Beatrix's father Lloyd Richards said: "We didn't realise how lucky we were - the odds were stacked against her from the off. Miraculously she's pulled through."
A baby born in Harlow in Essex has survived despite not breathing for the first 23 minutes of her life.
Beatrix Richards had to be resuscitated, but just at the moment when guidelines recommend resuscitation ends, the consultant at the Princess Alexandra hospital, decided to give it one more go.
She started to breathe and now 8 weeks old is back home in Bishop's Stortford.
She still has a tiny bleed on her brain, caused by the lack of oxygen when she was born, the long-term implications of which are unknown, but the outlook is very good.
The family are now fundraising for both the Princess Alexandra hospital in Essex and St Thomas's Hospital in London where she was transferred to at just a few hours old.

The East of England Ambulance Service has apologised for a mix-up which meant that an ambulance was sent to the wrong address as a teenage air cadet lay struggling to breathe from an asthma attack.
An ambulance was sent to RAF Wyton instead of RAF Brampton, near Huntingdon, last June.
14-year-old Elouise Keeling eventually died from the attack.
Today, a coroner concluded that earlier intervention was unlikely to have made a difference, but he also said that the ambulance service had been "found wanting".
"We want to start by saying sorry, in this case it took us too long to get an ambulance to Elouise," John Martin, from the East of England Ambulance Service, told ITV News Anglia.
"The verdict that the coroner has come up with is that although the postcodes were wrong, there wasn't actually any difference in the treatment that occurred on scene, and tragically, we wouldn't have made a difference.
"However, as an organisation, we don't want the mix-up to happen again and we've put actions into place to ensure that we don't just rely on postcodes when it comes to finding patients."
