At 19 weeks pregnant, Jodie Mcintyre’s water broke.

Lily was living without the waters and it was just so 
horrible,” she told Ediburgh News. “The doctors scanned her and they said she wasn’t going to make it and I would miscarry.”

At 20-weeks, Jodie says doctors suggested that she have an abortion as it fell within the 24-week legal limit in the UK.

But Jodie refused.

From the report:
