Jazeel Hlope was born premature at 25 weeks on June 21 this year. This was three months before her due date because her mother, Helen Sauls, experienced pregnancy-induced hypertension.

Doctors at the Netcare Clinton Hospital in Alberton dubbed her "Wonder Woman" because she defied the odds during her 150 days special care.

A happy Sauls said in an interview:

"I am very excited about the prospect of taking my baby home‚ but obviously we do not want to rush. She has been in hospital for nearly 150 days and has gained a lot of weight and strength in that time. Jazeel now weighs just over 2.2kg and now drinks the whole bottle when I feed her."

Nurses made her a special "Wonder Woman" costume that has the words "Littlest Miracle" written on it.
