Message Subject Premature Baby Left in Momís Arms to Die, Hospital Wonít Revive Babies Born Before 23 Weeks
Poster Handle tiger1

23 weeks is so young. Almost no chance of living. 24 weeks is really the lower end of survivability. And even if they did everything they could and it lived it would likely be disabled and mentally and physically. Kindest thing to do is not to try.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 55844404

Babies have survived being born as early as 19 weeks. The bigger the baby, the better the chance for survival, but SOME can be saved at an early gestation.
I had a neighbor who delivered her daughter at 22 weeks. She spent 3 months in the hospital, but not only survived, but thrived.
