World’s Medical science do not believe in God but they do believe in the Miracles. And today we are introducing you to a miracle in herself, Yes we are introducing you to the tiniest baby in the world Emilia Grabarczyk. This is no less than a miracle that Emilia survived a really early delivery. And  those who do not believe in miracles, should start believing in miracles after seeing these pictures of Emilia.

Emilia is a living miracle in herself as she is the “world’s smallest baby”. Emilia is just 8.6 inches (22 centimetres) in height and weighs no more than a “bell pepper” and her inch-long feet is smaller than a thumbnail.

The world’s smallest baby Emilia defied all the odds and she was born in Witten in West Germany. Emilia’s height is just 8.6 inches and she weighs only 230 grammes. When Emilia was born, everyone believed that she would not survive, but the medical team tried their best and Emilia also survived to live.

Doctors are calling her “A Little Fighter”.

The doctors and the hospital staff treating her labelled her ‘the little fighter‘, she survived and she thrived. She surprised everyone. The local German reports say that she’s the lightest premature baby in the world to survive. A large banana weighs about 7 ounces and an orange weighs around 6 ounces, Emilia weighed just 8 ounces.

The head of children and youth clinic at St Mary’s hospital in Germany Dr Bahman Gharavi called Emilia’s survival a miracle. He said that the combined effort of paediatricians, gynaecologists and paediatric surgeons is remarkable, but it was Emilia’s will to live that made this miracle possible.

He said that “Even children with a birth weight of 14 ounces rarely survive. We have to thank Emilia as well for her own survival. She is a little fighter. For more than six months, it was unclear whether she would survive. Only in recent weeks, she is getting more robust.”

What were the complications with the delivery of Emilia?

The Prof Dr Sven Schiermeier, chief physician of obstetrics, together with the parents’ consent decided in the beginning of the 26th week of pregnancy, to deliver the baby by Caesarean section. Otherwise, Emilia would have died in the womb, she was not getting the required nutrition.

Emilia was born so early that it led to subsequent complications.

Emilia’s early arrival and very low birth was surrounded by a lot of uncertainties. There was an increased risk for complications including an increased risk of hyperactivity and learning difficulties. But Emilia showed no signs of serious disability.

Emilia was initially fed with a tiny tube. The hospital staff and nurses used a cotton bud soaked in sugar water to reduce her pain or discomfort.

Her mother Mrs Grabarczyk said, “There were many difficult days and many tears, but she clearly wanted to survive.”

    I really loved to read the story? Why you know my granddaughter was born on 20 April 2016 exactly after 192 days of pregnancy. She was weighing 870 GMs. She was treated at Bhatia Hospital Tardeo Mumbai India. She was on ventilator for weeks together. She developed pneumonia once and collapsed lung after wards. She was kept In NICU for 93 days. She also developed ROP for which three sittings of laser were given by Dr Karobi Lahiri of Bombay hospital.
