Is there any kind of skin transplant or anything they can do to save our baby ?

I'm almost seven months pregnant, and my fiance and I have recently been informed that our baby doesn't have a belly wall which is causing all the internal organs to be outside the body. My doctor said there isn't any kind of skin transplant that can be done to save the baby, but I believe otherwise. I'm going to be having a C-Section and I'm going to deliver at St.Vincent's which has a high risk OB unit. Is there any kind of skin transplant or ANYTHING they can do to save our baby?

Hello! I am 35 weeks pregnant. Started itching all over body especially palms and soles. Doctor advised lfts. Alp-210 Sgot -32u/L Sgpt-37U/L The obg suggested close fetal monitoring with ctg n lft repeats and is suspecting obstetric cholestasis. She suggested early labor induction once I complete 37 weeks. I am not vry sure if the diagnosis is not confirmed...do I go ahead with the labour induction & continue monitoring till my due date n wait for normal labour to start? Evrythings perfect with me and I was looking forward to a normal delivery. N I am strictly against c sections and I heard labor inductions in first timers 60% of the times end up in c sections. Please advise! Thnks!
