Bethanie Millar rushed to hospital after her waters broke and she discovered they were green.
By the time she got there, her baby didn’t have a heartbeat and Bethanie needed an emergency C-section.
Bethanie, who was 21 at the time, said: “I was awake when doctors told me they couldn’t detect a heartbeat, I was so scared.
“I then went straight into an emergency C-section, it all happened so fast.
“When I came round, my mum and sister were by my bed crying.
“I knew something bad had happened, but I was so out of it I thought I was still pregnant.”
Evelie was born without a heartbeat, and doctors spent a heart-wrenching eight minutes trying to resuscitate the baby, The Mirror reports.
It’s A Miracle
But just when they’d given up hope, Evelie’s heart started beating on its own.
Bethanie, who also has daughter Mila-Beau, aged two and a half, said: “When they said her heart started beating on its own I couldn’t believe it.
“I thought that was it, that everything would be fine, but it was far from over.
“I couldn’t even see her, she had to be transferred to Stoke-on-Trent and I wasn’t allowed to go with her.”
Evelie who was born weighing 3.65kg, spent nearly three months in hospital , and when Bethanie was finally able to get up to Stoke after being discharged, doctors told her Evelie might not make it.
The mum-of-two added: “Doctors said she’d be a vegetable. I couldn’t stop crying.
“They said she wouldn’t be able to see, hear or move.”
Bethanie’s mum, Nikki Millar, was at the hospital when doctors delivered the devastating news.
Nikki said: “I know they were just doing their job, but they told us Evelie wouldn’t be able to move, or feed or have any quality of life.
“We’re a positive family, but they took all our hope away from us. There wasn’t even a glimmer left.
“We came home that night and couldn’t stop crying.”
“They did an MRI scan, and she just started to improve.
“It’s like she’s defied everything. I was never really a believer until Evelie.”
After 84 agonising days in hospital, delighted Bethanie brought her baby home.
Bethanie said: “She really is amazing. I still look at her now and just cry.”
Gran-of-four Nikki, a development manager, said: “She’s our little miracle.
“She sits up, she’s happy – she even clapped her hands before she was supposed to.
“She’s absolutely incredible.”
We wish little Evelie all the best.
