It was only 10 days after giving birth to Maisie that Stevie Caffrey collapsed due to peripartum caridomyopathy and had to be in coma and after she woke up, she failed to recognize her daughter and her partner Andy Stafford.
More than 15,000 mothers are affected by this condition and all the 20-year-old could remember after getting up from coma was Andy sitting with her holding her hand.
She said, “He went out the room and I asked the nurse, who’s that? It’s your boyfriend, she said and I thought that I haven’t got a boyfriend. Then she said my dad was coming with the baby and I said, I haven’t got a baby.”
Memory was regained by Caffrey, of Netherton, Merseyside, after two days but not less than three months were taken by her to get back home.
Caffrey was treated at Wythenshawe Hospital in Manchester after being taken to two hospitals.
Doctors had conducted a heart surgery on Caffrey and she wanted a transplant but they inserted a ventricular assist system to help her live as they wanted to avoid the risk.
She woke up in December after collapsing in November and doctors have already done all they could have done.
