Mother in hospital
This news is from England. A woman is in hospital. She is giving birth. Doctors give her an injection. The injection makes her feel no pain.
The mother gives birth. Five hours later, she cannot feel her legs. She asks the doctors, but they say that it is fine. The next day, it is the same. She cannot feel her legs. The doctors start to panic. They operate on her.
The woman has a clot in her body. It presses on her spinal cord. This is bad. The woman cannot walk now. She feels very bad.
Difficult words: to give birth (to make the baby come out of your body), clot (a piece of hard blood in your body), spinal cord (the series of small bones in your back).
