A Covid-19 patient who was pregnant with twins, woke up from a coma in hospital to find her babies had been delivered alive and well.
Perpetual Uke was around six months pregnant when she began to feel unwell with Covid-19 symptoms in March.
Uke, a Birmingham City Hospital rheumatology consultant, became critically ill and ended up in her own workplace on a ventilator.
After a month in coma, her doctors determined it would be better for her and the twins if they were born by caesarean section prematurely.
She told Sky News, "I was 24 to 25 weeks pregnant at that stage, and I was so disoriented by the time I woke up. I figured that I had lost my pregnancy because I could no longer see my bump. I was very scared and disoriented."
The twins, who Uke and husband Matthew have named Sochika Palmer and Osinachi Pascal, were cared for in the neonatal intensive care unit until they were 116 days old. The family were clapped out of the unit by an emotional team when they were finally able to leave the hospital.
