Premature baby born 28 Weeks put in Tesco plastic,the reason why will make you cry

Pink, tiny and birdlike, doctors did not expect newborn Pixie Griffiths-Grant to survive longer than an hour. 

Delivered three months premature by Caesarean section, she was lighter than half a bag of sugar and smaller than her mother's hand.

 

As she was rushed to intensive care, her parents faced the devastating prospect she may not make it.

But doctors saved her life by immediately bundling her into put her into a Tesco sandwich bag, which kept her warm and mimicked the conditions of her mother's womb.

After overcoming infections, operations, and blood transfusions, Pixie, now five months old, is at home with her family, and is thriving.

Pixie's mother Sharon Grant, 37, said: 'As soon as she was born, they gave her a little hat and put her straight into the bag to keep her body temperature up.

'After that they wrapped her in bubble wrap and got her straight to intensive care.

'It was so random that they had her in the Tesco bag - it must have just been what the operating theatre had at the time.'

Mrs Grant, of Goonhavern, Cornwall, was forced to give birth three months early after scans revealed her unborn baby had stopped growing in the womb at just 20 weeks.
