A hospital consultant whose twins were delivered prematurely while she was in a coma with COVID-19 has said it’s “amazing” they 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.”
Palmer, a girl, and Pascal, a boy, were born on 10 April at just 26 weeks old, weighing only 770g and 850g.
