Doctors predicted premature twins had zero chance of survival, but the mom hoped for a miracle attesting, “I prayed and prayed for them to make it.” And now both babies are thriving and inspiring the world!
Premature Babies Zero Chance Of Survival
Jade and her husband, Steve, had spent 11 years trying to get pregnant. However, in those years, the couple suffered an ectopic pregnancy and eight cycles of IVF, stated the report. Then finally, on Oct. 26 last year, baby Harley and Harry Crane were born. However, they were born premature. At 22 weeks and five days gestation, the doctors told them the babies wouldn’t survive, reported the Mirror.
The devastating news distressed Jade and her husband Steve after everything they’d been through for many years. But the mom never gave up hope and trusted God. She turned to prayer and refused to believe what the doctors told them.
Turning To God
“I had a sense of peace. And I prayed and prayed for them to make it, for them to cry to show signs of life, which they did,” she revealed in an interview with BBC.
Further, Jade went on recalling to Mirror, “When Harley let out the smallest of cries, the room went mad. And they suddenly offered life-saving treatment. It felt amazing to hear them cry, though I was still scared.”
And soon, the twins defied all the fatal odds and miraculously survived the ordeal. They are now dubbed as “the earliest-born babies to survive” in the country, according to Faithwire.
“They’ll go down in medical history,” Jade remarked. “I’m sure they’ll have a ward named after them because everyone is just amazed by them!”
Today, the little twins are 16 weeks old. And according to the report, they might be released soon from the hospital because of their now healthy condition, contrary to the early prediction.
In a Facebook post from Nottingham University Hospitals, they wrote, “The twins — born weighing 500g and the size of a Mars Bar — had not been expected to survive.”
They also added, “Believed to be Britain’s youngest surviving premature twins, Harley and Harry continue to amaze doctors and nurses at QMC as they go from strength to strength.”
In an article from Daily Mail, “babies born at 22 weeks are not classed as legally viable and medical intervention is sometimes not offered.” That is why Harley and Harry surprised the world with their survival. And the Mirror deems it a “medical miracle.”
