“It’s the ancient instinct: In times of great danger, be wary of strangers. Trust no one outside your circle. But there’s another instinct, far older, as old as life itself, nearly impossible for the human mind to override: Protect the young at all costs. Preserve the future.” and here are 9 UNBELIEVABLE Stories Of Motherly Instincts.
1. Rosie Bell of England noticed her Daniel bumping into things and took her to the doctor who diagnosed him with Hayfever. However Daniel continued to remain sick and was later diagnosed with Brain Tumor.
It had grown to the size of an adult fist, and probably had been growing for years. It took a 9hr operation to remove the tumor. Rosie and her family were scared if Daniel would make it through the operation and would he be the same as before.
Daniel was absolutely fine after the operation and returned to being a typical mischievous three-year-old boy, always happy and a bundle of energy, all thanks to his mother’s instinct.
2. Beth Clemison 35 weeks pregnant mother felt something was wrong with her unborn son Theo as his movement was less. She immediately rushed to the hospital where an ultrasound revealed that the unborn baby only had 1cm of amniotic fluid surrounding him in the womb, as opposed to the 4cm in a healthy pregnancy.
Beth had a premature delivery via caesarean section. Theo has turned 8 months old and is healthy. Beth supports the UK charity Kicks Count which encourages pregnant women to pay attention to their baby’s movement and report any changes in activity to care providers.
3. Tyler from Spokane, Washington walked into her living room with her laundry basket in one hand and her 9 month old baby in the other. In a split second Tyler left the basket and grabbed her baby and ran out to the kitchen.
When she turned around she saw a huge tree which crashed into the living room. It was her motherly instinct which made her ran out of the living room with her baby as there were no signs of the tree crashing into the room. Tyler felt lucky and was glad she listened to her gut instinct that saved their lives.
4. A mother’s intuition may have saved the life of her baby girl after she decided to leave an emergency room after waiting hours. Nine month old Khloe is now being treated for meningococcal after being diagnosed by a GP with a hospital admitting its care fell short.
Khloe’s mum Darcie Mitchell noticed something wasn’t right on Tuesday afternoon. “She woke up from a nap like normal, eyes fluttering and vomiting everywhere, and shaking and severe temperature,” she said.
Darcie took Khloe to John Hunter Hospital where nurses suspected she had gastro and gave her Nurofen. But after four hours in the waiting room, Khloe’s condition was not improving. Her young parents made the decision to leave and take her to see a GP.
“I strongly believe that if I didn’t take her to the GP she would not be here now.”
Khloe was brought back to the hospital by ambulance. Test confirmed she has meningococcal septicaemia. The hospital’s general manager has apologised to the family, saying in a statement: “ …In this instance it appears that we have fallen short.”
5. Jennifer Juarez had a gut feeling that something was wrong when her baby, who had kicked up to 10 times in a half hour during the latter part of her pregnancy, suddenly went still. But at about 37 weeks, she said the baby seemed to stop moving.
“Every morning I felt kicks — she was very active and always moving,” said Juarez. “So I did all the things they tell you to do–I drank cold water, lay down for a while and ate some sugar. I felt something was off, but I wasn’t sure.”
Hope was delivered three weeks early in December 2013 by emergency cesarean section, but she was so pale at birth that when doctors tried to prick her foot to measure oxygen levels, they could barely get a drop of blood. About 80 percent of her blood had drained from her body due to a fetal-maternal hemorrhage.
But Hope was lucky because of her mother’s instinct, according to Dr. Marielle Nguyen, a neonatologist at Kaiser Permanente, Irvine Medical Center, where Hope was born. She said all indications are that the baby will have no problems. “We have seen this, but not often,” said Nguyen.
“In Hope’s case, her outcome was beautiful because it was the classic textbook case they tell you about. The mom knew right away that she had a clue something was wrong. She couldn’t feel the baby move. And she came in right away and we delivered the baby. If we had waited any longer, the outcome would have been different.”
6. A mother’s intuition saved her four-month-old daughter who developed a rare cancerous tumour in the womb. Baby Penelope was born with a bruised lump on her back, which grew bigger over time. Doctors told her worried mother Emily, from Adamstown Heights, NSW, that it was reflux, colic or constipation, she said.
But Emily remained adamant that something was wrong – and Penelope was later diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS), a rare cancerous tumour that affects soft tissue. ‘It’s been a rough journey so far and we still have a long road ahead of us,’ Emily added. ‘I am determined to give my baby girl the best chance at life as I want her to develop and have the same experiences as other infants her age.
7. Does a mother’s intuition truly exist?
Meet the woman who claims ‘gut feelings’ saved her child from injury – and even death Mother’s intuition is considered something of a legend, but Michelle Mathis claims that listening to hers was an accurate way of predicting when their children were in danger.
Mrs Mathis, from Cardiff by the Sea, California, felt a strange urge to find her two-year-old daughter Delia during a family party one afternoon. She had no reason to believe that Delia – who was fully dressed at the time – would be playing with her five-year-old sister Shay in the pool, but her instinct led her to check there. She then spotted Shay treading water in the deep end, trying to hold something above it.
‘I saw Delia’s bow floating at the top of the water and yelled to Shay “Is that Delia?”‘ recalls Mrs Mathis. ‘Her small voice replied “yes”.’ Mrs Mathis immediately dove in and rescued her daughter, amazed at the tragedy she had prevented by acting on her instinct.
Ancient Romans believed in a type of sixth sense. ‘[They] believed that human beings have some sort of guiding mechanism built into you,’ There is some sort of self-protective mechanism that guides us through life.’
8. A woman who awoke in the middle of the night to find her five-year-old daughter being kidnapped by a stranger has revealed ‘woman’s intuition’ made her know something was wrong.
Stephanie Holladay Edson woke up at 4am and quickly alerted her husband Aaron Edson to wake up and run outside. Their daughter Lainey was being carried across the front yard of their home in Sandy, Utah – allegedly by Troy Morley, an escaped convict.
After a calm interaction between Aaron Edson and Morley, the little girl was handed back to her family unharmed. Morley was later found inside a neighbor’s home as he snuck through the doggy door to hide from the cops, but was later arrested.
Speaking exclusively to Good Morning America on Monday, Mr Edson, 37, revealed that there were no noises in the home that woke them up – and instead thanked his wife’s ‘woman’s intuition’ for saving their daughter Lainey.
9. A mother’s instinct can be a very powerful tool. This mother was able to spot her own blood, even after 6 years of being separated. Delima Vera was only 10 days old, when her family’s two storey house in Philadelphia, PA was on fire and Luz Cuevas, Delima’s mother could not find her in her bedroom.
She eventually ran out of the house, overcome by smoke and burned on her face. Her two other children also survived, police said. Remains of the infant’s body were never found, and police concluded they had been incinerated in the flames. But Cuevas never fully believed her daughter died in the fire.
In January, she attended a birthday party for the child of an acquaintance and was struck by the resemblance of a 6-year-old girl to herself and her other children. Telling the girl she had bubble gum in her hair, Cuevas was able to take strands of her hair in hopes a DNA test would prove she was right, according to Philadelphia police Lt. Michael Boyle of the special victims unit. A state legislator helped put Cuevas in touch with police, who launched an investigation and had DNA tests performed that confirmed the girl is her daughter.
Police say Carolyn Correa, 41, a resident of Willingboro, New Jersey, a Philadelphia suburb, started the fire and kidnapped Delimar, whom she passed off as her own daughter.
