On 18 November 2018, Nur Fadilla, who had been due to give birth for six days, underwent a C-section
"Her heart started beating again when the baby was born, but due to the lack of oxygen in her brain, she fell into a coma," Nur Fadilla's cousin Nur Hasirah said.
Nur Fadilla finally regained consciousness on 2 April, five months after she fell into a coma
According to a Facebook post by her cousin, the mother "cried her eyes out" when she first embraced her 5-month-old son
Photos of their reunion on Nur Hasirah's Facebook garnered over 1,500 shares at the time of writing.
"The 138th day," the caption read, adding that it was bittersweet as the mother did not have the strength to carry him on her own.
"Be strong for your child. May God heal you," Nur Hasirah added.
