Waking from a coma after five months, Louise Koch thought her lifelong dream of becoming a mother would never happen.

A polocrosse accident in 2015 left Louise with an acquired brain injury and she had to learn to walk and talk again.

"I just thought 'well, that's done for me. I have got no hope of ever becoming a mother. How can I lift up my baby or carry it around?'" she says.

She's proven herself wrong.

Louise married her partner Pat in 2019, and two years later, they welcomed baby Arthur, who is now 16 months old.

"He has made me realise that I can do things," she says.
