Learning the news that they are expecting a baby is something many couples dream of, especially if they had struggled conceiving for a long time.
A coupe from Australia, Kate Ogg and David were over the moon when they were told they would become parents after years of trying.
Their joy was doubled when they spotted two babies during the ultrasound.
However, twins pregnancies can be complicated at times, so Kate had to give birth to her two bundles of joy prematurely. Sadly, baby boy Jamie was declared dead soon after he was welcomed into the world. Or, at least doctors thought so.
Baby Emily was perfectly healthy, but neither Kate nor David would accept that Jamie didn’t make it.
They asked from the doctors to spend some time with him before saying the final goodbye.
The motionless tiny body broke the parents’ hearts, but they never stopped fighting for his life.
“I saw him gasp but the doctor said it was no use. I took Jamie off the doctor, asked everyone to leave. He was cold and I just wanted him to be warm,” Kate told The Daily Mail.
Both Kate and David crawled into the bed with their son and had him close to their skin.
They spoke to him, sang him songs, and told him how much they loved him.
Sweet Jamie would gasp every now and then, but the medical staff told the parents that it was just his reflexes and that they shouldn’t expect a miracle.
But, a miracle did happen. After the skin-to-skin contact that lasted for a couple of hours, Jamie was there, he started breathing on his own. He was alive!
Needless to say, the doctors were left in complete shock, but the parents knew their love was so strong that it helped their little one live.
David said, “Luckily I’ve got a very strong, very smart wife. She instinctively did what she did. If she hadn’t done that, Jamie probably wouldn’t be here.”
The happy parents were able to leave the hospital they way it should always be, with their both children in their arms.
Now, after 9 years, Emily and Jamie are perfectly healthy children. Doctors feared that what happened at birth could affect Jamie’s life, but they were wrong again.
