Meet woman 32, born a premature baby now grown to be a specialist doctor

A woman who was born ‘dangerously’ premature has become a doctor, and is now dedicating her career to help save other babies.

Sabina Checkett was born two and a half months early weighing just 2lbs and 10oz and she was small enough to fit in her dad’s hand.

The parents of the now 32-year-old, who arrived in 1986, were told that she had just a 50/50 chance of surviving, and that if she did then would be living with multiple health problems.

Sabina Checkett, who was born two and a half months early, is now a specialist in the neonatal intensive care unit at Evelina London Children’s Hospital.

She told the Mirror, “‘I was just like them all those years ago and now I’m helping to look after them.”
