November 19th. According to a report by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) on the 19th, a covid-19 patient in Birmingham, UK, received a cesarean section during a coma and gave birth to a pair of twins. After waking up, the patient said, “I can’t believe they are my children.”
According to reports, the patient is named Perpetual Uke, a rheumatology consultant at Birmingham City Hospital. At the end of March 2020, she began to feel unwell and was sent to the intensive care unit for ventilator treatment. After that, she was artificially induced into a coma to help recover.
On April 10, local time, Yuke, who was in a coma, underwent a caesarean section at the 26th week of her pregnancy. When her daughter was born, her weight was 770 grams and his son’s weight was 850 grams.
After that, Yuke remained in a coma for 16 days. Her husband Matthew said, “It’s really terrible…every day, I hope my wife can live”, “We are a whole, and the thought that she might not be there is very acceptable.”
According to reports, after Yuk regained consciousness, he was confused about giving birth to a child. Although the hospital staff said that the baby is her baby, Yuke “still doesn’t believe”, “When I showed me the photos, the children were so small that they didn’t look like humans. I can believe they are my children.”
According to reports, the twins were discharged after being in the hospital for 116 days. “As time goes by, things get better and better,” Yuk said. “At the beginning of their lives, I never thought of asking them to walk such a difficult road. They couldn’t see their mother for two weeks. I am sad, but the important thing is that things are going well.”
