  • No, neither can a baby that is 23 weeks without intensive interventions.

  • I think the world record is like 23 weeks.... so, no way.

  • NO

  • There is no way. My son was stillborn at 20 weeks (deceased before I delivered him) and his body wasn't even stable. I don't really know how to explain that, but his bones were not hardened yet, and his skin was still transparent. A baby at 13 weeks isn't even in the form of a baby yet- limbs and such.

  • no, unfortunately they cannot. that's why they need to stay in your body for 9 months, or as long as possible. even babies born 2 weeks early have sometimes had lung or breathing issues.

  • No. The earliest gestation baby ever to have survived was 23 weeks...and 'survived' is the wrong word: hooked up to life support, permanently blind and with multiple organ (including brain) damage is not 'survived' in my view. It is unethical experimentation done by unhinged doctors who make Mengele look principled. How they think they have consent to perform this stuff is beyond me. Why they think it's better than death is a mystery.
