Shelly Cawley had an uneasy feeling like a premonition about the C section she was about to have, and even mentioned she was afraid she was not going to wake up from it. Turned out she was right, there were more problems, and after the surgery she slipped into a coma, and bad only got worse. She was put on a ventilator, and it seemed she just was not fighting to live. That is until nurses decided to try Kangaroo Care in reverse. Nurses know how beneficial Kangaroo Care is for new born babies. Situations that have seemed hopeless have turned around when the new born has been placed on the mother, and cuddled closely. Kangaroo Care involves holding the baby close, with skin-to-skin contact between a mum/dad and baby.
