Singapore's smallest premature baby, weighing 345g, beats the odds to survive; parents ‘indebted’ to medical team | Video

(Updated: )

Madam Rohani was 23 weeks pregnant when her blood pressure rose sharply due to severe preeclampsia. Doctors told Mdm Rohani and her husband that the child's survival rate was about 20 per cent. Despite their chances, the husband and wife decided that Mdm Rohani would deliver the baby by an emergency caesarean section. Zaiya was born on Mar 27, after just 23 weeks and six days. Weighing 345g, she is possibly one of Singapore's smallest babies to survive and be discharged. Six months after she was born, Zaiya now weighs a healthy 4.27kg.
