One of Britain's tiniest ever babies who weighed just 0.76lbs after being born at 24 weeks has finally gone home.

Isabella Evans was given just a one in 20 chance of survival, but now she's beaten the odds and is with her parents Kym Brown and Ryan Evans at their home Bishop's Cleeve, Gloucestershire. 

Six months after her birth, Ms Brown and Mr Evans' 'little fighter' is out of the hospital and doing well, reports the Sun.

Ms Brown told the Sun: 'Realistically she shouldn't be here. There were so many times we could have lost her.

'But she never stops fighting. We love her to bits. She's perfect.'

After being diagnosed with pre-eclampsia, which can be fatal due to fits, Ms Brown was given an emergency c-section.

Isabella, who was born on June 14, was then immediately put into an incubator to help her breathe and wrapped in bubble wrap to keep her warm.


With hands that were smaller than 1p coins, little Isabella was the smallest premature baby born in the UK for 20 years.


During her time in the hospital, she had two major bowel operations as well as laser eye surgery. She came home on December 16.

Even now, at 10 months, she weighs just 9lb, the same as a newborn.  


Ms Brown added: 'It was love at first sight and the protective maternal instinct kicks in. I stayed with her every night she was in hospital.'

The world's smallest surviving baby ever born was 0.59lbs.


He was born via emergency C-section at Keio University Hospital in Tokyo after doctors noticed he was not growing during a 24 week scan and worried his life may be in danger.
