One of the smallest surviving babies born in North Carolina is going home with her family.

E’Layah Pegues was delivered via C-section in September at just 24-weeks old.

She weighed just 10 ounces, less than what a can of Coke weighs.

“Even our equipment, even our diapers that we have for our smallest babies were too big for her. So, we had to be very creative in taking care of her,” said Dr. Jennifer Clark-Pounder.

E’Layah is now 5 pounds 8 ounces. Her mother says her daughter is alert and a fighter.
