Amanda Davies Husband
She is happily married to the love of her life Sam Davies. However, not much is known about her husband as he leads a very private lifestyle.
Amanda Davies Daughter
A daughter was also born to the couple. Molly, their daughter, was born in 2009.
Molly’s birth, on the other hand, was a mystery. Amanda’s water broke while she was delivering BBC World’s sports news when she was seven months pregnant. “It was the BBC World Sports shift, which is typically quiet,” she noted in an interview. I had been feeling off for days but couldn’t pinpoint why. I started to Google my symptoms when a friend who was six weeks ahead of me in pregnancy claimed it was usual to feel damp, but it was probably a bad idea.”
She was transported to Shepherd’s Bush’s Queen Charlotte’s Hospital. The physicians admitted her for monitoring after a thorough check and informed her that her baby could be born prematurely. Her water didn’t break for the next seven days, and she ultimately went into labor on May 25, 2009.
“After a few hours, the baby’s heart rate began to decrease, and the doctors hurried in and told me they needed to get her out very immediately.” There was no time for pain medication, and all I recall is a sensation of terror,” she continued.
“The cord was wrapped around her neck when we caught a glimpse of her through the crowd of doctors and nurses, and she looked like she’d gone ten rounds with Mike Tyson,” she recalls. I was frightened. My husband and I were speechless — this is not the way you expect to see your new kid. ‘It’ll be OK,’ people kept telling us, but it was hard to believe. You just have to trust that they’re doing their best. Then, just five minutes after I gave delivery, a doctor told me I required immediate medical attention.”
Davies was admitted to the newborn intensive care unit and stayed there for six weeks. She’d been through a lot of blood loss. She also used the milk bank to get breast milk for her child because she didn’t produce milk until two weeks after giving birth.
She currently resides in Western London with her family.
