A newborn baby is just the most fragile and delicate stage of being a human being.
No matter how careful you are around a newborn, it will just never be enough. They are little, fragile humans with not so strong immunity and no joint bones to help them stand or walk on their own. Thus, their life completely depends on the people around them.
Kelly Ineson, a 30-year-old woman was blessed by a baby girl in her life bu the happiness couldn’t last much longer as she was left in a depressed state as her daughter passed away just 14 days after she was born. Kelly and her fiance Thomas Cummins were always very attentive and careful when it came to little Kiara Cummins.
But they don’t know what happened because after they were discharged from the hospital, on the 10th day of her birth she was rushed to the hospital. The doctors admitted her instantly but they could not find what was wrong with her.
The little Kiara was struggling too much. Later it was found out that she was suffering from neonatal herpes. This is newborn herpes that is caused by highly contagious simplex herpes. It causes cold sores and ulcers in the genetics of an adult. If the disease could trouble a full grown person so much then just think what it could have made that little baby goes throw.
On the 14th day, the doctors found out what she was suffering from and told her parents that there is no way they could save her.
Her body gave up working so the doctors decided that there was no use of struggling. They one by one switched off the machines that were helping her body parts to stay alive.
The virus reached to the baby by a kiss. People are in a habit of kissing little babies out of affection but it is very important to know that the same is not safe for the child.
They are very young and any little virus can affect their life as this one did. It was not known who did the virus came from but it was clear that it was a kiss that brought the virus in.
Kiara’s mother Kelly was extremely sad about what happened to her daughter and so she is spreading awareness about the same now.
She said “We were always so careful with her. We had never let a sick person go near her. No one was even allowed to touch her without washing their hands. The doctors asked us if we can remember anyone with cold going near her but we do not remember anyone like that at all. If we had noticed someone like that then we would have never let the person be around her.”
She is asking other mothers to not make this mistake and take complete care of how the situation goes. It is a little life and babies are very precious.
