Mum 'brings dead baby back to life'

Mum 'brings dead baby back to life'

An Australian mom's cuddles apparently brought her premature baby to life after doctors had declared him dead.

Kate Ogg gave birth to twins, Jamie and Emily, in 2010, but doctors told her only Emily survived.

She asked to hold Jamie and ordered her husband, David, to join her shirtless in bed, hoping to give their boy some warmth.

That is when Jamie reportedly started moving.

"If we had let the doctor walk out of the room with him, Jamie would have been dead," she said.

The Queensland couple struggled to conceive for years before they finally became pregnant with the twins. Ogg went into labor just six months into her pregnancy and gave birth on March 25, 2010 — first to Jamie and Emily two minutes later.

Ogg said: "They were both born in their sac, but Jamie didn't make a noise when they tore it open. Emily let out a big wail."

Jamie's heart rate and breathing slowed, but after 20 minutes of struggling to improve the newborn's vitals, doctors gave up and told the new parents that Jamie wasn't going to make it, she said.



The doctors gave the devastated couple Jamie for a goodbye cuddle.

"We had tried for years to have kids and I felt so guilty. I just wanted to cuddle him. I unwrapped him and ordered my husband to take his shirt off and climb into the bed," she said. "He was cold and I just wanted him to be warm."

The couple told Jamie about his sister and described his extended family to him: "We were trying to entice him to stay."

With enough skin time, Jamie's condition started to improve, Ogg said.

"He suddenly gasped," she said. "Then he opened his eyes. He was breathing and grabbing Dave's finger.

Today, the twins are preparing to celebrate their fifth birthday later this month. They have a little brother named Charlie, too.

Jamie hasn't had a single health problem since birth. The parents only recently told the twins about how Jamie almost died at birth. Emily was overcome with emotion and would not stop hugging her brother, Ogg said.

"It's absolutely astounding. This whole experience makes you cherish them more," Kate said.
