Stanford University, California ( CNN ) - Doctors at Stanford Hospital say a congresswoman's newborn baby girl has made history by beating the odds and surviving a typically fatal condition.
Abigail Rose Beutler, the daughter of representative Jaime Beutler and her husband Daniel, was born without kidneys in the middle of July and she was still alive at two weeks old.
Some doctors say being born with no kidneys is typically diagnosed as a fatal condition.
But a team of doctors in Maryland performed a series of amniotic fluid injections and helped Abigail become the first baby with this condition, to breathe on her own after birth.
