Premature baby born 13 weeks early survives after medics put her in a sandwich bag

A PREMATURE baby smaller than her mum’s hand has survived being born 13 weeks early after medics put her in a sandwich bag.

Orla-May weighed just 1lb when she was born last month — with mum Emily Rospo and partner Samantha Hughes told the tot may not live.

But she is now doing well after docs regulated her temperature using the plastic bag.

Emily said: “We were told multiple times to prepare for the worst.

“We were trying for a baby for three years and had used IVF, so to be told this was devastating.”

Emily, 30, of Hitchin, Herts, had to have an emergency caesarean on January 28 at Luton and Dunstable Hospital.

She said: “They worked hard to get her breathing and put her into a sandwich bag.

"It was scary.”

Samantha added: “We have a long road ahead.”
