Mother’s Cuddling Brings Baby ‘Back From Dead’ …but how?

A SMILING KATE HOLDS JAMIE AFTER IT BECOMES CLEAR THAT HER SON IS GOING TO SURVIVE

 

Baby Jamie Ogg showed no signs of life when he was delivered at just 27 weeks gestation at a hospital in Sydney. Doctors said they had lost him and he was given to his mother Kate who gently unwrapped his blankets and placed him on her chest so she and her husband David could say their goodbyes.

Two hours of close cuddling and being spoken to by Kate and David, Jamie somehow began to gasp. Doctors initially said this was a ‘reflex’ but he began gasping more often and then opened his eyes.

In most cases, babies are rushed off to intensive care if there is a serious problem during the birth.

But the ‘kangaroo care’ technique, named after the way kangaroos hold their young in a pouch next to their bodies, allows the mother to act as a human incubator to keep babies warm, stimulated and fed.

Pre-term and low birth-weight babies treated with the skin-to-skin method have also been shown to have lower infection rates, less severe illness, improved sleep patterns and are at reduced risk of hypothermia.

With Jamie sleeping soundly in her arms and showing no outward sign of his dramatic start in life, Kate said: “I thought, “Oh my God, what’s going on?” A short time later he opened his eyes. It was a miracle.

The baby’s survival has baffled doctors. David, speaking to the Australian TV show Today Tonight, said: “Luckily, I’ve got a very strong, very smart wife.

“She instinctively did what she did. If she hadn’t have done that, then Jamie probably wouldn’t be here.”

But however baffling, there is no question that the answer to this mystery is to be found in science. The human body is itself electric in nature.

Everything we do is controlled and enabled by electrical signals running through our bodies. As we learned in intro physics, everything is made up of atoms, and atoms are made up of protons, neutrons and electrons. Protons have a positive charge, neutrons have a neutral charge, and electrons have a negative charge. When these charges are out of balance, an atom becomes either positively or negatively charged. The switch between one type of charge and the other allows electrons to flow from one atom to another. This flow of electrons, or a negative charge, is what we call electricity. Since our bodies are huge masses of atoms, we can generate electricity.

When we talk about the nervous system sending “signals” to the brain, or synapses “firing,” or the brain telling our hands to contract around a door handle, what we’re talking about is electricity carrying messages between point A and point B. Except in our bodies, electrons aren’t flowing along a wire; instead, an electrical charge is jumping from one cell to the next until it reaches its destination. The heart, as well, produces electricity.

In the book A Scientific Foundation Towards a Complete Theory of Qi, Nei Kung and “Magic”, author Hern Heng proposes a theory that seemingly “supernatural” feats found amongst Buddhist lamas, such as those studied at Harvard University which have found that meditation can produce tremendous heating in freezing temperatures, can be explained by this “bioelectricity” being stored in the body as a “capacitor” of sorts. Might it be possible that the mother’s body “jump started” the baby? Might her own electric current, generated in part by her own beating heart, have slowly brought the baby back to life through the transfer of cellular charge?

Right now we can only speculate. It is not enough to just shrug reports like these off when they conflict with prevailing paradigms of how life works. But more and more reputable scientists and institutions are beginning to investigate questions like these. Hopefully soon we will start to get answers of “how” and “why”.
