Young woman gives birth to twin girls before losing battle against Covid
Mullaringad (Idukki): Even when struggling due to Covid complications, a young woman safely delivered her twin babies before taking the last breath.
24-year-old Krishnendu, wife of Mullaringad native Siju, gave birth to twin girls before losing the battle against Covid-19 at Kalamassery medical college.
Krishnendu, who was 9-month pregnant, was admitted to a private hospital in Mullaringad on Friday due to severe breathing trouble. Later she was shifted to Kalamassery medical college. She was diagnosed with Covid. Also, she was infected with pneumonia.
Doctors decided to take the babies through surgery as Krishnendu’s condition was critical. Thus the babies were delivered through C-section on Friday and they were shifted to ventilator. However, Krishnendu died on Saturday morning.
Siju and Krishnendu got married only a year ago. Her delivery date was due on October 10.
