Austin’s mother Helen Douglas went into premature labor. By the time she arrived at the hospital, she was fully dilated, and there wasn’t anything doctors could do to stop the labor.
“We were asked if we wanted medical assistance for him, given how premature he was,” Douglas told the Daily Mail. “I told doctors that if he came out breathing, I wanted them to do everything they could and they did.”
His prognosis was initially not good, but Austin is now being cared for at Leicester Royal Infirmary and has improved enough that doctors hope he can be discharged by his original due date of July 28th.
Austin still has a long way to go, but his life is a testimony to the fact that preborn children are living human beings.
