Incredibly Premature Baby Survives Despite Weighing Less Than 1 Pound

Incredibly Premature Baby Survives Despite Weighing Less Than 1 Pound

"The world is a place full of wonders, and anything can happen here".

Baby Manushi weighed just 400 grams when she was born 12 weeks prematurely after her mum began to suffer from complications related to the pregnancy. She was born weighing just 8 ounces and measuring 8.7 inches.

In all, she was in the NICU for nearly 210 days and on Thursday, when she was discharged, her weight was close to 2400 grams.

Little Manushi was born at 28 weeks in India, tipping the scales at just.88lbs (0.39kg). Her brain is structurally normal and eyes are also developing normal. The doctors who cared for Manushi said they hope her life will make a statement to the Indian society about the value of girls. So doctors suggested the operation to save both lives.

After her mother had to undergo an emergency c-section, Manushi was born not breathing, along with paper-thin skin and underdeveloped organs. Seeta was born to a couple married for 35 years and was in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Jivanta Children's Hospital in Udaipur for nearly 210 days, was discharged on Thursday, after weighing close to 2.4kg.

Whereas she could not be fed adequately due to the immaturity of her gut and at the time of birth she even lost weight too, but after seven weeks she was able to consume milk.

She was given a 0.5 per cent chance of survival. She spent 210 days in NICU.

Trump's doctor to answer questions following president's physical
The president loves fast food, well-done steaks with ketchup, chocolate cake, ice cream and is said to drink 12 Diet Cokes a day. Jackson will release a brief statement following the physical , White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Thursday.

Her mum Seeta, 48, and dad Giriraj, 50, from Rajasthan, India, call her their real life miracle.

"She was struggling to breathe, so was immediately put on advanced respiratory support ventilator to expand her tiny, immature lungs".

"She's just fought and fought and fought against all the odds, but she's made it", Seeta said.

Neonatologist Sunil Janged, who led a team of doctors and nursing staff for ensuring the girl's incredible survival, claimed that she was the smallest newborn baby to survive in India and South Asia.

Manushi's medical treatment would have normally cost 1 million rupees ($15,700/£11,500), but due to her family's low income, Jivanta Children's Hospital chose to massively reduce the bill.

"We chose to save the life of the baby and offer her necessary medical care and attention because we wanted to send out a message that a girl child must be protected", Dr Janged said. Especially in the state like Rajasthan where female baby abortions are so prevalent, this step is very necessary to raise awareness and stop the bad practice.
