Ellie Wright contracted Corona during pregnancy. After giving birth, she was put into an artificial coma. She is still weak – but her child could finally see her for the first time.
Moving story: five weeks after the birth, a mother who was seriously ill with corona saw her baby in Great Britain for the first time. Because she was still weak, Ellie Wright (20) did not straighten up, but took the hand of her son Leo, reported the BBC and Sky News.
The young woman was infected in the 30th week of pregnancy. However, she could not receive any treatment necessary for survival before the child was born, according to the hospital in the central English city of Walsall. After Leo was born by caesarean section, his mother was placed in an artificial coma for several weeks.
The 20-year-old will probably take a long time to be fit again. After weeks of artificial respiration, she had to learn to eat, drink, speak and walk again, it said. Baby Leo is developing splendidly and has since left the hospital, said his grandmother Michelle Stankevitch.
