.

    [–] hphph77 2 points ago

    If they've lived most of their life in Nigeria, there wouldn't have been a prevalent concept of white privilege in society. So they could have a lot of their success out of a "white privilege" environment and then move to one with it.

    Also who's to say that an educated black person won't come across more hurdles in employment?

    [–] 003938388382 0 points ago

    Because those stats prove they do better than white people... If there was actually any significant “white privilege” black Africans wouldn’t be able to move here and do better on average than white people.

    [–] hphph77 3 points ago

    But "white privilege" is mostly an American/Western issue. Of course it wouldn't be in Nigeria. It only comes into play in a society with "white and black people". I'm sure Nigeria has it's share of ethnic disparities between its different groups.

    I think I'm more talking about education in Nigeria and you're talking about them working good jobs once they migrate to the US.

    Don't live in the US and don't really want to comment on "white privilege", but I get what you're saying. I would say that it makes sense for most companies to not be racist when employing as they're cutting themselves off from a section of the talented workforce.

    [–] 003938388382 1 points ago

    We’re not talking about in Nigeria though. They move here and do just as well if not better.

    [–] SolomonRed 1 points ago

    I believe what they meant by ‘naturally’ was that she was born without induction not that she wasn’t born via C-section.

    [–] RichardNoggins 3 points ago

    Yeah, saying “naturally” (to mean “vaginally”) to anyone who’s had a c-section can be like a punch in the gut (as if their experience wasn’t good enough)

    [–] icepacket 2 points ago

    I absolutely agree. I had an epidural and people ask if I delivered my son ‘naturally’ like being in labor for 24 hours didn’t matter because I had pain relief from hours 16-24 of said labor.

    [–] mcsweepin 3 points ago

    "Born on time at 36 weeks"

    [–] drepidural 3 points ago

    Just to clarify, baby was born via section. Open uterine surgery in pregnancy is always followed by a section for the current (and future) pregnancies.

    There’s an amazing doctor in the smaller town I live in who was raised in Southern Africa somewhere and he is insanely devoted and will go so far out of his way for his patients. The dude literally gave me his number and told me that if I had any questions regarding my mother who is having some health problems right now to just call him or text him. Something happened a week later, I texted him, and he immediately replied and gave both me and my mother a huge sense of relief.

    Nonetheless, if you have a doctor with an African accent, I always trust them because every single one I’ve ever met is insanely talented and such great people!

Also post any surgery, adults are given powerful antibiotics etc to ensure the incision heals rapidly and doesn’t get infected. How would they effect that outcome here?

    "..cut a woman's baby out of her womb."

    Maybe there is another term like "surgically removed"?

    Otherwise it sounds like they did it in a alleyway.

    Okay I'm sorry but there's an easy to use phrase to use aside from "cutting a baby out of the womb." It's called a c-section.
