“They take me to the ICU and maybe they have to take the girl out of me and intubate me”


Barcelona“Come home today but without effort, you’re still tired.” Good news. Lídia Peralta, 33, is discharged from Vall d’Hebron Hospital after going through what has been, she says, one of the worst experiences of her life. In less than ten days she has been admitted to the ICU with covid-19 and has given birth to her fourth daughter. Symptoms began when she was almost 39 weeks pregnant. Loss of taste and smell, fever, muscle aches and finally suffocation. She was transferred from Santa Caterina Hospital to the Vall de Hebron, a reference center for pregnant women with covid. Bilateral pneumonia had progressed rapidly and on arrival he was told he would have to be admitted to the ICU and perhaps had to have a cesarean section because they did not know how he would react with the oxygen and whether it should be intubated. “When I heard it I was scared, they are used to it but for me the word UCI is to put you in the worst case scenario,” explains Lídia.
