Preemie baby, Amillia, is believed to be the first baby to survive after being born less than 22 weeks gestation.  Amillia was born at the Baptist Children's Hospital in Miami at just 284 grams (10 ounces), an age and weight usually expected to have no chance of survival.  Although Amillia has suffered from respiratory problems, a mild brain haemorrhage, and some digestive difficulties doctors have given her an excellent prognosis.  As with many mothers of premature infants, Amillia's mom wasn't able to hold her baby for more than 6 weeks after she was born.  Amillia spent more than 4 months in the hospitals neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and went home with asthma medication and extra oxygen.
