Baby Born Weighing Less Than A Bar Of Chocolate

Smallest baby survives after spending 210 days in NICU Baby born weighing just 400 grams is 'one of the smallest ever to survive'

The doctors at Jivanta Children's Hospital in the India city of Udaipur chose to perform an emergency C-section on the 48-year-old Seeta, Manushi's mother, after she underwent complications during her pregnancy, including extremely low blood pressure.

The girl was recently discharged from the hospital after she gained normalcy which took a six-month-long clinical course.

Seeta had apparently suffered dangerously high blood pressure during her pregnancy, and an ultrasound revealed that there was a worrying absence of blood flow to the foetus.

"The blood supply to the baby was blocked due to the mother's health due to which we did an emergency caesarean operation and the baby was delivered on 15 June 2017".

When Manushi was born, she measured just 8.6 inches.

Manushi, who was born not breathing, with paper-thin skin and underdeveloped organs, is being discharged from hospital after six months, but still weighs just 5.2lbs.

She was immediately put on a ventilator and transferred to the Jivanta Children's Hospital NICU but the chances of survival were slim. She can not be fed adequately due to the immaturity of the gut.

Manushi Worlds Smallest baby girl weighing only 400 gm at birth survives after spending 210 days in NICU.

After being given a 0.5 percent chance of surviving without brain damage, Manushi has gone against all odds - with doctors saying that she appears intellectually normal.

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

"We had to start the baby on total parenteral nutrition, which basically means giving all the essential nutrients such as amino acids, carbohydrates, minerals and multivitamins directly into blood circulation [sic]".

The treatment may have charged the aged couple around one million rupees for the medical care and services but the doctors charged very low amount for the services because of the low family income. She was able to digest milk by the seventh week of her life and was able to drink from spoon after about four months. "There is no reported survival of a newborn weighing this small in the Indian sub-continent", Neonatologist Sunil Janged, who led a team of doctors and nursing staff for Manushi's survival, told The Hindu. But the couple made a decision to fight to keep her alive. She was able to go home with her parents after battling to survive for half a year. The hospital also wanted the cost reduction to send a positive message out to the local community.

Delighted mum Seeta, 48, and dad Giriraj, 50, called her their "real-life miracle".
