Sunday April 8: The price of life

Published: 3:10PM Thursday April 05, 2012 Source: Sunday

The price of life
They are the babies born in the 23rd week of pregnancy and they exist on the very edge of life.

They are born  so prematurely their survival stretches science to the limit. Is it medicine at its most pioneering and brilliant, or is it pushing the limits of nature too far?

Is it always right to keep these babies alive?

Sunday has unprecedented access to an intensive care neo-natal unit to follow these babies in their struggle to survive.
