Premature Babies

This is the moving and thought-provoking story of a premature baby born when the mother was just 23 weeks pregnant who survived against all the odds. Renowned gynaecologist and obstetrician Jim Dornan tells the story of miracle baby Maisie, who was born in 1929, and explores the issues of miscarriage, fetal viability and when babies can survive outside the womb.

This story was originally published as ‘A Tiny Miracle’ in Jim Dornan’s bestselling book An Everyday Miracle: Delivering Babies, Caring for Women.
