After doctors said they couldn’t find a heartbeat and the baby was lifeless, the mother asked for further evaluation.
a mother UK🇧🇷 Hannah Cole, aged 27, was distraught after hearing from doctors that something was wrong with her pregnancy. Her water broke before 20 weeks and she had to be hospitalized. The day after admission, experts said that they could not recognize an active heartbeat in the uterus, ie Drinks It is lifeless.
Hannah must undergo an induction procedure to help her body expel her lifeless son. But, she refused to believe her ears.
The mother persisted and asked the doctors to do a fresh assessment before inducing. The doctors agreed, and a new scan found a heartbeat.
Little Oakley was born on October 30 weighing 780 grams, despite being extremely premature at 24 weeks and 3 days of gestation.
Oakley’s age still calls for care. “It’s stressful, with ups and downs,” the mother explained. “He was in the ICU. He was absolutely brilliant. I’m relieved. It’s been a rollercoaster ride. He’s my Christmas miracle,” Hannah declares.
With only 8 days to live, he underwent a premature first operation after being diagnosed with persistent necrotizing enterocolitis, a condition in which tissue of the intestine becomes inflamed and dies. He had to have an ostomy bag placed (which collects the contents of the stool) and new surgeries are already planned for next year. He still needed mechanical ventilation, but now he can breathe unaided, which is a win.
“We hope to bring him home in a few months,” said the mother. “I feel a little lost now that he’s not home,” she says. The boy will remain in the hospital until his expected delivery on February 9, 2023.
According to the Daily Mail newspaper, hospital bosses apologized to the family for the “distress and worry caused”. “We would like to send our congratulations to our mother and family on the birth of Oakley and wish her the best during her long childbirth journey,” the hospital said in a statement.
In October, Sarah Hollins, director of midwifery at Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, said: “On behalf of the trust, I would like to offer my sincere apologies for the distress and anxiety you have experienced during your current pregnancy.”
