Lisa Davey, 27, decided to call her miracle baby born 14 weeks earlier than expected, Danielle. It occurred after Davey was admitted to the Emergency Department of Blackpool Victoria Hospital in April 2018 with an alleged abdominal infection. The doctors discovered that she had a tiny belly that, in their opinion, could be related to the possible infection.
But an ultrasound revealed that Davey was 26 weeks pregnant and had developed HELLP syndrome – a rare liver, a blood clotting disorder and a condition affecting pregnant women.
His health deteriorated dramatically after contracting sepsis and his organs began to fail.
In order to save the mother and the baby, the doctors decided to take Davey for a caesarean section.
Tot Danielle Alice Davey was born 14 weeks early and was transferred to the neonatal unit at Royal Preston Hospital for specialized care.
Davey was transferred to the intensive care unit of Blackpool Victoria Hospital and discovered that she was now a new mother when she woke up. in his hospital bed.
She was still working 80 hours a week and did not know at all that she was waiting until she was taken to the hospital.
"I could not believe it. I worked 80 hours a week and raised heavy boxes, "she said," I did not know I was pregnant. I had no symptoms. When I met my little girl a week later, I knew I had to call her Danielle after the fantastic care that I had received from such a wonderful nurse.
Ten months later, mom and baby are doing well and leading a normal life in Blackpool, Lancs County.
As a thank you, Davey named his newborn baby after 33-year-old Sister Danielle McLardie, who had just started her shift, with Davey being her first patient.
"Lisa was so poor we did not know it or the baby would not get out," McLardie said. "Nobody knew when she came in that Lisa was pregnant – including Lisa herself – there was only a tiny belly I stayed with Lisa for three and a half hours and I visited her every time I worked. said the name of the baby, I cried to be so overwhelmed that I was only doing my job – a happy bundle of joy named in my honor is such an honor, it's the culmination of my career.
