Smallest Baby – level 1

07-06-19 15:00

A woman is pregnant. Her baby is 23 weeks old. That is about 6 months old.

The mother does not feel well. She goes to hospital. She has preeclampsia. The baby must be born very early. The baby is not ready to leave her mother’s body. Doctors say that the baby will not live.

However, the baby girl lives. She is six months old now. A nurse says that all nurses help the premature babies. The babies have to be very strong to live.

The mother says that her baby is the smallest baby. She is her baby.

Difficult words: preeclampsia (a serious problem that pregnant women sometimes have), will (in the future), premature baby (a baby born early).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
