Joanne in hospital in a coma

'Meet the brave mum who gave birth in a coma and waited five months to kiss her bub for the first time.'

For those that don’t know her story, Joanna suffered a hemorrhagic stroke when she was 32-weeks pregnant with her daughter Melanie.
Doctors delivered Melanie by c-section a month early because Joanna's heart rate was erratic.

When Joanna awoke from the coma, her husband Kevin, showed her a gallery of pictures he'd taken of Melanie so she could see her baby girl's first days. Read more here.
