A baby girl born in India weighing less than a bar of chocolate survived against all odds.
Baby Manushi from Rajasthan, India, has earned the appropriate moniker of “little wonder.” The 48-year-old Seeta delivered her lovely girl by C-section when she was 28 weeks along. Sadly, Seeta’s blood pressure was abnormally high, and the doctors found that her baby wasn’t getting enough blood via the placenta.
The decision to birth the baby was made pretty swiftly.
Manushi was only 14 ounces when she entered the world for the first time. Her diminutive size and underdeveloped organs, which included underdeveloped lungs, brain, heart, and kidneys, made it unlikely that she would survive.
Manushi’s organs ultimately grew enough during her six months in the neonatal critical care unit for her to be able to be discharged from the hospital. She weighed 5.2 pounds when medical professionals released her.
But it wasn’t an easy battle for her life. Manushi was given a ventilator from the moment of her birth and had a 1 percent chance of surviving. Despite all the obstacles, she succeeded.
Manushi’s underdeveloped gut prevented her from being nourished enough, so medical professionals injected her blood with all the vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, lipids, and amino acids she required.
Manushi began breastfeeding her when she was seven weeks old, a positive indicator. She then began to breathe more independently, and the rest of her organs developed regularly.
Contrary to popular belief in some regions of India, doctors were motivated to save this girl’s life to convey the message that female children are just as vital as male children.
The hospital’s director, Dr. Sunil Janged, stated: “We decided to save the infant’s life and give her essential medical treatment and attention because we wanted to send out a message that a girl child must be protected.” “We provided her with the appropriate medical attention and care,”
According to records, Emilia Grabarczyk is the world’s smallest surviving infant. She was born in 2015 in Wittenberg, Germany, weighing only 8 ounces.
We hope for a bright future for baby Manushi.
