A Mother’s Love Saves her Preemie

March 15, 2012


Little Jamie Ogg and his twin sister were born prematurely last year in Australia. Jamie weighed a mere two pounds and was not breathing. When doctors told his parents that their son didn’t make it, the mom, Kate, cuddled with his lifeless body for two hours, skin-to-skin, which is referred to as “Kangaroo Care”; a practice used in many hospitals today even for healthy newborns.

After receiving two hours of his mother’s love and warmth, Jamie Ogg embraced life by taking a breath and reaching out for his mommy’s finger.

A miracle!
