Chaitanya’s first baby of the new year a Real Miracle!

He’s a New Year’s Day miracle.
The first baby born in Chaitanya Hospital-Chandigarh in 2018 almost didn’t come — baby stopped growing more than a week before her Jan. 10 due date, sending her proud second time parents-to- be rushing to the Chaitanya hospital one day before New Year’s to embark on a labor that’d end up lasting more than 10 hours. But in a miraculous turn of events, new mom Abha Singla, was able to have a natural childbirth right at the stroke of midnight. baby was born at 5:30 a.m., and both she and Mom are perfectly healthy, Dr. Babita Said.
“This is my miracle baby. This is my blessed baby,” said Amit Singla (Baby’s Father).
“Praise the Almighty. I cried [when I first saw her] … I saw his little fingers, I felt very happy.” Abha went through a grueling 10 hours of labor — at some points telling her young husband she was on the verge of death.“She was in so much pain she told me, ‘I am going to die. I can’t tolerate the pain. Forgive me,’” “She was so tired because it had been almost 10 hours. She didn’t sleep, she did not eat. She lost her voice.”
Abha needed medication to induce the early labor, but it wasn’t enough — after six hours, she’d only dilated to 4 centimeters, and 10 is needed for natural childbirth. She was told to prepare for a C-section. At the last minute, Abha dilated to 10 centimeters at 4:40 a.m.“You are going to have a New Year’s baby!”
In Chaitanya Hospital baby was born at 5:30 a.m., sending a crowd of doctors, nurses and other hospital staff cheering, clapping and celebrating the first birth of the year.  “It was a big celebration. Not only the doctors and nurses shouting but all the staff, they came, we clapped. We all celebrated … we felt so amazed. We felt special,” Amit said.
“I was crying but I’m so happy now,” said the new mom, still drowsy from painkillers after the arduous birth. “I’m feeling very excited for my first baby, my New Year’s baby,” Abha smiled.
Amit said baby is definitely a “special one.” “I’m so excited, this is my second time I become a dad. I cannot express myself but I feel totally special,” Amit said. “And it’s New Year’s, so he is going to be a special one and we will make sure he is special.”
