Kaio Doxey on his mother Jessica's chest. See SWNS story SWFHpregnancy. A tiny baby born a week before the abortion limit and weight less than a POUND has defied the odds to survive and thrive. Jessica Doxey, 30, was rushed to hospital when she was just 23 weeks pregnant, and was diagnosed with life threatening blood condition pre-eclampsia. An emergency c-section was performed to save the mum who was warned her tiny son was unlikely to survive. He was born so early, she said doctors asked her if she wanted them to save her son.
