After the birth of her twins, Julia suddenly becomes paralyzed

The incident happened on December 6th when Julia Bohmke went into labor in the 38th week of her pregnancy. She decided to have an epidural anesthesia (PDA), but unlike her first birth, this time the anesthesia ended in tragedy. After the injection and an emergency cesarean section, the mother woke up with no feeling in her legs and a severe headache. “Bild” reports on this.

“I didn’t know something like this could happen after an epidural. The probability is probably as high as winning the lottery,” the mother, who was left paralyzed despite two operations, tells the newspaper. The 37-year-old is currently in a rehabilitation clinic. “At first I couldn’t move my legs at all, but now I could only move them a little,” says Bohmke. “I have no feeling in parts of my back and the right side of my stomach.”

Family urgently needs financial support

Julia B. and her husband are facing major financial challenges. The family’s home needs to be converted to make it handicapped accessible, and a fundraising campaign has been launched for this purpose. Financial support is urgently needed: from April 28th, the father-in-law’s loss of earnings will no longer be reimbursed by the health insurance company. A Gofundme campaign has been started.

Despite the severe blow of fate and the uncertainty as to whether and how the mother-child bond can be built, Julia Bohmke remains combative. In the rehabilitation clinic she makes small progress and gains strength for the future: “I know how much the rehabilitation helps me. And I also know that there is something else going on.”
