At times, a premature baby does not need to be connected to 10 different devices to be granted the opportunity to live.

When Carolyn Isbister placed her 20oz infant on her torso for an embrace, she believed it would be the single opportunity to hold her. Doctors had informed the parents that Rachel just had a few minutes to live

since her heart was pounding once each ten seconds and could not breathe. 


Isbister recalls: I did not wish for her to pass on being cold. Therefore, I picked her up out of her coverlet and placed her next to my skin to give her warmth. Her feet were very cold.

It was the single embrace I was going to have; hence, I desired to recall the moment.” After that, something amazing ensued. The heat of her mother’s skin helped Rachael’s heart to beat well, which permitted her to take small gasps of her own. Mother’s last skin to skin cuddle saves her 20 oz baby

It was unbelievable. She produced a small cry. 

The doctors entered and held there was still no expectation – however, I was not releasing her. We had her sanctified by the hospital priest, and hanged around for her to die. However, she still hung on. Then astonishingly, the pink shade started to come back to her cheeks. She factually was changing from gray to pink in front of our eyes, and she started to heat up as well.

The distressing part is that after the infant was born, medical doctors took one glance at her and whispered ‘no’. They did not even attempt to assist her with her inhalation since they alleged it would only delay her dying. Everybody simply quit on her,” her mom recalled.

At 5 weeks, the ventilator was removed from her and she started breastfeeding by herself. At 4 months, Rachel left with her father and mother, weighing 8lbs – as good as any other strong newborn.
