'Miracle' baby weighing just 1lb 1oz at birth allowed to go home

A "miracle" baby weighing just 1lb 1oz at birth has finally been allowed to go home.

Baby Hallie was born to parents Robyn Bryant and James Dury in Cardiff almost three months ago.

Mum Robyn was just 28 weeks pregnant when she was told that she would have to deliver her child.

BBC reports that the couple were told to expect the worst. Doctor told the parents that Hallie had developed a genetic condition that caused her limbs to grow shorter than they should have.

However, when she was born it became apparent that this was not the case. Rather, the placenta had not be providing Hallie with the oxygen she needed to survive.

When she was born in October, Hallie weighed just over 1lb. Now, having returned home with her parents for the first time, the baby girl weighs 3lbs 3oz.

Mum Robyn said that the 11 weeks Hallie was in hospital were incredibly tough, but that watching her daughter grow has been "a miracle."
