Channel 4 News announced today that the little girl is alive and being treated.
It is not clear whether the child tested positive for the deadly virus.
According to reports, the condition of the pregnant woman initially seemed to improve before deteriorating.
The tragic mother of the baby was remembered as a “fabulous” nurse.
The CEO of the Trust, where the nurse worked, sent an internal email about the tragedy, saying that the decision to perform an emergency Cesarean had been made while her condition was worsening.
But he said that his little daughter’s survival was a “beacon of light in this very dark time”.
It comes after tributes were paid to a “superhero” doctor and a “wonderful” student nurse who died of coronaviruses.
