Surgeons work on the baby in the womb



Doctors have used a surgical cushion to adjust the baby's spine while he is still in the womb.

A 20-week scan found Jaxson Sharp from Horsham, West Sussex, had spina bifida.

Surgeons use a technique called fetoscopy to work – for the first time in the UK, such a procedure is taking place.

The medics said the measure was "not gentle," but could greatly improve the quality of Jackson's life.
