The first ancient Egyptian mummy of a pregnant woman in the world!


According to The First News, although it was revealed in 2016 that the mummy, originally believed to be the body of the priest Hor-Djehuti, actually belonged to a woman, a new study conducted by a team of Polish scientists revealed that the woman wrapped in bandages was pregnant.

Experts determined that the woman, who was examined several times with tomographic scanning, x-rays, and three-dimensional imaging, was embalmed when she was 26 to 28 weeks pregnant.

It was noted that the age of the mummified woman, whose cause of death could not be determined, was between 20 and 30.

Researchers have not yet been able to determine the sex of the fetus in the woman’s womb.

Wojciech Ejsmond from the Institute of Mediterranean and Oriental Cultures at the Polish Academy of Sciences said, “The fetus was not removed from the belly of the deceased during mummification. That’s why this mummy is really special. This means that our ‘mummy’ is so far the only mummy in the world to have a fetus in the womb. used the expression.
