Miracle Baby Brought back to Life by Mothers Cuddle

A mother has nursed her baby back to life by cuddling him. The mother refused to give up on her baby even though doctors had told her that he baby would have no chance of surviving. The mother refused to give up and began cuddling her baby which miraculously brought him back to life.

Katie Ogg gave birth to twins in a hospital in Australia. The babies were delivered at just 27 weeks and although Katie’s baby girl was delivered perfectly fine and was healthy, the other twin was not breathing. Medical staff tried to resuscitate the baby for more than 20 minutes before finally telling the mother that there was nothing they could do to save her baby. The mother refused to give up ion her baby so quick however and she began to cuddle him.

The mother held the baby close to her chest for hours as she refused to give up on him. The baby gasped for air every so often buy the doctors said that was just a reflex action. After around 2 hours, the baby began to show signs of life and is now a healthy 5 month old baby.

    >Inspiring! They say that in orphanages, babies that get fed the same amount as some other babies don't gain as much eight as babies that are pikced up and cuddled 🙂 All the more inspiration to cuddle my little girl!

    >Yeah, it's pretty amazing isn't it! I can understand why the medical profession has an issue with it – it's just something that is so hard to explain how it could possibly work – but it does!
