An assistant professor who finds herself pregnant when she almost died of sepsis has appointed her daughter after the "wonderful" nurse who treated them.
27-year-old Lisa Davy has decided to call her a miracle, which was born prematurely for 14 weeks, Daniel. He came after Davey was brought to A and E at Victoria Blackpool Hospital with suspicion of abdominal infection in April 2018. The medics discovered that she had a small abdomen that she initially thought might be related to the possible infection.

But the ultrasound reveals that Davey is actually a 26-week pregnancy and has developed HELLP syndrome – a rare liver disorder of blood clotting and a condition affecting pregnant women.
Her health has deteriorated drastically after she has had sepsis and her organs are starting to fail.
In an attempt to save mother and baby, the doctors decided to take Davey for caesarean section.
Tot Daniel Alice Davey was born 14 weeks earlier and moved to the newborn ward at Royal Preston Hospital for Special Care.
Davey was moved to the intensive care unit at Victoria Blackpool Hospital and only found she was now a new mother when she woke up in her hospital bed.

She continued to work for 80-hour weeks and had no idea she was waiting until she was taken to the hospital.
– I could not believe it. I work 80 hours a week and lift up heavy boxes, "she said. "I had no idea I was pregnant. I had no symptoms. When I met my little girl a week later, I knew I had to call her Daniel after the fantastic care I received from such a wonderful nurse.
Ten months later, both mother and baby are doing well and enjoying a normal life in Blackpool, Lance.

As a sign of gratitude, Davy called her newborn baby after sister Daniel MacLeary, 33, who had just begun to move with Davey as the first patient.
"Lisa was so bad we did not know the baby would do it," McCartney said. "No one had any idea when Lisa was pregnant – including Lisa herself, I thought it might be a possible infection, stayed with Lisa for 3.5 hours and visited her every time I was in a shift, and when Lisa told me the name of the baby, I cried, I was so struck – I just did my job, such a sweet pile of joy called after me is such a great honor, that's the high point of my career.
