A mum has praised her doctor as being a “miracle” after he helped save her baby.

Amy Good, 18, was shopping in Halstead last Thursday with her daughter, eight-month-old Miley Montanjees-Good, when her baby stopped breathing.

“I was so scared that I just rushed into our doctor’s surgery, Elizabeth Courtauld surgery, and asked to speak to a doctor.

“They asked me why and when I explained, I only had to wait about thirty seconds to a minute before Dr Abidhar Prasad came to see her.

“He was fantastic. He checked her all over and put himself out to make sure that she was OK.
