Miracle Thanksgiving Baby Takes a Breath After No Heartbeat Found
One Chicago couple has something very special thing to be thankful for this year: their son Noah Ignacio Guzman. Jocelyn Robinson and the baby’s father, Ignacio Guzman rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital in the wee hours of Thanksgiving morning, when Jocelyn began experiencing severe complications with her pregnancy, reports ABC 7.
When an emergency ultrasound failed to find a heartbeat, the couple was given the tragic news that Jocelyn’s baby had passed away. Ignacio says of the moment he heard his son was dead, “I just started crying.”
However, the ordeal was not over, as Jocelyn, too, was in danger. Suffering from placenta previa, a condition in which the placenta blocks the cervix, she was taken into surgery when when Dr. Kimberly Sampson noticed the baby gasp. The doctor says, “The baby did it again, and […] the team just responded immediately.”
Dr. Sampson and team’s quick reflexes paid off. Noah was born at 3:12 a.m. weighing 4 pounds, 13 ounces — and while he will spend some time in intensive care, he and mama Jocelyn are very much alive!
Jocelyn is overjoyed at her son’s miraculous beginning, saying, “I’m just very, very, blessed that me and my son were able to come out of this situation alive.” Ignacio recalls the miracle moment his son took his first breath: “Everybody’s happy, everybody’s crying now, because it was life.” Excuse us while we sob tears of relief for Jocelyn, Ignacio and little Noah.
