35-year-old Edita Tracey was at hair salon when she began experiencing chest pain. The pregnant woman, three weeks away from her due date, was rushed to the hospital where doctors learned that her aorta (the main artery connected to the heart) was damaged. 

She needed to be admitted for surgery immediately but doctors also had to make sure her baby was safe. Tracey's daughter, Arabella was born moments after she was put under anesthesia!
