Lucy was born by elective c section at 37 weeks on 12th Feb 2014.
She was "showing sign of an infection" had a low temperature and was "grunting" so she was taken to SCBU to be checked and was put on antibiotics "to be on the safe side" for 48 hours. After 48 hours we were allowed home.
A week later she seemed a bit out of sorts and was sleeping an awful lot and even slept through a couple of feeds, we put it down to taking her out in the fresh air for long periods of time, but something was niggling me so I made a mental note to mention it to the midwife the next day when she was due to come round and sign us off.
On day 10 she wasn't right - I couldn't put my finger on it but knew there was something, I put her in the bath to try and rouse her a little bit, it seemed to have the desired effect, dressed her took her downstairs and gave her to dad to feed her.
A few minutes into the feed he suddenly held her up in the air - she was grey!!! I felt sick, he said something’s not right, ring an ambulance!!! She had stopped breathing, the call handler talked us through what to do and luckily within a few minutes 2 ambulances arrived and 4 paramedics came rushing in.
Lucy was already on the floor and they just took over, they managed to revive her, it was quite honestly the scariest thing I have ever been through.
