Has God done a miracle here, or what?!
San Diego hospital officials are claiming they helped deliver the world's smallest surviving baby. The girl weighed eight-point-six ounces when she was born in December. She was able to go home this month as a happy, five-pound infant. Hospital officials made the announcement Wednesday.
The girl was born at 23 weeks and three days. Officials induced labor because the baby was not gaining weight in the womb. The baby's parents were told she may not survive the first 24 hours. The previous world record holder for smallest surviving baby born weighed seven grams more and was born in Germany in 2015.
The smallest surviving baby in the world was released this month from a San Diego hospital after being born at just 8.6 ounces, officials announced Wednesday. https://t.co/LUFvfwPssV— PIX11 News (@PIX11News) May 30, 2019
