British woman gives birth to twins while in Covid-19 coma

Dr Uke gave birth at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham

UK's anxious husband Matthew responded to their prayers when they came out of a coma 16 days later and began their recovery path, he told Metro.

The High-Risk Maternity Outreach team from the Women's Hospital conducted daily reviews and scans of her babies during this time when the seriousness of Perpetual's condition meant she was placed into an induced coma and her breathing was taken over by a ventilator, as she fought the infection.

Since being discharged from the hospital after almost three months in the ICU, Uke said the twins are "getting better" each day.

At birth, daughter Sochika Palmer weighed 27oz while brother Osinachi Pascal was only 30oz.

Perpetual and her twins were eventually released from the hospital and the mother said they are doing "wonderfully".

"Coming home was a real healing place for me", he said.

Immediately after they were born, they were admitted to the specialist Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. "The idea she might not be there was really hard to accept".

"I thought they were saying all those things to calm me down", she said.

'The family are now all together and we're all very, very happy'.

"Sometimes I look at them in tears, I never knew they would make it". I didn't believe them. I had dreams. I fainted, I could not see my pump, I thought my children were gone and my family were all dead.

The twins were critically premature but thanks to the care of the hospital staff, they made progress every day.

Uke describes his hospital stay as a very frightening time for his husband and their two older children.

'Their journey has been miraculous and the day of their discharge home was very emotional indeed.

The twins, who were delivered on April 10 at 26 weeks, each weighed under two pounds at the time of their birth.

'It was such a pleasure for us to care for this wonderful family and we have the upmost admiration for them'.
