A woman from England lamented that fact that her mother died earlier this year before she ever got the chance to tell her she was pregnant. Now, she says something happened that's giving her comfort and it all surrounds a recent ultrasound.
According to the Liverpool Echo, Rebecca Melia's mother died in February after a battle with kidney cancer, but she believes she spotted her face in an ultrasound photo of her baby boy.
You can see what Melia thinks is her mother's face to the left of the baby's calf:
Before she went for an ultrasound in June, she said she was talking to a photograph of her mother, "saying I wish she was coming with me."
"This is her 14th grandchild and she has been there for every one," the 30-year-old mother-to-be told the Echo.
During the ultrasound, Melia said she felt the technician was taking a long time, causing her to think there was something wrong with the fetus of her unborn child.
"Not even thinking what was to come, the lady gave me the picture and she said ‘I think you might like this one’ with a smile on her face. And the nurse did know my mum had passed away," Melia told the Echo.
Once she got home, Melia took a closer look at the picture and said she saw the ghost-like image of her mother's face in the scan.
"I couldn’t believe it, I was shocked, happy and overwhelmed all at the same time," Melia told the newspaper. "My mum’s face, which I longed to see, was there as clear as day on my scan."
This is not the first time parents-to-be claim to have spotted their deceased loved ones in ultrasound scans. Last week, the U.K. tabloid the Daily Mirror published similar photos of a woman who said she saw her grandmother's face in an ultrasound.
