On the 30th of December 2015 little Rishita was born in a Special Newborn Care Unit (SNCU) in the Nalgonda District Hospital in Telangana. She was the smallest recorded baby born in India, weighing only 650 grams. Only Dr. Yadaiah and the team at the SNCU thought she could survive.
The team at the SNCU monitored Rishita and kept her warm, building her strength, and playing sounds to mimic being in her mother’s womb. Rishita survived because of this treatment. Today she is almost two and full of life. Living happily with her mother and father.
