Sofia Viktoria Birina could possibly be Scotland’s youngest surviving premature baby after she was born at just 22 weeks on October 2. Doctors gave her only a 10% chance of surviving the birth, according to The Mirror, and even less of a chance of survival if she was born alive. However, the one-pound, one-ounce baby overcame the obstacles and is now home with her mother Egija and father Inars.
“Everything was fine at the twenty-week scan,” said Egija. “Then just over a week later, I felt pain so I went into hospital and was told that I was already dilated and had to go into labour.”
