Kimberly Mueller is the smallest baby ever to be born after she was born 15 weeks prematurely.
She was just 10.2 inches long and weighed in at just 10.5 ounces. She is now 6 months old and has beaten the odds of what was a 1/1000 chance of survival.
“Babies as small as this usually have no chance,” said Dr Oliver Moeller, a heart specialist who treated her. “We are incredibly lucky that she lived. Such a case I have never experienced. We had a lot of luck … a lot.” Kimberly is the smallest baby ever born in Germany and the youngest to survive. She was just 10.2 inches long and weighed little more than a packet of butter when she arrived in the 25th week of her mother’s pregnancy.
