My daughter is pregnant and we just found out yesterday that his intestines are on the outside of his body. They said he will have to have surgery after birth and that it is 100% fixable. I was just wating more assurance by maybe hearing from mothers who had a baby like this and it worked out good and the baby is fine.

I, myself wasn't in this situation, but a girlfriend of mine's first baby had the same condition. She was in the hospital for quite awhile because they had to gradually put the intestines inside, but you would never know that she ever had an issue. She is a happy healthy 10 year old now! Good Luck to you, I hope all goes well.
