In other Briefly.co.za news, a South African mother, Christelle Berrington recently headed to Facebook's ImStaying to share a heartfelt post about the nurses who had helped her through a difficult birthing process after she tested positive with Covid-19 while 35 weeks pregnant.
"I’m staying because of the unsung song to our nursing staff. I tested positive for Covid at 35Weeks of pregnancy. Had pneumonia. My blood platelets dropped to 14 at their lowest. I had to isolate for 14 days in the hospital just to be able to monitor platelets & then maintain those platelets to be able to deliver. These nurses became my Birthing partners as hubby wasn’t allowed in the theatre.
"They have to prep into full PPE before they come into your room & often you bell them 8-9 times per shift. I would never have been able to manage without these ladies. Thank a nurse today ~ they have such an important part to play in recovery & healing," she wrote.
