A woman who gave birth to twins while in an induced corona virus coma has described the birth as a “miracle”.
Woman gives birth to twins while in a coma: Hospital consultant, Perpetual Uke, was admitted to Queen Elizabeth hospital in Birmingham when she contracted the virus back in April. And was put into a medically induced coma as her condition worsened. In case she did not recover the doctors decided to deliver the twins via caesarean section. Just 26 weeks into the pregnancy.
When Uke awoke from the coma she feared that she had lost her babies as she couldn’t see her bump. She said “I couldn’t see my bump and I thought my babies were gone. It’s just a miracle what happened, to come out of this. We are all doing very well. I remember getting ill and the ambulance coming to take me away. And then I was put in a coma.
Coming out of the coma was the worst aspect. I had nightmares. I was delusional, I couldn’t see my bump and I thought my babies were gone and all my family had died. It was a very, very worrying time for my husband and kids. And, even after I woke up, I couldn’t see my babies for more than two weeks.” The twins, a girl named Sochika Palmer, and a boy named Osinachi Pascal weighed 27oz and 30oz respectively.
Uke has since been reunited with her twins, her husband Matthew and her two other children Nnamdi Ronald, 12, and Chisimdi Claire, 11. She finished off by saying that coming home was a big healer for her. And that the family are very, very happy now.
