Parents Forced to Leave Miracle Preemie Who Died in Arms at NICU, Then Cops Show Up

Born at just 29 weeks with many genetic issues, baby Axel Winch was going to need a miracle in order to survive. Without the necessary equipment to care for him in his hometown, he was flown almost 300 miles away to Children’s Hospital Colorado to be treated in the NICU.

Axel’s parents, Melissa and Adam Winch, stayed with their baby for months in the hospital. Their “mystery baby” baffled doctors who were unable to pinpoint what was wrong with him.

The preemie died numerous times in his parents’ arms, and his nurses saved his life multiple times. Baby Axel proved time and time again that miracles are possible.

So it was naturally heartbreaking when his parents had to return to work so many miles away from him. Melissa works as a police officer, and Adam is a former officer who owns his own business.

“I cried not all the way home, but majority of the way home. It’s terrible,” Melissa said of having to leave her baby in the hospital.

The parents had no idea when — or if — they would get to hold their baby again. That’s when the Aurora Police Department stepped in. An officer had a child being treated at the same Children’s Hospital, and connected with the Winch family.

The Aurora PD wanted to set up a ‘cuddle watch’ for Axel. “I didn’t want him to be alone,” said Sgt. Mike Pitrusu, who runs Aurora PD’s Employee Support and Wellness unit.

Sgt. Pitrusu set up the ‘cuddle watch,’ and had officers sign up for times to go and visit with Axel.

While mom and dad were hard at work or unable to be with him, nearly 20 officers cuddled with the baby. The officers also visited with the family, helped raise money for them, and even opened their homes to them.

Sgt. Pitrusu said it was not only beneficial for Axel, but also for the officers. And the Aurora PD says this is the start of a lifelong friendship with the Winch family.

After months in the hospital, the family experienced yet another miracle. They could finally take Axel home. Now his parents say that Axel always wants to be held — and they gladly oblige.

Although his future remains unclear, the Winch family is grateful that he is happy and healthy. “God bless the Aurora Police Department,” Adam said in a Facebook post after finally being able to bring Axel home. “God answers prayer and performs impossible miracles, now and forever.”

Now it looks like the officers of APD will need a new baby to cuddle and comfort. “We almost need to set up a cuddle watch for Children’s Hospital, just give the opportunity to come in and take care of the little ones,” Sgt. Pitrusu said.

This Is Being Called The Most Ironic Viral Picture Ever. Do You See Why? Look Closer. (Photo)

An Alabama baby was allegedly born holding his mother’s Intrauterine Device — the contraceptive that was supposed to prevent her from getting pregnant. A Facebook picture of the newborn, Dexter Tyler, has been shared over 71,000 times, reports the Daily Mail.

The mother, Lucy Hellein, said: “Dexter was definitely meant to be. His original due date was May 4th and even the doctor said “the force was strong with this one. Although he wasn’t planned, my family and I feel incredibly blessed.”

As explained by Planned Parenthood, an IUD is “a small piece of flexible plastic shaped like a T” which is “inserted into your uterus to prevent pregnancy.” It is “long-term, reversible, and one of the most effective birth control methods out there.”

The FDA has approved five different brands of IUDs: ParaGard, Liletta, Mirena, Skyla, and Kyleena. There are two types of IUDs — copper and hormonal.

Mirena, Lileetta, Skyla and Kyleena are hormonal, using the hormone progestin to prevent pregnancy.

Planned Parenthood explained them on their site:

The hormones in Liletta, Mirena, Skyla, and Kyleena IUDs prevent pregnancy in two ways: 1) they thicken the mucus that lives on the cervix, which blocks and traps the sperm, and 2) the hormones also sometimes stop eggs from leaving your ovaries (called ovulation), which means there’s no egg for a sperm to fertilize. No egg, no pregnancy.

The of IUD that Hellein was using was Mirena. However, just before Christmas 2016 she discovered that she was 18 weeks pregnant, meaning that Dexter was conceived only a few days after it was installed.

The device did not show up on an ultrasound, leading her obstetrician to suspect that it had probably fallen out. However, it had been hiding behind her placenta, which is how it allegedly ended up in Dexter’s hand when he was born.

IUDs are reputed to be effective 99 percent of the time. “IUDs are so effective because there’s no chance of making a mistake,” Planned Parenthood goes on to explain.

