World’s Tiniest Baby Ever to Survive, Goes Home

Science and technology has expanded the care that can be provided to premature infants. In San Diego, the world’s smallest baby, born at just 23 weeks gestation, went home after a five month NICU stay. Weighing just 8.6 ounces, she was roughly the size of an apple at birth. She was delivered by emergency C-section due to concern that the mother’s health was at immediate risk and the baby was not gaining enough weight.  Details at:
