MANILA – Dr. Drolah Sanchez could not believe it when a miracle unfolded before her eyes after a baby, who was dead when she was born, came back to life for “medically unexplainable” reasons.

Speaking on “Rated K,” Sanchez said the baby did not show any signs of life when she delivered her due to all the complications she suffered from being in her mother’s womb for 42 weeks.

“Si baby Maria Teresa, meron siyang pediatrician. Hindi lang ako 'yung naggamot doon. Chineck niya lahat. Normally, alam nating hindi possible 'yan kasi from the start naman, inilabas nating patay 'yung bata. Hindi naman nating inilabas na buhay, na may kaunting signs. Ito talagang wala,” she said.

Despite this, Sanchez tried to revive the infant as she called on Mother Teresa to pray for the baby so that she may be given a chance to live.

To her surprise, the baby came back to life and started to breathe on her own after 25 minutes.

Asked why she thinks this happened, Sanchez said: “Kung mababasa niyo 'yung pinost ko sa social media, sabi ko dinadala tayo ng Diyos kung para saan tayo. Huwag na tayo magtanong. Isang reason siguro, kung hindi ako nadala sa Lobo Hospital at hindi ako 'yung doktor na nandoon, baka hindi nabuhay 'yung bata.”

“Para sa akin, itong mag-inang ito 'yung milagrong nangyari sa akin kasi pinakita nila sa akin not to give up, na lahat ng miracle nandito lang sa tabi natin basta kailangan lang natin ng faith,” she added.

Calling it a miracle, the baby’s mother Prescila Catarinim named her daughter Maria Teresa.
