As a new mum was left paralysed, but is lucky to be alive after she developed pre-eclampsia and a stroke was 29 weeks into her pregnancy. Claire Winnett, 24, said that it all started with the uncontrollable shaking in her right arm, which resulted in an emergency trip to the hospital.

At just 29 weeks pregnant, and doctors are faced with a race against the clock to secure the delivery of her daughter, Sienna, in an attempt to save both the mother and the baby.

There is Winnett, Doncaster, England, for the diagnosis of pre-eclampsia, and the doctors discovered a hemorrhage in her brain. She was forced to deliver baby Sienna via emergency C-section and was in the queue for another brain surgery to save her life, SWNS reported. Sienna weighed just 2 pounds, 4 ounces at birth.


“The doctor and the doctor told me that I would have been dead, but before they are able to work, they wanted to save the baby,” Winnett told SWNS. “She said we were both lucky to survive. It is very rare for this to happen during pregnancy. We both could have died. I had no idea how serious it was until afterwards.”

Winnett had been in a coma for 10 days after surgery, while the Market has been placed in the hospitals NICU.

Pre-eclampsia is a condition that occurs only in pregnant women and can lead to high blood pressure, protein in the urine after 20 weeks of pregnancy. It affects at least 5-8% of pregnancies, according to the American Pregnancy Association. Severe pre-eclampsia may be the cause of headaches, blurry vision, inability to tolerate bright light, fatigue, nausea/vomiting, urinating small amounts, pain in the upper right abdomen, shortness of breath, and a tendency to bruise easily.


If it is not treated, it can lead to serious complications, such as hepatic or renal failure, future cardiovascular issues.

Winnett was placed in a 10-day coma after her surgery, and came at last to her daughter, and for 12 days after giving birth.

“I was scared to death,” Adam Winnett, partner, told SWNS. “I honestly don’t think that Claire would have to make. She told me that she may not have the surgery. I had no idea what was going to happen to them. I will pray for Claire.”

Winnett, and Market both of them have been able to go home from the hospital after a two-month stay.

Winnett said she will be able to keep track of her daughter 12 days ago, and after two months they were both able to go home. Winnett is still in physical therapy and is not in a position to run with it, but it has movement in her toes.


“The pre-eclampsia was diagnosed, and I had no idea it was causing high blood pressure,” Winnett told SWNS. “Well, that is what is causing the trouble. I just couldn’t believe it. But it was all worth it to be Featured in all of the world. I don’t know what I’d do without her. If I would have survived without her, and I felt guilty. It helps me to get stronger. I want to get the better of her. I want to be able to play with my daughter.”
