A rheumatology consultant at Birmingham City Hospital gave birth to twins while in a coronavirus induced coma.

Perpetual Uke has described the delivery of her babies as a “miracle”. The woman was only 26 weeks pregnant when she contracted the coronavirus in April. Her condition worsened and she was placed on a ventilator in a medically induced coma and gave birth prematurely by caesarean section.

“I was pregnant at 24 to 25 weeks, at that stage, and by the time I woke up, I was so disorientated. I thought I’d lost my pregnancy because I couldn’t see my bump any more. I was really worried and disorientated,” she told Sky.

At birth, the babies, a girl named Sochika Palmer, and a boy called Osinachi Pascal, weighed only 765g (27oz) and 850g (30oz).

In another statement, Ms Uke said: “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 woman has since been reunited with her husband and two other children.
