A Mum Wakes From Coma By Sound Of Her Baby
Most mums would do anything to keep their kids quiet, but US mum, Shelly, owes her life to the cries of her baby girl - the sound of little Rylan woke her from a coma.
After giving birth via emergency C-section, Shelly suffered a blood clot breaking loose mid-surgery, sending her into a coma. After Shelly remained unconscious for a number hours, nurse, Ashley Manus, decided to place the little newborn on her mum for skin-to-skin contact. Long thought to be beneficial for the baby, Manus figured it might also help the mother. She was right: Rylan cried, as babies do, and amazingly Shelly had a spike in her vitals.
Husband and new-dad, Jeremy, told Buzzfeed News that this spike stabilsed his wife and she woke up a few days later.
“I remember staring at Rylan’s face and thinking she is the most beautiful baby in the world,” Shelly told Buzzfeed.“I know every mum feels that way but I felt like we had a special connection because of everything that had happened.”
But, we think Shelly might be right...