“You can’t forget to take it (like the pill), or use it incorrectly (like condoms). And you’re protected from pregnancy 24/7 for 3 to 12 years, depending on which kind you get. Once your IUD is in place, you can pretty much forget about it until it expires.”

But Hellein says she is not taking any chances in the future. After giving birth to Dexter she reportedly opted to be sterilized by having her fallopian tubes removed.

Dad Notices Something ‘Different’ About Newborn, Murders Him In Cold Blood

A man in Kasur, Pakistan, strangled his newborn daughter to death and buried her in the courtyard of his home.

The girl, who was just a few hours old, was killed because her father reportedly wanted to have a son. The child’s mother, Shamim Bibi, said she gave birth to the girl and brought her home that same night.

“Soon after I came back home with the baby girl, my husband Sher Alam became furious, snatched her from my hands and strangled her to death,” Shamim told the Express Tribune. 

  • Bibi filed a complaint with police regarding her daughter’s death.

“He asked me that he didn’t want a girl and I replied that it was the will of Allah not theirs,” she said in the complaint, the Daily Pakistan reported. He allegedly threatened her life if she told anyone about the murder.

Following the mother’s complaint, Sher Alam was arrested and an investigation begun into the circumstances surrounding the child’s death.

  • The incident sparked outrage among readers.

“This cold blooded murderer should have killled his mother for being a female, then as it seems he was very happy to sleep with a woman called his wife to have baby, a boy??;; Why he did not kill that woman before marriage… why he had to marry a female…

he needed a boy, so first heshould have married a boy, as if people like him a alive, all female born will be killed/murdered by idiots like him; .. He should be hanged soonest without delays,” one Express Tribune reader commented.

In a similar incident, a Saudi mother was arrested for stabbing her husband to death because he was attempting to smother their 2-month-old son.

The woman was detained after she stabbed her husband for trying to smother their baby with a pillow to “end its screams,” Daily Mail reported. The woman fled to a neighbor’s house before police were alerted to the scene and responded.

Unusually Hairy Newborn Baby Looks 80 (Video)

With his unusually hairy back and the looks of an 80-year-old, it’s not hard to see how one baby born on Sept. 25 in Bangladesh is capturing international attention.

The child has a rare condition affecting only one in four million people: progeria, which causes one’s body to age must faster than normal, the Daily Mail reports.

“The baby does not look like a newborn at all,” explains the doctor treating the baby. “There are prominent signs of aging such as excessive wrinkles and rough skin texture.”

Yet while the world might be shocked by the the thick layer of hair on the baby’s back, his premature wrinkles, hollow eyes and shriveled body, the baby’s parents couldn’t care less.

‘”We can only thank God,” said the baby’s Dad, Biswajit Patro, a farmer. “There is no need to be unhappy about the appearance of my son. We will accept him the way he is.”

In fact, Bisjawit is proud of the way his son looks, India Today reports. “Our first child, Aparna, has taken after her mother,” he said. “But my boy looks like me, and I am happy.”

Even more remarkably, the parents are choosing to maintain a positive attitude despite the fact children with progeria often do not live past the age of 13.

“We are so happy to have a baby boy in the house,” is all Biswajit could say. “We are already blessed to have a daughter. Now we are a family of four. What else can we ask for.”

Still, even if the baby lives a long life, it’s difficult for many children with the condition to live normally.

Nurse Films The Rare Moment A Baby Is Born Inside A Fully Intact Amniotic Sac

As an unborn baby grows inside the protective membrane of his or her mother’s amniotic sac, the sac typically bursts on its own, causing the mother’s water to break. The baby you’re about to meet, however, was not born the traditional way — and if you’re able to stomach it, you’re in for a miraculous surprise.

The following footage was recently recorded in a hospital in Spain. It captures the rare moment that a baby is born within a fully intact amniotic sac, just minutes after its twin was delivered normally. This is also known as an “en caul” birth, as the word “caul” means “helmeted head” or “veil.”

En caul births are very rare and are estimated to occur in one in every 80,000 births, possibly even fewer.

Curled up in a ball on the hospital table, the baby can be seen making subtle movements and slight motions, and you can clearly see the blue umbilical cord also inside the sac. Doctors and nurses are gathered around the baby, and it’s clear even they are in awe of the medical miracle lying right in front of their eyes.

I can only imagine what it was like to break the baby out of the sac — and to see the moment the twins meet outside of the womb.

When This New Mom Posted Picture Of Her Baby, But People Were Outraged!

