It should have been the happiest day ever for Kiwi couple Lydia and Christian after she gave birth to Bastian just over two weeks ago.
However, during Lydia's labour, she suffered catastrophic bleeding which caused brain damage and resulted in her being put in an induced coma.
She's still in the hospital, while her husband, Christian, looks after Bastian without her.
Bastian's uncle, Mikey Brenndorfer, says it's been an exhausting period.

"There is a potential that there was an intention for someone to die."
"Looking after a newborn baby on your own is tough, and when you add that to also watching your lover in a horrific state is tough," he told The Project on Friday.
"This has been two-and-a-half weeks of not only looking after a newborn baby but also constantly being at the hospital, having the rollercoaster ride of good news and bad news and horrible news.
"I think he's been doing amazingly well, he's been showing so much love to that baby Bastian that I'm in awe."
The family is getting support from the community, and are getting breast milk for Bastian from Mothers Milk NZ.
Mothers Milk NZ is one of a few charities around the country that coordinate breast milk donations from nursing mums so families like Christian and Lydia's can receive it.

Brenndorfer says that they are "super grateful" for the help they are receiving.
"One of the greatest tragedies, when I think about this whole scenario, is that my brother Christian is doing this amazing job as a father," he says.
"I wish Lydia could see how great he is at caring for their son."
Shocking moment a teenager slams a baby in a car seat to the ground.
A drug-affected teenager has been recorded throwing a baby in a car seat to the ground in a US shopping centre car park. The child’s mother Dusty Counts was loading groceries into her car on May 24 when a 17-year-old stranger approached her trolley, before picking up the car seat holding her one-year-old son Jensen and throwing it to the ground. “He was screaming, naturally I got him out of the car seat as fast as I could [to see] if he had bumps or bruises or was bleeding,” the mum tells ABC5. Due to being restrained in the car seat, Jensen fortunately only suffered minor bruising.
