Ashleigh Louw has been born with her heart outside her chest. The baby is being treated for the rare condition after being born in South
Doctors say the child's ribcage failed to develop properly in the womb, leaving her heart covered by just a thin layer of skin.
Ashleigh's mother Anastacia Louw, 30, said the condition was only noticeable once the child was born. The couple live in the Eldorado Park area of Johannesburg. Specialists at the Chris Hani-Baragwanath Hospital, where Ashleigh was
born, have identified the rare condition as 'pentalogy of Fallot ectopia cordis'.
Doctor Lynda Bleazard said: "I have never seen a case like this before. As there are no bones to hold the heart in place, it is a dual problem to deal with.
Pregnant women need to watch what they take and be prayful.
