Mum Shocked To See Daughter's Thick Jet Black Hair On Scan

Mum Shocked To See Daughter's Thick Jet Black Hair On Scan

A mother who believed that all newborns were bald was shocked when she realised her baby girl already had thick hair in the womb - which was clearly visible at her 34 week scan.

Alexandra Jechorek, 21, remembered that her son, Kadin, five, was born bald - as were she and her office worker boyfriend, Lee Bond, 23. So she was astonished when her daughter, Maya, had a glossy mane before she was even born.

Alexandra, a stay-at-home mum from Dublin, Ireland, said: "We'd already found out we were expecting a girl at the previous scan, so at 34 weeks, we were just excited to see how much she'd grown.

"When the midwife turned the screen around, I honestly couldn't believe my eyes. There was this tiny little baby on the scan with a full head of hair. I just thought, 'No way, this cannot be possible'.

"To be completely honest, I thought all babies were born bald. My oldest Kadin came out bald, so I just thought that was how babies were when they were born.

"But once I'd taken in how much hair she had, it made me all the more excited to meet her, as Maya already looked like a proper little person."

Six weeks later, on June 9, 2019 after a swift 90 minute labour, Maya was born at The Coombe Women & Infants University Hospital, in Dublin, weighing 8lbs 9oz - and her locks caused quite a storm.

"It had already grown so long it was down past her ears. Even the nurses and the doctors turned to me and said they'd never seen a baby with so much hair in all the time they'd worked at the hospital!"

Soon Maya's incredible mop was commanding attention everywhere she went.

"We couldn't leave the house without someone complimenting Maya on her hair," Alexandra said.

"Lots of people would ask, 'How old is she?' They were shocked when I told them she was only three months old with so much hair!"

Maya's beautiful hair means that, despite her tender age, she has a demanding beauty routine.

"I shampoo and conditioner her hair every day," said Alexandra. "Then I brush it through and spray on some stay-in conditioner and dry it with a towel.

"It takes about 20 minutes, which is quite a long time considering I'm doing a one year old's hair."
