She stated that: “The prompt diagnosis of prenatal growth deficiencies was not possible in the past due to lack of medical progress and facilities. This increased the rate of birth defects and mothers with stillborn infants". She also explained that: “specialists can operate on babies in the womb to diagnose and treat deficiencies, including disorders of nervous, digestive and urinary systems, which could increase the risk of stillbirth and defects, in case they remain untreated.” She continued: “Hirschsprung’s disease affects the nervous system in abdomen and leads to digestive problems in children. In the past, Iranian surgeons had to perform consecutive surgeries on the patients, which were accompanied with bleeding," She appreciated these events and declared: "Today, such a disorder is removed through only one surgery and without any cut and bleeding, thanks to Iran`s great achievements in medical sciences."
