Baby born at 27 weeks, saved, by a sandwich bag

A premature baby who was smaller than her mother's hand has survived being born 13 weeks early after quick-thinking medics saved her life with a sandwich bag. 

Orla-May Rospo-Hughes weighed just one pound when she was born last month after just 27 weeks of pregnancy.

Mother Emily had to undergo an emergency Caesarean section after being diagnosed with placenta insufficiency. 

The baby is now thriving after doctors saved her life by placing her in a sandwich bag to help regulate her body temperature after she was born.  

Orla-May is still in an incubator and is not yet as long as a PPE glove, but medics say she is now doing very well.
