When Saybia’s mother was carrying her in the 23rd gestation, she suffered from a rare and risky situation that increased her blood pressure and the baby’s life was also put at risk. At the moment, the doctor decided to carry out a C-section and the little girl was born weighing 252g.

Right after being delivered, the doctors tried their best to protect and nurture the baby under strict medical supervision. Although the chance of surviving is rare and no only believe she is going to survive for long, the tiny baby leaves every by surprise for showing her resilience.

She receives intense treatment for more than 6 months to reach the size of a normal newborn

According to the doctor, the baby shows no sign of medical issues which are likely to occur in micro-preemies (babies who are born before week 28). However, it still took the baby 1 month to gain her first pound (450g).

It even took a couple of months later for the baby to get her breathing tube rejected. She was treated with intense care for more than 6 months and receives every milliliter of breast milk one by one through another tube.
