Tamiflu woman Samantha Goddard has 'miracle baby'

A woman who was told by doctors she might never be able to have children after having an extreme reaction to the antiviral drug Tamiflu has given birth to a baby boy.

Samantha Goddard, from Bicester, Oxfordshire, suffered permanent damage to her eyesight and was left in a coma after being wrongly prescribed the drug in 2009.

But she proved the doctors wrong by giving birth to her son Vinnie six weeks ago.

Partner Tony Chandler said she was doing well despite still suffering health problems.
