Marston green hospital

Michelle Hubbard

Brummie babby
My mum Ivy Stephens 05/05/30 had an operation to have a plastic back of the womb to be able to go on and have 3 children at Marston Green Hospital. Her first baby was known as the ‘plastic baby’. My sister Roughly in 1957, then my brother and then me in November 1969. I have tried to research anything to do with this but found nothing. Has anyone who worked there remember this at all?

Your mom may have had a defect of her womb, maybe a misshapen womb so the hospital performed a hysteroplasty or uteroplasty, basically plastic surgery of the uterus
