Delivered at 22 weeks in October, she's now going home and doctors say none of her complications will cause long-term problems.

Amazing baby, amazing doctors, amazing story.

The mother lied about the baby's age to get doctors to treat her, according to a local TV station:

The medical standard is not even to resuscitate a 22-week baby, so when Sonja Taylor knew she was going into labor in October after just 19 weeks, she lied about the baby's term.

Doctors worked to delay the birth, but nine days later, they had no choice but to perform an emergency C-section, thinking they were delivering a 23-week baby.
