In brief: No baby
A hydatidiform mole is not a baby.
It is abnormal placental development, which requires a D&C for treatment and followup to assure that it has all been removed. To ensure that you do not develop a persistent mole or choriocarcinoma, followup blood levels of HCG are checked periodically until negative for a few months and it is recommended that you do not get pregnant during that time frame.
