Young mum, 29, dies of coronavirus days after giving birth without ever holding her baby son

A YOUNG mum died from coronavirus just days after giving birth – and didn't get a chance to hold her baby.

Fozia Hanif, 29, was given a picture of her son Ayaan but didn't get to hold him after testing positive for Covid-19.


Her condition worsened and six days later her family was told to come and say goodbye to the new mum who had never held her baby.

She sadly died at Birmingham Heartlands Hospital where nurses gave her a photograph of her boy.

Fozia’s husband, Wajid Ali, told ITV News: "She was really happy, she got the baby photo they (nurses) printed out for her.

"She was holding and say ‘look it’s our baby’ and ‘we’re going to come home soon’… that’s the last time I spoke to her."

He added: "They said we’re going to keep her here to find out and we’re going to do a Covid test and they kept her for two days.

"The test came back positive and the next day they said it was mild and you can go home.”

“After four days she had difficulty breathing and we called the ambulance."
