Nurse admitted to hospital with Covid gives birth to first child on Eid Al Adha


After two years of caring for others during the coronavirus pandemic, it was Indian nurse Sherin Babu’s turn to receive extra special care as her first child arrives minutes away from Eid Al Adha.

Ms Babu, who has recovered from Covid-19, gave birth to Seria Mary Rony at Medeor Hospital in Abu Dhabi to make Eid celebrations even more special for her family.

We didn’t expect to give baby Omar a special welcome into the world on the occasion of Eid Al Adha.

Giving birth in the hospital where she works as a specialist intensive care nurse meant that Ms Babu was surrounded by friends and colleagues.

Seria was born just after midnight and weighed 2.86 kilograms.

“Sometimes such coincidences make us happy,” Ms. Babu said.

“I have worked on the front line here, and we have seen the plight of our patients in intensive care and have supported them.

“When I was sick with Covid-19, I was well cared for by my colleagues.

“Now I was surrounded by them to welcome my first baby.

“They are like guardians for my baby and me. I will cherish this moment forever as a healthcare worker.

Ms Babu handled complex cases during the peak of the pandemic and supported patients in intensive care for weeks.

In the line of duty, she caught the coronavirus in June last year. When her symptoms worsened and she had difficulty breathing, Ms. Babu was hospitalized for several days.

Ms. Babu was released a few days later after recovering from complications.

“This Eid Al Adha is so special for us because Sherin is like family and has been such a brave warrior on the front lines,” said Dr Walid El Sherbiny, consultant obstetrician and gynecologist at Medeor Hospital.

“For this reason, welcoming baby angel Seria on this auspicious day is a time of joy and pride for all of us.”

Mrs. Babu was one of the first women to give birth in the early hours of Eid Al Adha.

At Burjeel Hospital in Abu Dhabi, Abdul Rahman Omar Abdulrahman Mohamed was born to Egyptian couple Omar Abdulrahman Mohamed and Yasmin Sadeq Abdelhamid, and is the first child in the family.

Abdul was born at the stroke of midnight and weighed a healthy 3 kg.

“Our whole family has been eagerly awaiting the baby’s arrival since Yasmin became pregnant,” Mr Mohamed said.

“We did not expect to give Omar a special welcome to the world on the occasion of Eid Al Adha. His birth on this blessed day has doubled our happiness.

At the Danat Al Emarat Women’s and Children’s Hospital, parents celebrated the first day of Eid Al Adha with the arrival of three baby girls.

The first was the Emirati family of Sultan Hasan, who took in his daughter Dana.

The second was delivered to a Jordanian family at 3:51 a.m. and the third Eid baby in the hospital was delivered at 7:09 a.m.

Asma’s father thanked the hospital staff for the safe delivery.

“We thank God that she and her mother are healthy,” said Emirati Mussalam Mohammed Alrashdi.

Since Danat Al Emarat Hospital in Abu Dhabi delivered its first baby in 2015, medical staff have seen 29,153 babies, 16,172 of whom were Emirati.

Meanwhile, at NMC Specialized Hospital in Al Ain, Shemeema Puthu gave birth to her second child, Anoush Ahmed, at 12:44 a.m., and was supported by her husband, Noufal Mambullinhalil, an Indian accountant.

The baby was born at term and weighed 3.05 kg.

Just before 4am, an Emirati baby girl was also born at the NMC Royal Hospital in Sharjah.

Shahd Ismail Miri was the second child of Ismail Miri, a construction supervisor at the House of Wisdom and the Sharjah Investment and Development Authority.

“I am very happy to once again be the father of my beautiful and precious baby girl,” Mr Miri said.

“I want to thank Allah for this blessing. He gave us his blessings on such a holy day. I am thrilled and delighted.
