What a harrowing juxtaposition of realities in the same sentence. We’re told that Emily Cressey is believed to be Britain’s youngest surviving birth.

“Emily weighed 535g (1lb 3oz) when she was born on February 27, and could legally have been aborted,” reports Metro.co.uk.

When she was able to hold her for the first time on Mother’s Day (March 30), Emily’s mother Claire said it was “the best moment of my life.”.

And Emily is doing well at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, weighing in at 736g (1lb 10oz).

Ms. Cressey said Emily is so tiny she fits in the palm of her hand.

“I cried before the nurse brought her out, it was so emotional, I’ve never experienced anything like it before.

“She snuggled up to my chest and fell asleep.”
