Doctors Didn’t Expect Her To Survive More Than 3 Weeks, She Defied The Odds To Survive

When Mollie Perrin was born premature, three months before the scheduled date, both her parents and doctors were afraid of losing the baby due to her medical condition. She weighed only 1lb 1 oz after birth, on 27 April, and given her medical condition, she was expected not to survive for more than three weeks. The doctors told distressed Mr. and Mrs. Perrin not to expect their daughter to survive, as she was diagnosed with Intrauterine Growth Restriction (IUGR), a placental disorder before birth. But the tiny baby fighter survived against all odds and has shown incredible positive growth since birth. The tiny bundle of joy has proved that miracles do happen, and she is one among the many!

It was a tear-dropping moment for mom, Stephanie, 34, and dad, James, 38, when they cuddled their baby for the first time. She is so tiny, James’ wedding ring fits easily around her arm. Mr. Perrin is very happy to know that finally they’ll be able to take their daughter home for the first time. He says, “It will be such a relief to take her home. That's been the hardest bit; going home and not taking our baby daughter with us. Seeing all these other parents come in, having their baby and being able to take them home has been heart-breaking. But knowing we will soon be able to do that is a massive relief.”

Stephanie underwent an emergency Caesarean operation on 27 April in  Hull East Yorkshire Women and Children's hospital after being under observation for two weeks. The ultrasound results of Mrs. Perrin had stated that the placenta wasn’t working properly due to an umbilical cord restriction, which restricted the growth of the foetus. But Mollie overcame all the pain bravely, and now she weighs 5 lbs 10 oz. May God bless the Perrin family!
