“My baby and I would not be here today if it was not for the Midlands Air Ambulance; and my other two daughters would not have their mum or little sister. Thank you will never be enough.”
Our aircrew were immediately dispatched to treat Natalie after she was stabbed 24 times in a brutal attack whilst eight months pregnant.
After just 12 minutes providing advanced care on scene, she was ready for the flight to the QE Hospital in Birmingham. Once there, she was given blood within minutes, an emergency c-section and major surgery to repair damage to her heart, lungs, liver, wrist and abdomen.
A few minutes extra would easily have resulted in a different outcome for both mother and baby.
