Liverpool doctors fit woman with bionic cervix


Experts at Liverpool Women's Hospital have performed a minor miracle on a couple who had four miscarriages and lost one premature baby.

Janet Walker and Graham Lobb, who live in Windermere, were about to give up trying for a baby after six years of heartache.

Doctors at Liverpool Women's Hospital fitted Janet with a bionic cervix and she recently gave birth to Ainka.

The cervix allowed Janet to carry Ainka to 37 weeks, when she gave birth by caesarean section.
