Janett Walker gives birth thanks to bionic cervix | Metro.co.uk

Janett Walker, who suffered four miscarriages and lost a premature baby, was fitted with the device after it was found her uterus was too weak to support an unborn baby.

The operation to ‘clamp’ Ms Walker’s cervix allowed her to carry baby Ainka – meaning ‘cherished one’ – to 37 weeks, when she gave birth by Caesarean section in June.

‘I just can’t believe it. I wake up sometimes and think my beautiful baby was a dream but there she is asleep in her cot,’ she said.

‘If I hadn’t been fitted with the bionic cervix, I would never have been able to have a child,’

The 41-year-old, who lives with husband Graham, 42, in Windermere, Cumbria, now wants other women to know this operation is available.

‘It takes doctors a matter of minutes to check if a woman has a weak cervix. Although the procedure is common in the US, many doctors here aren’t aware of it.’
