A family has paid a heartbreaking tribute to ‘Supergirl’, who died after five weeks without leaving the hospital.

Sophia Mannan was born in August last year following an “emergency” C-section but tragically died a month later.

Parents Abdul Mannan and Sarah Farkas were over the moon with their new daughter Sophia, who was their second child.

Everything was as it should be for most of the pregnancy, but on August 5, the parents noticed that she wasn’t moving as much as usual.

Manchester evening news Doctors at the Royal Oldham Hospital reportedly discovered that Sophia had an irregular heartbeat.

They ruled that Sarah should have a “category two” caesarean, meaning she should be seen within 75 minutes.

The family raised concerns about the placement in Category Two rather than Category One at the Rochdale Coroners’ Court inquest.

Category one would have meant the procedure was performed earlier.

But staffing issues at the Trust and a particularly busy day were also raised during the hearing.

The pediatric histopathologist Dr. Melanie Newbould determined that Sophia’s cause of death was hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, or brain damage resulting from not getting enough oxygen to her brain.

It is not known exactly when this might have happened, especially as the pregnancy appeared to be going well.

This meant Sophia was born with “no respiratory drive,” said Dr. Newbould, and their situation “never improved”. Sophia was put on a ventilator after birth, but her health did not improve.

Doctors and midwives who looked at Sarah said the procedure itself was uneventful, but the mother was concerned and they wanted to give birth sooner rather than later because of Sophia’s abnormal heart rate.

Helen Thomas, a midwife for the trust, said in a statement: “Because of the employment, she (Sarah) could not be moved as quickly as we would have liked.”

She added that Sophia’s brain is in “poor condition” after birth, but that’s to be expected in children born prematurely.

a dr Diah, from the Northern Care Alliance, reviewed Sophia’s death and said the decision to put Sarah in category two was “perhaps wrong”.

However, Sophia should have suffered a “considerable insult to the nervous system” anyway.

The court heard Sophia could have been born at least 20 minutes earlier if Sarah had been placed in category one.

Coroner Michael Salt concluded that Sophia died a “natural death”.

He said: “It was recognized that this should have been reported in a different category but it would have made very little difference.

“But it is correct that this investigation was carried out. All in all, these were very stressful events for the family.”

Abdul and Sarah paid tribute to Sophia after the hearing, saying: “The whole situation has been very difficult and it still is.

“Something needs to be done about the staffing shortage that the hospital needs to address the staffing shortage because that’s not how it should be, especially in a ward like the maternity ward.

“We all love our Supergirl. She’s fought so much since she was born and never got to see what we looked like, but she will be missed always and forever, our little sunflower.”