Be cautious of what you post on the Internet. By sending a photo or comment into cyberspace, you’re setting yourself up to be critiqued by viewers.

What you thought was an innocent photo highlighting your triumphs can quickly be slammed by thousands of viewers who think something is wrong with your picture.

Australian model and fitness guru, Chontel Duncan, learned this lesson the hard way. Duncan is heavily involved on her social media accounts and regularly posts selfies before and after a workout or as she goes about her daily life.

Her more recent post received huge backlash from followers who were appalled by how she was handling her newborn baby, Jeremiah, in the photo.

The picture shows Duncan posing in the mirror with her phone in her left hand and her 13-week-old son in her right arm.

His neck was cocked back slightly and when women saw the photo they were outraged. Some of the commentators accused Duncan of being an ill-fit parent and slammed her for concentrating more on her physical appearance than properly caring for her child.

The model immediately responded to critics and explained that one picture didn’t reveal the entire story.

She posted a second photo taken right after the first, which showed her son resting peacefully on her chest.

The moment that she took the first photo, Jeremiah had lifted his head slightly, which is completely normal for a baby to do, but then nuzzled closely to his mother for the remainder of the shoot.

This isn’t the first time Duncan is receiving backlash from her social media followers. Just a few weeks ago, a picture of her pregnant belly went viral.

Duncan has received some criticism for exercising while pregnant, though doctors state that this is generally perfectly safe. The backlash is actually what inspired her to continue to post photos of her pregnancy.

In an interview with Today Parents, Duncan said, “Once it became clear to me (through my social media posts) how foreign

it was to see a pregnancy performed like mine, it did get me thinking, ‘Maybe I should continue to document my pregnancy because it seems that we are misled to believe that we are more fragile than we really are.’”

It’s important to remember to gather all of the facts before jumping to conclusions. To claim that Duncan doesn’t know how to care for her child, based on one image, is preposterous and completely unwarranted.

Of course there will always be disagreements about how to properly raise children, but it doesn’t mean that a parent should be criticized for not meeting another’s standards.

After this experience, we’re sure that Duncan will be checking her photos carefully before she posts them online.

A Nurse Went To Check On Mom And Her Newborn. What She Sees The Mom Doing To The Baby? UNFATHOMABLE

Nurses and doctors were dumbfounded when they walked in on a mom biting her newborn son in a “cannibalistic act.”

Just days after her son’s birth, the 24-year-old mother was found biting into her infant’s arm. The nurse who discovered the horrible reality tried to pry the mother’s teeth off the child but mom resisted.

That’s when a team of doctors entered and forcibly removed mom’s incisors from the baby’s arm.

After doctors were able to forcibly stop the young mother from eating her newborn son, they sedated her and took the baby away to safety.

Allegedly, the mother was found pregnant on the street and taken in to the hospital. Just days after she finally gave birth, the new mother decided to have her infant son for a meal.

She bit the baby hard enough to make his hand and arm bleed.

“It was really shocking, the arm was badly damaged and suffered not only heavy bruising but bleeding as a result of the bite,” said a hospital spokesperson, according to The Daily Mirror.

“Fortunately, doctors managed to insert something to stop her closing her teeth and then levered her jaws apart. After that they gave her a sedative and took the baby to a secure location.”

The mother is suspected of having mental health problems. And the hospital is still investigating the incident andseeing what they can do to keep the baby safe and help the mother get better.

Mom Expected A Normal Childbirth, But When The Doctors Get Excited? She Can’t Believe It!

It’s not everyday you’ll see something like this. And as this new mother began to recuperate from the pain of giving birth, she was obviously a bit concerned when she saw her doctor excitedly whispering to his colleagues.

But it was nothing to be concerned about because her team of doctors was looking at something very rare indeed.

The newborn, while out of his mother’s womb, was still swimming in the amniotic sac. Technically, this baby had not officially been born yet, and still hadn’t taken his first breath of fresh air!

The amniotic sac provides the baby with a constant supply of nutrients, as well as serving as a cushion of protection from any bumps that might occur from the outside world. As this little one grows inside of the protective membrane of his mother’s amniotic sac, it usually (and conveniently) opens, causing the mother’s “water to break” moments before she begins to give birth.

However, in rare occasions, this protective sac manages to make it out completely unopened. And as the doctors watch the baby moving inside, it really shows how much of a miracle childbirth is. As the baby moves his tiny arms, you can’t help but be amazed with how incredible this whole world is!
