A woman recently received the surprise of her life after waking up from a Covid-19-induced coma. Astonished doctors informed the mother of three that she was expecting twins.

Parent24 reported that Danielle Martin from Northern Ireland developed severe flu symptoms which led her to seek medical assistance. She was diagnosed with pneumonia but further tests revealed that she had contracted the coronavirus.

Her oxygen levels had dropped severely and she had to be put into an induced coma. She spent 10 days in the coma but never expected what she was told upon waking up. Doctors had discovered that she was pregnant with twins.

Martin said she was in disbelief when she heard the good news, which was the cherry on top after successfully beating Covid-19.

“I’m recovering with plenty of rest and hoping my friends and family are doing the same.”
