Deaf baby first to undergo surgery for hearing loss

12th October 2012

A deaf baby will become one of the youngest children in the country to undergo cochlear implant surgery to improve her hearing.

Paige Evans, who is seven months old, was born deaf after her mother contracted the group B streptococcus infection. Her mother told the Daily Mail: "We are just waiting for a date. I want really want Paige to be able to hear us. It was horrible to think she may never hear us say how much we love her. She also doesn’t respond as much as other babies, which does upset me."
