My Wake-up Call to Speak Up...

It was a glorious day on 4thAugust 2006 when I attended the maternity hospital with my husband to have my second child.  Like any expectant parent, we were excited and so looking forward to meet our new baby.

Callum was born by caesarean section @2pm.   At 2:20pm whilst in the recovery ward I turned to my husband Fran and said ‘look after Callum’, I felt a chocking sensation, as the life drained from me, I gasped and stopped breathing. 

The surreal scene before me was one of chaos, commotion and desperation as hospital staff spent over 20 minutes trying to revive me.
