Laura & David Costello's DIY SOS to bring Laura home

Something For The Weekend

Tuesday, April 26th, 2022 - 16 minutes

Laura and David Costello chat to Trina Mara about the shocking day Laura suffered an amniotic fluid embolism as she gave birth to their 4th child.  A terrifying experience, Laura's heart stopped beating for 42 minutes.  But she is a fighter and came back.  It was a significant brain injury and so Laura is learning how to walk and talk again and with the help of Baz Ashmawy and the team on TV's "DIY SOS", she has finally come home from hospital after 18 months.

However, Laura needs physiotherapy, which costs €1,000 a week, and the more sessions she gets, the better her chances of walking again.
