A 28-year-old mother has met her new born baby for the first time, seven weeks after giving birth to her.

Colvina Jolin, Intensive care nurse from Portsmouth, England, gave birth to her daughter Maia while she was in a coma.

Jolin suffered a stroke while she was 23 weeks pregnant and was hospitalized with just 10 percent survival rate.

"It's a miracle that we both survived," said Jolin.

Jolin was doing housework when she passed out following an intense headache. Doctors found that she had suffered an aneurism that led to a stroke.

Dr Andy Eynon, who performed emergency brain surgery on Jolin to relieve the build-up of "massive pressure", said they were fearful they would lose both mother and child, admitting they had "never seen anyone survive this".

"Jolin's condition stabilized after the operation, although she was still in a coma."

Jolin's mother Sue Walder said, "My daughter regularly moved her hand, as if rubbing her pregnant belly. It is as if she still sensed she was pregnant."

Five weeks later, Jolin gave birth via C-section to Maia, weighing around 3lb.

"In my 13 years of doing neuro-intensive care at our hospital there have been just three cases," said Dr Eynon.

"I know it sounds stupid but I never remember not having her. It's as if she was always there, even though I was in a coma when she was born," said Jolin.
