I thought a week-long labour was tough!

Not that I ever had one (my personal record is a wimpy 18 hours), but I know someone who did. But this mom's ordeal tops them all:

A Polish woman endured what's being called "the longest labour ever" to ensure that her premature babies would survive. And they did.Joanna Krzysztonek spent 75 days in labour lying nearly upside down in an effort to save her two unborn children after the third, born at 22 weeks, died.
Wow. That's dedication. Good on her--and good on her doctors for supporting her and helping save her children. Some doctors would have told her it wasn't worth it, and she should just "start over". May she and her family thrive.
