Inquest into the death of CORRINA ANNE MEDWAY
5. Corinna Medway was 32 years of age when she became pregnant with twins. Her estimated delivery date was 26 June 2011. This was Ms Medway’s second pregnancy. In her first pregnancy the pregnancy ended at 32 weeks gestation following preterm rupture of the membranes with labour leading to a vagina delivery of a male infant on 14 January 2010.\r\n6. Ms Medway had a medical condition known as Factor V Leiden mutation and also had a pro-thrombin gene mutation. This meant she had an increased tendency for her blood to clot. For this condition she was taking a low dose of aspirin during her pregnancy as a prophylaxis against the clotting factors.
