Brain haemorrhage during pregnancy put mum to be in a coma, story in the DAILY MAIL
Emma Hawkins was 24 weeks pregnant when she collapsed at work.
Rushed to hospital where doctors warned her devastated husband to prepare to lose her and their baby
She fell into a coma and remained in hospital for four months
At 37 weeks her son was born healthy by c section and is now 17 months old
People often think newspapers and magazines are only interested in publishing shocking and sad news. But this isn’t so. We all need inspirational and happy stories in our lives – some triumph over tragedy to read. So when Emma Hawkins came to me with her amazing story I knew I would be able to place it for her.
Emma and baby Joshua-Jay have both defied all the odds to both survive a potentially catastrophic event.
Emma, 32, a technical anakyst was just 24 weeks pregnant when she collapsed at work.
Doctors diagnosed a bleed on the brain and told her devastated husband Jay that there was little hope for her or their unborn son.
But incredibly Emma defied all the odds to survive. After going through 11 hours in surgery, where doctors managed to stem the massive bleed and then slipping into a coma, her son – her first baby – she and her unborn baby clung to life.
After spending the rest of the pregnancy recovering in hospital, little Joshua-Jay was finally born at 37 weeks by C section. Incredibly he was unscathed by the drama and a healthy 6Ib 11oz.
His father still feels emotional when a nurse laid him in his arms – and he also knew his wife was fine.
Today Joshua-Jay he is a lively 17 month old toddler – and his mum is back to work.
Emma and Jay’s story made a super piece in the Daily Mail newspaper and I am delighted that I have now placed it with a top women’s weekly mag!
Emma says: ‘I hope my story inspires anyone else going through such a nightmare that a good outcome is possible.’
