One mother who contracted the deadly virus is speaking out. Moreover, it’s about her journey from coma to her miracle baby.
36-year-old Diana Angola got the deadly virus during her pregnancy. But she wasn’t the only one. Her mother and sister did too. And she was ultimately worried about her baby’s fate. Just the thought of a risky pregnancy made her cry. She didn’t want to choose between her life and her baby’s.
However, destiny had other plans for her. All things went smoothly as doctors saved her and her baby’s life. The baby was delivered earlier than expected. Despite many hiccups along the way, it all worked out.
And now, she’s speaking out. Her story isn’t just a memoir of beautiful thoughts. It’s a life lesson for many.
Here are more details on her miraculous delivery. And it’s one of the most jaw-dropping baby deliveries ever.
Columbian woman fights for life in a coma
Despite her induced coma, this woman gave birth remarkably. 36-year-old Diana Angola hails from Columbia. And while she never imagined her pregnancy to be easy, her delivery left many speechless.
Similarly, the brave woman fought for her life as she attempted to give birth. Things fell right into place for her. And that’s when she delivered her premature son, Jefferson at Cali.
Jefferson was born quite early, almost 14 weeks in advance. But doctors are happy with his condition. Hence, they’ve termed him as the ultimate miracle baby.
Doctors claim her lungs were ‘barely able to cope’
Diana received a scare of a lifetime. And that’s because she suffered from the scary aftermath of COVID-19.
Therefore, doctors had no choice but to put her in an ‘induced coma.’ And that’s because her condition started to worsen. According to reports, the virus affected her lungs so severely that she was ‘barely able to cope.’
And that was the point where doctors felt they needed to perform an emergency cesarean. Her lungs just started worsening and a premature delivery was required.
Diana recalls her scary ordeal
Diana is now a mother of two beautiful children. She explains that her pregnancy journey was fine, until moments to her delivery. Similarly, she claims how it all started with the most terrible fever. Doctors had no other choice. They had to treat her in the state of coma.
Surprisingly, she remained in her state of coma, until her major surgery.
Due to her pregnant condition, doctors took all safety measures. Above all, she had to maintain a 45-degree sitting position. This was a very unique approach. And that’s because you’d probably expect a more flatter laying down position Because, in the end, you want the patient to breathe easier.
Despite all the major scares, Diana delivered baby Jefferson. He was born virus-free. However, he did struggle with his breathing. And that’s when doctors knew he needed reviving.
Miracle baby was underweight with breathing problems
After birth, the miracle baby remained in the incubator. Doctors explained how they had to deal with the situation very carefully. Moreover, that meant following proper protocols.
He was born very underweight with breathing difficulties. However, a timely approach allowed him to gain weight, and breathe more easily now, explained doctors.
Today, Diana and her baby are doing well. She has also recovered from her virus.
‘It’s really emotional knowing that we fought, that the medical doctors assisted in our survival.’
Furthermore, Diana says that she doesn’t know how she got the virus. She went on to reveal how her family followed the lockdown rules.
Sadly, Diana’s mother and one of her sisters also contracted the virus. Recently, they passed away in intensive care.
This story serves as a life lesson for many others. Latin America is emerging as an epicenter for the pandemic. And that’s why her other sister, Angela, wants Columbians to take the situation seriously.
