Speaking after the horrifying ordeal, Claire Gaylor said: “It’s so scary to think that our future could have been snatched away”

A woman has told how she came close to dying alongside with her unborn baby while heavily pregnant after her womb exploded.

Claire Gaylor, 37, from Welwyn Garden, Hertfordshire, was 30-weeks pregnant when she was diagnosed with placenta percreta.

The life-threatening condition occurs when a placenta grows too deeply into womb muscle.

This causes excessive bleeding and premature births.

But the full-time mum-of-three has made a miraculous recovery after spending 10 days being treated for heartburn before doctors realised what was behind her agony.

Claire slipped unconscious as her health deteriorated and her baby boy, Cody, stopped breathing twice from swallowing so much blood.

He was eventually delivered by emergency caesarean.

Her heartbroken husband, Matt, 39, was told to prepare himself for the worst as both his son and wife fought for their lives.

Thankfully Claire awoke after being ventilated for five days but had no recollection of her ordeal or that she’d already had her baby.

Doctors had to perform a hysterectomy to save Claire’s life – they have both since made a full recovery from the ordeal in 2014 and are sharing their story to help others.

Claire said: “By the time doctors realised what was happening I was hours from death.

“I slipped into a coma after being in agonising pain for 10 days, when I woke up I was no longer pregnant with Cody, he had been born via caesarean.

She added: “I was diagnosed with Asherman’s Syndrome after having my two older girls who are 11 and 15, which causes scar tissue on the womb.

“It had caused irregular bleeding and after an internal abrasion doctors explained that having another baby would be impossible.

“So when I found out I was pregnant years later, I was filled with both worry and excitement.

“I was worried how Asherman’s could affect my pregnancy but I was reassured that everything was completely normal at my scans.

“My pregnancy was pure bliss until 28-weeks when I started suffering from horrendous pain above my stomach and chest.

“I had no idea this syndrome can be linked to such a life-threatening rare complication such as placenta percreta.
