Going through birth complications is one of the hardest things young mothers can be faced with. A young mother whose child was born prematurely knows exactly how difficult it is to watch your little one struggle after spending so many months protecting them in your belly.

Refilwe Emily Setshedi recently took to Facebook's ImStaying to share in detail how her little baby was born at only 24 weeks, leaving many doctors doubtful that she would live to more than a few weeks.

"Many doctors told me that she would never be normal or live, the list was endless. Her tiny body wasn't fully developed. When I first saw her, she could fit inside my hands with a tiny heartbeat because God was still creating her.

"I was heartbroken and torn apart, Prayer was my weapon. Kaylah was born at 24 weeks and 2 days, weighing 795 grams due to PPROM. She was a micro premature."

She then explained how despite popular belief, the little one started gaining weight and growing gradually. After a few months of intensive care and a lot of prayers, little Kaye and her mommy were able to go home together.

The stressed-out mom said in the heartbreaking post:

"She dropped to 700 when she was infected with Klebsiella pneumoniae. She recovered and was isolated for three months until we were discharged, weighing only 1.56 kg. it was such a huge milestone for us.
