‘We love him so much. Grace developed Covid-19 two weeks ago and although her symptoms were mild at first, they worsened as the days went on.
‘Which meant they had to deliver the baby as soon as possible, as she was just too unwell to carry on with the pregnancy.
‘Grace was admitted into intensive care on Christmas Day due to issues with her breathing & therefore they had to make the decision of placing her into an induced coma, to give her body the rest it needs, in order to recover.’
The message ended: ‘She’s currently stable but please keep her in your thoughts & prayers.
