Assistant Professor with "Pregnant Symptoms" revealed how she woke up in a hospital bed to find she was born.
Lisa Davey had no idea that she was expecting a child when her sepsis had worsened and her health got worse.
The 27-year-old was introduced to A and E at Victoria Blackpool Hospital in April last year with suspicion of abdominal infection.
The medics have discovered that they have a small abdomen that initially thought it might be related to the possible infection.
But the ultrasound showed that she was actually a 26-week pregnancy and developed HELLP syndrome – a rare liver disorder of blood clotting and a condition affecting pregnant women.
As her health worsened and her organs began to fail, the doctors took Lisa to the Caesar Theater to save both her and her baby.
Little Daniel Alice Davy was born 14 weeks earlier and moved to the neonatal ward at Royal Preston Hospital for specialized care.
Lisa – who had been working for 80 hours before she received sepsis – was moved to the intensive care unit at Victoria's Blackpool Hospital.
Unbelievable, but she only finds out that she is now a new mother when she wakes up in her hospital bed.
She said, "I could not believe I worked 80 hours a week, and I was lifting heavy boxes I had no idea I was pregnant I did not have any symptoms.
Mom decided to call her daughter a "miracle" after the "wonderful" sister who treated them, Daniel McCartney.
33-year-old Daniel had just begun her shift, and Lisa was her first patient.
"When I met my girl a week later, I knew I had to call Daniel after the fantastic care I had received from such a beautiful nurse," Lisa said.
Ten months later, mother and baby are doing well and enjoying a normal life in Blackpool, Lancashire.
"Lisa was so bad we did not know that the baby would succeed.
"No one had any idea when she came that Lisa was pregnant – including Lisa herself.
"There was only one small belly that we thought could be related to a possible infection.
"I stayed with Lisa for three and a half hours and visited her every time I was on a shift.
When Lisa told me the name of the baby, I cried, I was so overloaded – I was just doing my job.
"But having such a sweet joy called after me is such a great honor, that's the high point of my career."
