Yvonne Sullivan, 28, fell into a coma during childbirth (after hearing that her newborn son died during a traumatic birth).
Weeks later, after doctors told her husband that they might have to switch off her lifesupport machine, her husband managed to waken her up with some "rollicking."
Her husband Dominic said:
"When the doctors told me to think about turning off the life support I got angry," he added. "I grabbed her hand and began shouting at her. I gave her a bloody good rollicking. I'd already had to explain to Ryan that his brother Clinton had died, and that his mummy might not survive. He said he'd be cross with the doctors if they let mummy go to heaven. I kept telling her to pull through. Then I left the room to get some air.
"I came back two hours later and she had started to breath. It was incredible. Sometimes you find powers you just didn't know you had.
