This Mother was Awakened From a Coma by Her Newborn Baby

Miracles happen every day, and for the Cawley family, their miracle came thanks to their newborn daughter. When Shelly Cawley underwent an emergency c-section, a blood clot sent her into a coma — but she woke up, thanks to her daughter.

A newborn baby has awakened her mother who was in coma. For Shelly and Jeremy Cawley of North Carolina, what should have been one of the happiest moments of their lives took a near fatal turn.

Shelly had to go in for an emergency c-section, but during the surgery, a blood clot broke in Shelly’s leg, sending her into a coma.

“I was a mess. I was numb. I didn’t know what to think anymore,” said Jeremy.

The couple’s newborn daughter, Rylan, was alive and healthy but doctors told Jeremy that his wife just wasn’t waking up.

The doctors explained to him that they put Shelly on the ‘last chance’ ventilator. They told Jeremy that they tried all the medicine and machines they had, but were not seeing any progress.

Nurses decided to try connecting mother and daughter through their skin by placing Rylan on her mother’s chest. Jeremy says the bond for Ryland was instant, and she fell right asleep on her mom. She was so content the doctors had to make her cry so that Shelly would hear her baby and wake up from a coma.

“They saw a spike in my vitals when she did cry. They think that I hearing her subconsciously gave my body and my subconscious a reason to fight,” says Shelly.

Shelly says she believes that mother/daughter bond is what made her fight to stay alive.

“I’m still here because of her, and I just can’t wait to tell her that. I can’t wait to tell her that she saved my life,” she added.

The bond between a mother and her baby is one of the strongest human bonds that can be forged. And for this family, it was lifesaving.
