In England, doctors managed to save a tiny girl who weighed only 346 g at birth. For the first time in the last 15 years, such a small premature baby was born. Doctors gave her only 5% chance for survival. But the parents of the baby – 25-year-old Kim Brown and 26-year-old Ryan Evans- did not lose hope and believed in the best.
At 24 weeks of pregnancy, Kim’s ankles began to swell. After contacting the doctors, the woman was diagnosed with preeclampsia, which is a serious complication that threatens not only the life of the fetus, but also the mother. During the examination it was revealed as well that the baby stopped developing at 21 weeks. In addition, the fetus had a bad pulse.
On June 14, 2018, doctors urgently performed a cesarean section on Kim. Tiny Isabella Evans was immediately placed in a cuvette for premature babies, connected to oxygen and wrapped in bubble wrap to warm her.
When she was born, the girl weighed as much as a can of Coca-Cola, and her height was less than a package of baby wet wipes.
Three weeks later, doctors revealed that the baby had serious intestinal problems. She underwent surgery, and three months later – a second one. Later, Isabella had an operation on her eyes with the use of a laser.
