‘Miracle Baby’ Born Weighing Just 1 Pound Goes Home After 104 Days in the Hospital

A premature baby girl born 13 weeks early, and weighing only 1 pound was sent home this week after spending the first 104 days of her life in a New York hospital.

Appropriately known as the “miracle baby,” Hannah Bella Rodriguez is now 5 pounds 5 ounces and growing stronger everyday. After intense evaluation and months of life-saving treatments, doctors cleared Hannah to finally go home.

When she was discharged this past Tuesday, hospital staff at the Nassau University Medical Center celebrated the miracle baby with a special ceremony.

Hannah’s mother, Jennifer Pena de Mena, was first hospitalized in June due to complications with her pregnancy. Doctors monitored her for a few weeks before deciding to deliver Hannah in July after her heart rate began to decline.
