  • A 28-year-old pregnant woman was induced into a coma after becoming seriously unwell with COVID-19, reports say.

  • While she was in the coma, The Sun reports that doctors performed an emergency C-Section.

  • Kelsie Routs woke up from the coma and discovered that she’d given birth to her baby boy, Kobe, a week earlier.

According to The Sun, an unvaccinated 23-year-old woman from Lincolnshire, England, awoke from an induced coma woke to discover that she’d given birth a week earlier.

Kelsie Routs was 28 weeks pregnant when she was taken by ambulance to a hospital on August 8 after falling ill with COVID-19, the graphic designer said in a Facebook post.

She had developed pneumonia, and her lungs had started to fail, she said.

The Sun reported that she was induced into a coma to give her body a chance to recover.

Routs said on Facebook, doctors performed an emergency C-Section two days later, to “relieve pressure” on her lungs, and successfully delivered her newborn child.

Routs woke up seven days later, per The Sun, and discovered that she had given birth to a baby boy named Kobe, who weighed just under 4lbs and was born 12 weeks premature.

“To wake up from a coma and have a newborn baby – it’s just too much to get your head around,” Routs told The Sun. “I know the doctors had to do it to protect the baby, but shock doesn’t really cover it.”

She slowly recovered, the mother said on Facebook and was gradually taken off sedation and then off life support.

Routs’ message to her friends on Facebook was to take COVID-19 seriously. “I’m only 23, hadn’t had the vaccinations with no health issues,” she wrote. “Just take it seriously. I’ve suddenly seen such a massive rise in the amount of people contracting it and becoming ill.”
