A pregnant mother has recalled being 'absolutely petrified' she would die, after beating coronavirus, and being told she's expecting healthy twin boys

Danielle Martin, 32, Belfast, was rushed to hospital with coronavirus earlier this month, after she fell ill with what she thought was a chest infection, and spent ten days in a coma in intensive care while nine-weeks pregnant.  

She appeared on Good Morning Britain today where she explained that it's terrifying to think she 'may not be sitting here today', and told of the moment she was given the news of twins alone without her partner Bryan Green, 32.

She added: 'I was in complete shock, I just couldn't believe it. My partner didn't know and I had no way of contacting him to tell him.'
