She was taken to the city’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital and ended up on a ventilator, in an induced coma, and her babies were born by caesarean section.
A hospital consultant whose twins were delivered prematurely while she was in a coma with COVID-19 has said it’s “amazing” they survived.
Perpetual Uke said she had not been sure her children “would make it” after she contracted coronavirus and fell ill in late March.
When she came out of the coma, she thought they hadn’t survived.
Mrs Uke told Sky News: “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.
Sometimes I look at them in tears, I never knew they would make it. It is amazing what medical professional science can offer”.
