smallest baby at birth Kwek Yu Xuan

This miracle baby beat the odds, and she is officially known around the world as the smallest baby at birth. Who says hope doesn't come in tiny packages? Weighing less than a pound, the world's smallest baby at birth defies all odds as a ‘ray of hope.'

Kwek Yu Xuan is the world's tiniest fighter, weighing a mere 7.5 ounces at birth. Most babies weigh six to ten pounds the day they come into the world and are usually born after 40 weeks.

But that wasn't the case for this sweet little girl. Yu Xuan was born premature at 25 weeks.

Tiny Fighter Offers ‘Ray Of Hope Amid Turmoil’

The hospital didn't have any hope that she would survive. Doctors prepared her parents Kwek Wee Liang and Wong Mei Ling to say goodbye as they brought their baby girl into this world by c-section.

Based on her weight at the time of delivery, Yu Xuan is believed to be the world’s smallest baby at birth. Weighing less than an apple or a softball, she had less than a 50 percent chance of survival.

But the hospital staff didn't bank on God's plans for this sweet little girl! With God watching over her-she proved every life is precious and she proved miracles happen. The hospital staff named her "a ray of hope amid turmoil."

“Against the odds, with health complications present at birth, she has inspired people around her with her perseverance and growth,” the hospital stated. “We are happy for the little fighter and her family, and proud of the care provided by our team," they added. In a Facebook post they wish her the best, “Our best wishes to Little Yu Xuan as she continues to grow, thrive and beat the odds every day.”
