Arriving last Monday at just 23 weeks of gestation, Berselia Hernandez Chavarri defies odds by breathing on her own inside her incubator. The baby's chances of survival are still being assessed, but it is definitely a good sign that she is already breathing independently.
Borselia surprised doctors at Trujillo, Peru when she was born weighing just 450gms (less than a pound).
Her mom Sonia Chavarri is shown here watching on as she sleeps.
