Baby Robyn, the tiniest baby to be born in Wales, is finally set to leave the hospital after spending seven months in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Born at a mere 11 ounces at just 23 weeks, Robyn’s journey has been nothing short of miraculous.
Her parents, Chantelle, 33, and Daniel, 37, described their daughter as a “tiny warrior.”
The moment Robyn was born, she was immediately placed in an incubator and delicately intubated. To ensure her fragile body stayed warm and protected, she was even nestled in a tiny sandwich bag, to keep her vital organs warm while she grew.

While Robyn’s parents were cautious about taking her out of the incubator to prevent potential infections, they found solace in the small gestures of connection.
“We tried to limit our times of her coming out of the incubator. But every day we would put our hands in and let her know we were there, talked to her and she would grab your finger. It was lovely,” explained her dad.
