During a near-fatal Caesarean section, a young mother fell into a coma, and only woke up five months later. She gave birth to a baby boy but only held him for the first time when she had awakened from her coma.
28-year-old Nur Fadilla from Kota Bharu in Malaysia slipped into a coma during a Caesarean section that almost cost her her life.
Parent24 reported that doctors decided on a C-section on 18 November 2018 after they failed to induce labour 3 times.
During the C-section, Fadilla suffered complications and her heart stopped. Doctors managed to bring her back, but she slipped into a coma.
The woman gave birth to a boy, but since she was in a coma, she did not meet her son until she woke up and he was already 5 months old.
When she was finally able to hold her child, the mom apparently 'cried her eyes out'.
