Mother delivers baby three months early after being left in a near-fatal coma by covid-19



A pregnant woman gave birth to her son three months earlier than her due date after being left in a near-fatal coma by covid-19.



Kassidy Hazelton, from Arizona, delivered her son Kash on May 31, just a couple of weeks after she contracted Covid-19 after she refused to get a vaccine because she was pregnant.



Initially when the 37-year-old caught the virus, she developed pneumonia, ending up in a coma and forcing doctors to deliver her baby via an emergency c-section.







Speaking to Fox News, Kassidy said she was unsure about getting the jabs because of possible side effects knowing fully well she was pregnant at the time.



She said: ‘Once my temperature started to get out of control, that’s when I started to get worried. I was scared.’






‘Vaccines were just released and I did not feel comfortable yet’, she said on a fundraising page set up to help with medical costs.


‘Within five months of pregnancy I contracted it and became very ill.


‘I had to be sedated and put in induced a coma while pregnant.’



With doctors scared she won't make it, they decided to deliver her baby at just 28 weeks, almost three months early, by c-section.


‘They kept the baby in there as long as they could, but I wasn’t getting better and in order for me to survive or even him they had to take him out’, Kassidy said.



Kash weighed just under 1kg when he was born and was immediately rushed to a neonatal intensive care unit, where he will remain until at least his due date of August 20.



Kassidy added: ‘I was still in a coma when he was born.Latest Post
