Smallest Baby In South Asia To Ever Survive Hailed ‘Miracle’ By Parents

January 13, 2018 | Author: | Posted in Medical News

Manushi, a 28-week-old infant from Rajasthan, India, became the smallest surviving baby to have ever born in South Asia.

Born on June 15, 2017, Manushi weighed just 14 ounces — not bigger than a large bar of Cadbury chocolate — making her one of the smallest babies ever to be born in the world, New York Post reported. 

The doctors at Jivanta Children’s Hospital in the India city of Udaipur decided 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. An ultrasound performed on Seeta 12 weeks before her estimated delivery date revealed a lack of blood flow to the placenta.
