In 2014, after being hospitalized with a common placental infection called chorioamnionitis and a premature rupture of membranes, an expectant San Antonio mother was advised to deliver her baby immediately. The baby girl was born at 21 weeks and four days and weighing a mere 15 ounces. Born blue and in need of resuscitation, the girl’s doctors used a heating device and breathing tube to revive her.
Today, the little girl is keeping up with the other three-year-olds in her pre-school class and does not have any medical conditions. “I don’t tell her story a lot, but when I do, people are amazed,” her mother said. While their case is extraordinary, she hopes other mothers with premature babies will find “a little bit of hope and a little bit of faith” through her daughter’s story.
