Baby Abigail finally goes home
Baby Abigail has finally gone home after being born at a mere 422g – the same weight as a large tin of tuna.
While most babies born so small don’t survive, Abigail has a bright future thanks to the doctors and researchers at the Monash Health Translation Precinct (MHTP).
Abigail was born with a condition known as fetal growth restriction. She now weighs a healthy 3.5kg, and having spent all of her life so far at the Monash Children’s Hospital her parents were over the moon to finally take their first child home with them.
