She was rushed from her Birmingham home to the city’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

She was put into an induced coma and her babies were born by caesarean on April 10. 

Perpetual then spent another 16 days on a critical care unit.

She said: “I thought I’d lost my pregnancy because I couldn’t see my bump any more.

“Sometimes I look at them in tears, I never knew they would make it."

Daughter Palmer and son Pascal, kept in incubators on the neonatal intensive care unit, were then introduced to her.

Husband Matthew said: “I had mixed feelings when I first saw the twins but my wife was still in a coma.”

Perpetual eventually left with her twins to applause from staff.
