Baby Lennox survives after being born at just 24 weeks


A mother’s intuition is always right-on. At least that was the case for Melbourne, Australia resident Lilly Munro, who—in her 24th week of pregnancy—couldn’t shake the feeling that something was wrong with her unborn son, Lennox.

Accompanied by her fiancé, Brodie Moles, she hurried over to the hospital. Not long after they walked through the doors, she received word that something was seriously wrong…and they had to act fast.

After sensing that something was wrong with her pregnancy, Lilly Munro and her fiancé Brodie Moles were told by doctors that their unborn son, Lennox, had a heart complication—and they had to induce birth immediately.

She was only 24 weeks along, so their son’s chances of survival were about 50/50. He only weighed about 1.8 pounds!

As part of his treatment, Baby Lennox had to be placed in a sort of plastic bag that would increase his chances of survival. It would prevent his body temperature from falling too low.

Eventually he was hooked up to tubes and hoses, which was difficult for the new parents to watch.

Ultimately, Lennox had to be in the hospital for 111 days!

Lilly had to give up her job so that she could stay at the hospital with Lennox, and Brodie took over responsibilities at home, including helping to care for Lilly’s three other children. In the end, it was worth it. Both parents cherished every moment with their newborn son.

Thanks to the many wonderful doctors and nurses, whom Lilly called “above and beyond,” Lennox was able to come home!

Now, he weighs nearly nine pounds and is doing very well. The family couldn’t be happier!

This must have been such a difficult time for Lilly, Brodie, and their “miracle baby” Lennox. Still, it’s remarkable just how far along he’s come since being born prematurely.
