Amazing young parent saves her babies life

An amazing young parent saved her newborn daughter’s life by giving her mouth to mouth minutes after giving birth. Amy O'Riordan went into labour three months early in her bedroom and acted quickly to save the life of her baby Jessie. A resident doctor said that, “Another five minutes without help would have made the difference between life and death”

Parents in South Wales are being urged to make sure their children get the MMR vaccination as an outbreak of 190 cases of Measles hits South Wales. Dr Marion Lyons, director of health protection, said: “We cannot emphasise enough that measles is an illness that can kill, or leave patients with permanent complications including severe brain damage, and the only protection is two doses of the MMR vaccination.” Has your little one had the MMR?

Finally, a woman in China was left feeling very silly after the fake baby bump she used to encourage people to give her a seat slipped off and exposed her scheme to a carriage full of annoyed commuters. She later wrote to complain to the makers of the fake silicon bump about the poor quality of the product!

  • very well done to the young mum who saved her babies life! i think this shows just how important first aid training is, it can literally save so many lives! I hope they're both ok and the little one is doing well after being born so prematurely! With vaccines i'm totally for them and plan on getting my daughter entirely vaccinated once she's here, i trust the doctors and specialists who work on them that they're safe otherwise why would they have allowed several generations of people get them? As for seating, i've not actually used public transport while i've had my bump but i'm hoping that people are as respectful as those commuters are to pregnant people!xx

  • Well done to the young mum who saved her daughters life! I hope everything is going well for her and her daughter now. When my little girl arrives I'm going to make sure she gets every injection she can to protect her from infections in the future. Also the story about the fake baby bump is hilarious! I'm 32 6 weeks and I've got a huge bump, so its not like people don't notice, but I've never been offered a seat on the bus. Someone people have no respect xx

  • I agree well done to the girl who saved her babies life, as they say mothers instinct really kicks in ! its amazing to hear some good comments about young parents this story like many others show that being a young parent doesn't make you a bad parent !! Also i agree with Charley about the people don't seemed to have manners when it comes to pregnant women today i got on the train an only 1 person offered me a seat and the guy who offered me a seat HAD A BROKEN ARM! some people have no respect for pregnant women its so irritating!! x

  • Well done to the parent who helped saved her baby's life, that is amazing, she should be very proud of herself! Wow that lady in China using a fake baby bump just to get a seat, shame on her! & having the cheek to complain about the product as well is ridiculous x

  • Well done to the young parent for her quick thinking that saved her babys life! I hope all goes well for them. Jamie has had the mmr jab, its important to make sure your child has all the right vaccines to keep them healthy. My sister is a nurse and says the whole paranoia on mmr is being blown out of proportion as their is no proof of the mmr causing any damage to a child. Jamie had it and is a healthy little boy! Shame on that lady with the fake baby bump! But good on the people of china who give up seats for pregnant ladies! When i was heavily pregnant, i was on a bus with a few privately educated school children who did not offer me their seat, its a shame all that money on education doesnt go towards some manners!! X
