Covid-19: Twins delivered in Birmingham while mother in coma

 


A Covid-19 patient whose twins were delivered while she was in an induced coma said she struggled to believe they were hers.

Perpetual Uke, a rheumatology consultant at Birmingham City Hospital, began to feel unwell in late March.

She was later admitted to a critical care unit, placed on a ventilator and put in an induced coma to help her recover.

Her babies were delivered by caesarean section at 26 weeks on 10 April.

Sochika Palmer weighed just 770g (27oz) while her brother, Osinachi Pascal, weighed 850g (30oz).

Dr Uke remained in her coma for another 16 days.
