A premature baby, right after it had been declared dead, brought back to life after his mother cuddled him for 2 hours
Not wanting to let him go, she tearfully cuddled her lifeless son – born at 27 weeks weighing 2lb.
Although baby Jamie’s twin sister Emily had been delivered successfully, doctors had given Mrs Ogg the news all mothers dread – that after 20 minutes of battling to get her son to breathe, they had declared him dead.
Mrs Ogg unwrapped the baby from his blanket and held him against her skin. And then an incredible thing happened.
After two hours of being hugged, touched and spoken to by his mother, the little boy began showing signs of life.
At first, it was just a gasp for air that was dismissed by doctors as a reflex action.
But then the startled mother fed him a little breast milk on her finger and he started breathing normally.
‘I thought, “”Oh my God, what’s going on””,’ said Mrs Ogg.
‘A short time later he opened his eyes. It was a miracle. Then he held out his hand and grabbed my finger.
‘He opened his eyes and moved his head from side to side. The doctor kept shaking his head saying, “”I don’t believe it””.’
‘He started gasping more and more regularly. I thought, “”Oh my God, what’s going on?”” A short time later he opened his eyes. It was a miracle’
In most cases, babies are rushed off to intensive care if there is a serious problem during the birth.”
