After delivering a baby boy, a mother getting affected with a rare medical condition could survive for a little time, as per a hearing.
Twenty-eight years old Julie Welsh became victim of amniotic fluid embolism, a condition that affects only 18 in a million women and takes life of 80% of them.
While giving birth to child, the fluid around her womb entered into her blood stream that led to suffering her with heart attack. Though Medics tried hard to save her life but she could not survive more than an hour-and-a-half.
The inquest heard that it was not possible to identify that she was affected with such a medical condition and thus, there were little chances to save her life.
Pete Brown, fiancé of Julie told that just after seeing her son’s face and making certain comments about his features, she closed her eyes.
On April 5, Julie, a Judo champion was admitted to Royal Derby Hospital after she started having labour pain at home. As she had not dilated, it was decided to give her an emergency caesarean. Though, no problem occurred during the surgery, soon after she gave birth to Isaac she passed away. At 12.20am on April 6, she was declared as dead.
“There are no records of any mothers at Derby's hospitals ever having the condition”, said Dr. Roberto Caranza, consultant anesthetist.
