BRNO, Czech Republic (KETK) – A clinic in the Czech Republic reported that a baby girl was born to a brain-dead woman who was kept on life support over three months to allow the pregnancy to go through.

The girl has been named Eliska is now with her father.

The 27-year-old mother was declared brain dead when she suffered a brain hemorrhage 16 weeks into her pregnancy back in April.
