World's Youngest Premature Baby To Be Ever Born

This post is about a 25 weeks baby, Jett Morris. As he was born so early, no one thought that he would survive, but then something shocking happened.

Mhairi Morris was pregnant, but at 20 weeks, her water broke. Doctors told her that the pregnancy was not viable, and advised her to terminate it but Mhairi and her husband, Paul, couldn't bring themselves to take the step.

This move of the couple is encouraging for parents to think carefully before terminating premature pregnancies.

Jett Morris was born at 25 weeks after his mother's water broke. He weighed a mere 1.4lbs at birth.

The Survival

Jett was born very light-weight and could easily fit into his dad's fist. Mhairi and Paul Morris believed that Jett was a healthy baby, but  when she had her labor 20 weeks into her pregnancy, the situation changed dramatically.

After birth, Jett badly suffered from lung disease and jaundice. The baby also had two holes in his heart. Doctors warned the couple that the baby could have severe brain damage.

After Jett's lungs and organs developed, he soon recovered from the illness. Doctors told the parents that the holes in his heart should not affect his life at all.

Mhairi's Concerns.

Mhairi went against her doctor's advice of terminating the baby and look where Jett is today; she explains: "We have a happy outcome, but I worry that other mothers could have had an abortion when their babies might have survived."

"Finding out it was a boy made it very hard to accept a termination" she added.

Mhairi didn't give up.

She was in the early pregnancy unit, and no one from Pediatrics came to talk to her about her other options. She just had a 20- week scan and everything seemed perfect to her. She decided to go home with the baby.

Concerns for other mothers.
