A Woman Who Agreed To Be A Surrogate For Her Gay Friend Has Revealed How She Nearly Died Giving Birth To His Twins
A woman who agreed to be a surrogate for her gay friend has revealed how she nearly died giving birth to his twins.
Kind-hearted Kerry Stevens, from Torbay, Devon, was left bleeding internally at 36 weeks when the placenta sheared away from the wall of her uterus just moments before a planned Caesarean.
She was rushed into theatre for emergency surgery to deliver the baby boys after their oxygen supply was cut off and Kerry, 38, was left in agony while horrified dads Ondrej Simecko and Abel Lantos watched on helplessly.
A team of 15 medics battled to deliver the twins and midwives told Kerry that if she had been even 10 minutes away from the hospital when the placental abruption happened, the babies wouldn't have made it.
After being rushed into theatre, https://indiaeduinfo.co.in/qtoa/index.php?qa=52173&qa_1=georgina-rodriguez-flaunts-posterior-leggings-during-workout identical twins William and Arthur were born on 9 July 2019.
Luckily, the twins arrived safely thanks to a quick delivery, while Kerry needed a longer hospital stay to stabilise her after losing so much blood.

She underwent blood transfusions where doctors pumped the blood she was losing back into her body while the twins were pulled from her womb at exactly the same time.
'It was a total nightmare,' Kerry said 'One moment we were all in the hospital smiling and taking pictures together before the planned Caesarean, and then I started to get excruciating pains in my left side.

'I was screaming in agony and knew something wasn't right. The placenta sheared away from the wall of my womb, meaning the twins could have died.
'I'd wanted to help my friends have a family but when doctors said they couldn't find the babies' heartbeats and I was bleeding internally - everyone was panicking.
'I've had five babies now and this labour was by far the worst.
It was scary but it was worth everything to see my friends holding their gorgeous babies.'

Kerry, who has three children of her own, had never thought of being a surrogate before meeting Ondrej, 31.
But he'd mentioned it on the very first day they worked together at a care home for autistic adults where Kerry was the deputy manager and he was a support worker.
'As soon as we started talking he jokingly asked me to be his surrogate,' said Kerry.
