THE MUM of a premature baby branded a ‘little miracle’ has told the Advertiser she didn’t think her daughter would survive when she was born 15 weeks early.
Battling Amy Elizabeth Caulton weighed only 1lb 7oz when she was born and mum Ruth Baker this week said she never imagined that seven months later she would be holding her little daughter in her arms at the family’s Dovedale Circle home in Cotmanhay.

Ruth said: “When I went into labour 15 weeks early I never thought she’d make it and then when I saw her for the first time I never imagined she’d survive.
