Janet Jackson Desperate To Save Her Baby

Complications put her flat on her back.

Mature mom-to-be Janet Jackson is locked in a life-or-death battle to save her unborn child!

Faced with a high-risk pregnancy, the 50-year-old pop star is following doctors’ orders and praying she’ll deliver a healthy baby, sources told Star.

The “Control” singer is now on bed rest, and fears developing serious complications, such as preeclampsia and gestational diabetes.

“Janet has been told by her doctors that she can only be on her feet for a maximum of two hours a day because of her high-risk pregnancy at 50,” said a source.

“The rest of the time, she either stays in bed or sits in a chair with her legs elevated.”

Women older than 35 are usually considered to be at “advanced maternal age,” and need to take special care during a pregnancy.

Janet’s husband, Qatari billionaire Wissam Al Mana, 41, is so determined to have an heir that he’s arranged for her doctors to come to their home, confided the source.

“Janet is in London trying to take things slow until the baby is born,” dished an insider. “She understands there are risks because of her age. She’s doing everything the doctors tell her to do.”

Six months ago, the superstar announced she was postponing her concert tour to focus on trying to start a family with Wissam, who she married in 2012. She was previously married to James DeBarge and René Elizondo Jr.

As reported in The National ENQUIRER, the youngest of the famous Jackson family siblings faced another life-or-death crisis last winter when doctors found a growth on her vocal cords.

On Christmas Eve 2015, Janet revealed she was postponing her Unbreakable tour due to surgery.

“Please pray for me, my family and our entire community during this difficult time,” she announced.
