Baby Wakes From Coma At Mother's Touch

Charlotte Cheshire was distraught when her newborn baby Adam refused to eat, but once she took him to the hospital, things only got worse.

Adam collapsed and began having seizures. He had to be put on a ventilator to breathe. Doctors eventually induced a coma to protect the child.

Adam was diagnosed with a brain infection called Group B Strep Meningitis. Charlotte says:

"Group B Strep is very common in the United Kingdom with 1-in-4 women carriers. It can be quickly and easily detected with a swab test between 35 to 37 weeks of pregnancy and treated with antibiotics during labor but the National Health Service currently don't test for it."

With Adam languishing in a coma due to this preventable condition, Charlotte did the only thing a mother could. She cuddled her baby.

Miraculously, at his mother's hug, Adam awoke from the coma!

Aside from some permanent hearing damage, Adam was given a clean bill of health and sent home with Mom shortly after.

Charlotte has barely let her son out of her arms since, practicing "kangaroo care", where the mother acts as an incubator for the newborn baby.

We're not surprised- if you had magic mom hugging powers, would you ever let go?
