After being admitted into the maternity ward, tests showed that her blood pressure was alarmingly high and may cause fatality of either the mother or the child.

While waiting for her obstetrician, Matlaila was told that she had to be medically induced immediately and give birth because the baby was in distress.

The actress woke up with breathing pipes pushed down her throat and the doctors were in a frenzy. According to the doctor, she had died for three minutes and her daughter was born blue with no oxygen in her brain.

Matlaila was resuscitated after having fits that caused her heart and lungs to collapse. the actress almost bit off her tongue during the epileptic attack caused by high blood pressure. The mother and child then spent a month in ICU getting frequent tests until they were strong enough to go home. The proud mom reckons her story is a one in million story and her bundle of joy is a true miracle.

All i remember was using the little strength i had left , grabbed the hem of a nurses scrub and mimed the words ” I CANT BREATH “———— LIGHTS OUT. I woke up to the sound of my baby crying and I thought , well that was quick. To My Surprise , the Doctors and Nurses around me where frantic and checking me , pipes where pushed into my mouth ,drips plaved and my Dr uttering the words ,”NOLO WE NEARLY LOST U “.
I am told my heart and lungs collapsed , after I had fits (where i almost bit off my tongue) due to the High -Blood pressure ( Pre-eclampsia) . Apparently I was dead for 3 minutes but resuscitated with those electric square things a. My daughter was apparently born blue with no oxygen in her brain.
The above pictures are recordings of our recovery .We spent a month in hospital in ICU. Baby Q was undergoing various tests to her brain , draining liquids out of her lungs and on multiple drips ,while I was on oxygen masks , multiple medications and most embarrassing a catheter ,because I couldnt walk to the toilet for a couple of days.
To this day , Doctors still reiterate that our story in 1 in a million. A TRUE MIRACLE”
