A BABY who was declared dead inside of his mother's womb is being called a miracle.
Noah Ignacio Guzman was born at Mount Sinai Hospital, Chicago, on Thanksgiving Day, ABC7 reported. Dr Kimberly Sampson, of Sinai Medical Group, said: "It's a miracle - you can't say anything other than that." The baby was not alive when his mother Jocelyn Robinson and father Ignacio Guzman arrived in an ambulance at Mt. Sinai Hospital. Noah's mother was suffering severe complications. "I was scared... I really, really was," said Robinson. Doctors immediately did an ultrasound. "I had to sort of be very honest with her and say: we don't have a heartbeat," said Dr Sampson. She called a second doctor. "Another doctor came in and said, 'I'm sorry, your baby passed. We can't find the heartbeat.'"
Mr Guzman said when he was told the awful news, he began to cry. The medical team sought to save Ms Robinson. The placenta had blocked her cervix - a condition called placenta previa. Doctors began surgery when Dr Sampson noticed the baby gasp. "The baby did it again, and as quickly as we could possibly - I almost felt like I was throwing the baby at the nurse - like, quick, the team just responded immediately," said Dr Sampson. Noah, weighing 2.2kg, is now in intensive care. But he is alive. "They told me he was alive, so it was wonderful - you know, everybody's happy, everybody's crying now, because it was life," said Mr Guzman.
