A sandwich bag has saved a UK baby girl’s life after she was born three months early.

Twenty-nine-year-old Rhiannon Shades was terrified when she went into labour at 24 weeks pregnant.

After her baby, Emily, was born naturally still in her amniotic sac she placed into a sandwich bag to keep her warm and safe.

“She was placed into a tiny plastic bag to keep her warm as her skin was so thin she couldn’t stabilise her own temperature”, Shades told Express.

Emily was just 560 grams when she was born.
