The parents of immature twins, believed to be the first to be born in Covid-19 in the UK, talk about joy after being declared healthy, healthy and able to go home.
32-year-old Sarah Curtis and 33-year-old husband Aaron get scared when the test returns and Sarah COVID-19 A few days before she gave birth.
She was asymptomatic, but she was “frightened” and “irritated” by herself because she was afraid that she might be there. Endangering fetal twins.
Doctors were uncertain and anxious about whether the mother could infect the baby or what the consequences would be.
Sarah gave birth 10 weeks before July 3, but her husband, Aaron, was unable to stay with her due to Covid’s restrictions and welcomed £ 3 Kena and Lissa to the world.
Doctors confirmed that they were born with the killer virus, and it was transferred to them through the placenta.
Security guard Papa Aaron was finally able to see the faces of his wife and twins in an emotionally charged scene for the first time on July 11.
Six weeks later, the twins were declared healthy and Covid-free and are now being cared for at home.
Sarah from Distington, Cumbria said: “I was more scared of Covid than mizuwari. I was nervous.
“I was very angry with myself when I was confirmed to be infected with the coronavirus.
“I didn’t know exactly what that meant.
“I lost my daughter and was afraid of the worst.
“I didn’t know who would happen. My girl was the first baby born of the coronavirus.”
Sarah, a home-based mother, says she experienced a “severe pregnancy” because she was suffering from twin syndrome.
The twin-to-twin syndrome is a prenatal condition in which twins have unequal amounts of placental blood supply and two fetuses grow at different rates.
She had to travel 300 miles from West Cumberland Hospital to London by herself to undergo laser surgery to fix the problem.
However, she was told she was likely to lose one of her twins.
The five mothers said: “I had a really severe pregnancy-I had twin to twin syndrome.
“I had to undergo laser surgery where they were told they were trying to save one of the babies-we weren’t intended to have both.
“Adam was only allowed to meet me at the end because of the coronavirus.
“It was a miracle that both twins survived.
“Last week’s hospitalization was like imprisonment.
“But thankfully, the staff were great. They made us feel comfortable despite all of our anxieties.
“In the end it was worth it. This year was a surreal year, but there are two beautiful and healthy girls.”
His father, Aaron, missed the birth of the twins and could only see them on July 11 after being transferred to Sunderland for further examination.
Aaron: “It was very difficult because I had to do everything myself. I just waited.

The family says West Cumberland Hospital staff helped them after they lost their crib Roti in 2017 and died in the crib.
Sarah said, “The staff at the West Cumberland delivery suite helped me. I was afraid to go home after losing Lotti.
“It’s still scary because you’re not past that age to stop worrying, but they helped me and later told me that I’m happy.
“The staff was incredible from start to finish and felt very comfortable with us despite all the anxieties surrounding pregnancy.
“I know people applaud for caregivers during lockdown, but they are always great all year round.
“We don’t keep two beautiful and healthy twins, if it’s their great undecided.”
