It was the news that no mother wants to hear. Jocelyn Robinson was told by doctors that her baby had no heartbeat. When Jocelyn arrived at Mt. Sinai Hospital, she was suffering from severe complications. Doctors ran an ultrasound, and it seemed the baby was gone. “I had to sort of be very honest with her and say, ”We don’t hear a heartbeat,” said Dr. Sampson. She even called in a second doctor. “Another doctor came in and said, ‘I’m sorry, your baby passed. We can’t find the heartbeat,’” said Jocelyn.
Of course, the parents were devastated to hear this, but their lives were about to change forever. “When they told me he passed away, I just started crying,” said father, Ignacio Guzman. Doctors then began to focus on saving Jocelyn, who was bleeding severely. Her placenta had blocked her cervix, a condition known as placenta previa. But what happened next is what doctors are calling a Thanksgiving miracle birth.
Dr. Sampson heard the tiny baby boy gasp. Then she heard it again. The doctor quickly alerted the nurses who made sure he was all right. Born at just four pounds, 13 ounces, Noah turned out to be a miraculously healthy baby boy.
“I will never forget this day. Thanksgiving Day and my baby is born,” said the baby’s father, Ignacio Guzman. “It’s a miracle. You can’t say anything other than that,” said Dr. Sampson.
