& # 39; We didn't think they would make it & # 39 ;: the incredible story of mothers and newborns about surviving when a severe flu forces her to give birth while in a COMA – after doctors told her family to pretend prepare for the worst
- A very flu-like mother was in a coma when she gave birth to her child
- Gillian Wright, 28, had an emergency coupon to save her life and her daughter
- The baby was born four weeks early with the flu and miraculously survived
- Mrs Wright only met her baby when she came out of her coma eight days later
A flu mother gave birth to a baby in a coma and they both survived against all odds.
Perth woman Gillian Wright, 28, was hit four weeks before the birth of her with a serious case of flu.
Doctors at the Armadale Hospital in Perth were forced to place her in an induced coma before performing an emergency C section in a desperate attempt to save the lives of her and her unborn child.
Alex's husband, Alex, was told by doctors to prepare for the worst & # 39; because & # 39; we don't think she will make it & # 39 ;.

But when Mrs. Wright finally awoke eight days later from her coma, she met young Kayleigh.
& # 39; I am impressed that she lies on my chest as soon as she was born and I cannot remember that & # 39 ;, Mr. Wright told Daily Mail Australia.
The C-section helped Gillian's lungs open, which was essential for the survival of both her and her baby, according to doctors.
Kayleigh was born four weeks early with influenza and spent her first 10 days on antibiotics in intensive care.
Mrs. Wright does not remember that she had met her daughter for the first time because anesthesia was still in her system.

& # 39; Everyone asks me if it's weird, but it's not like I forgot what happened, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; I just didn't know that the 24 hours has changed in eight days.
& # 39; I was so excited when I came around enough to remember. But I was so scared too.
& # 39; I kept thinking that something was wrong and I did something wrong. & # 39;
Although the mother of two missed Kayleigh when she was born, she said that there is & # 39; enough time for more & # 39; scoops & # 39;. & # 39;
Mrs. Wright was not vaccinated against the flu before she was struck by the virus.
& # 39; No one had offered or suggested it, & # 39; she said. & # 39; I feel that I would not have been as sick as I was (if I had taken the flu shot). & # 39;

Mr Wright's husband issued a strict warning to potential parents who followed the trial.
& # 39; I almost lost my wife Gillian and daughter Kayleigh to this roaming virus and 14 other families have not been as happy as we & & # 39 ;, he wrote on Facebook.
& # 39; Please take this flu season more seriously and make sure you all get flu shots, especially the children. & # 39;
Kayleigh was removed from the antibiotics when the infection left her system.
She was closely monitored in the NICU before finally being taken home with her family.
& # 39; We are both good and it is up for discussion now, so that is all that matters, & # 39; Mrs. Wright told Daily Mail Australia.
& # 39; Kayleigh is now three months old and is flowering. She is in her normal happy state. & # 39;
Mrs. Wright said that there is & # 39; enough time for more & # 39; scoops & # 39; & # 39 ;. She is depicted with her husband Alex, Kayleigh and her five year old son
Baby Kayleigh was born with the flu and managed to overcome it thanks to close supervision in the NICU and antibiotics
