Doctor Calms Baby Down Singing Nat King Cole’s ‘Unforgettable’

A heartwarming clip of a doctor soothing a baby has gone viral on social media and is bringing smiles on the faces of people seeing it on social media.


Shannon Wemyss shared the clip on Facebook and has already garnered 43,000 views already.

Shannon’s daughter had been to the clinic for a blood test and the doctor sang Nat King Cole’s hit song ‘Unforgettable’ in a bid to distract her from the pain.

The 10-month-old baby loved every minute of the song sung by Dr Ryan Coetzee and didn’t get anxious for even a minute during the blood test.

Shannon described the moment and said that Dr Ryan Coetzee was absolutely amazing when he sang to baby Gracey at Raigmore Hospital in Inverness, Scotland.

Grace has Down’s Syndrome, and also had open-heart surgery and a kidney operation and needs to have her blood drawn regularly.

Dr Coetzee can be seen singing to the little baby lying on a hospital bed next to a toy.

Watch the adorable video below.

The classically-trained doctor from South Africa was not sure what to sing at first, before he decided to sing “Unforgettable.” He certainly did much more than what he is being paid salary for and is spreading so much kindness and joy in the hospital through his musical talent.
