MIAMI (WFSB) -

A baby that was shot while still inside her mother's womb has been released from a Miami hospital.

Baby Skyler's mother was outside a convenience store on Dec. 9 when she was shot in the head and stomach. According to reports, a bullet hit Skyler's arm while she was still inside her mother's womb, and doctors at the Miami hospital were forced to deliver her more than a month prematurely.

The mother is still recovering inside the hospital and still hasn't met her miracle daughter.

Hospital officials said Skyler will have to wear a cast on her arm for a few weeks, but is expected to fully recover from her injuries.
