Woman gives birth then has brain surgery at Abbott Northwestern Hospital

[KARE-TV, May 10, 2015] Mother's Day will never be the same for a Minneapolis family.

Earlier this year, doctors diagnosed Chelsea Hammond, 31, with a brain tumor; she was eight months pregnant.

"We have a very large tumor, we have a pressure effect on the brain and we have a patient who is in her last days of pregnancy. So indeed, it was urgent," said Dr. Mahmoud Nagib, a neurosurgeon at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis.
