    hi my bro's OH gave birth via emergency c-section tonight and is now in intensive care as was brought in severely jaundiced and doctors don't know what's wrong. they said her kidneys and liver have stopped working but they don't know why.

    i know it's a total long shot but has anyone any experience in this they can offer?

    on a positive note, baby is doing brilliantly...he's in scbu as so early but doing just fine thank god

    so sorry to hear that, I know pre eclampsia can cause kidney and liver problems and failure in severe cases. could that be a issue? Hope she is better soon and home with the baby x

    hi

    i hope things get better soon!!

    i know with me when i was in labour (induced due to pre eclempsia) at the nasty part my liver and kidneys started to fail...hence my early labour, could this be a reason, however i wasnt jaundice but that is a sign of liver failure

    thank you so much everyone for your kind words and suggestions.
    following a load of tests they now believe it was the HELLP strain of pre-eclampsia and apparently it develops so quickly that many women and their unborns die before they even get to operating room...thank god my brother acted quickly in getting her to the hospital!
    she's still in intensive care but much more stable now and making a slow but steady recovery.

    baby is in scbu and will be there for about next 6 weeks and although a little jaundiced too is doing so well overall (he's a very active little monkey already!)

    i'm so relieved that today is over and things look so much better all round.
    once again thank you so much for the support
