 Delhi's Tiniest Baby Survives, Say Doctors

Tiniest baby in Delhi who was born three-and-a-half months premature, survived despite complications, say doctors.

"Born three-and-a-half-months (24 weeks) premature and weighing only 550 grams, baby Pinky showed exemplary courage in fighting all odds and emerging a winner. Doctors treating her claimed that she might be Delhi's tiniest baby to survive after being delivered in the twenty-fourth week of pregnancy," said a statement from Balaji Action Medical Institute.

The baby was delivered Jan 28. Due to the extreme low weight and premature delivery, the baby was in an unstable condition.

"Pinky had a renal failure on day three, which was improved with conservative management. The baby also had to be put on ventilator for about 18 days," it added.

"Pinky is now double her birth weight (1.2 kg) and without any apparent physical or neuro developmental handicaps, which are common in such premature babies," said the statement.

The statement added that the hospital had treated the baby free of cost for two-and-a-half months after she was born.
