“After experiencing severe pregnancy complications, Saybie’s mother gave birth via emergency cesarean section at 23 weeks, 3 days gestation in the womb,” the hospital explained.

“Doctors said the preterm birth was necessary after they found that the baby was not gaining weight and her mother’s life was at immediate risk.”

The Tiniest Babies Registry that is maintained by the University of Iowa stated that the baby weighed 7 gram less than the previous record-breaker.
