Radiolab podcast: 23 Weeks 6 Days.

“When Kelley Benham and her husband Tom French finally got pregnant, after many attempts and a good deal of technological help, everything was perfect. Until it wasn’t. Their story raises questions that, until recently, no parent had to face… and that are still nearly impossible to answer.”

There’s also an epsiode with an Update: 23 Weeks 6 Days.

Kelley Benham, the mother, also wrote a series of gripping articles for the Tampa Bay Times about her experience: Never let go. “She came four months early, straining the limits of what is possible and what is right.”

The parents have written a book about their experiences that will be released on September 13, 2016.
