An Ohio woman who was diagnosed with COVID-19 and placed in a medically-induced coma still does not know that she gave birth to a baby boy last week. 

Megan Jeffries, a 27-year-old Celina-based nurse, gave birth to the newborn after doctors performed the emergency c-section on her, on April 9.

‘She doesn’t know that she had her baby, and her baby was delivered at 29 weeks,’ her sister-in-law, Kacie Jeffries, explained to WDTN.

Megan was seven months pregnant when she first tested for the virus after slowly developing the normal symptoms associated with COVID-19. 

But her brother, Shaun Jeffries, says that in the span of ’24 hours’ time, the way it progressed, it was mean. That’s the only way to put it: it was a mean virus.’

Shaun said that his sister was very much aware of how dangerous the virus was.

‘She was crying to my mom, saying she doesn’t want to die,’ he stated. ‘That right there tells you she knew enough and what she was going through.’

Her condition quickly grew worse, Kacie explained.   

She said: ‘Her lungs were just failing. In order to save her and her baby, they had to do an emergency C-section.’ 

The mother was sedated and put on an extracorporeal membrane oxygenation machine (ECMO). The ECMO machine oxygenates the blood by pumping it out of the body, through an artificial lung, and then back in.   

‘She doesn’t know that she had her baby, and her baby was delivered at 29 weeks,’ her sister-in-law, Kacie Jeffries said

She was seven months pregnant when she first tested for the virus after slowly developing the normal symptoms associated with COVID-19. The nurse also felt that she needed to work

Megan is now on a ventilator. Her baby boy have been tested for the virus twice and has tested negative each time

‘By then they’re saying that’s the last thing. That’s the last thing we can try and do,’ Shaun shared

Megan is now on a ventilator. Her premature baby boy have been tested for the virus twice and has tested negative each time. He remains in the NICU.

Her husband, Donny, was finally able to hold the baby three days after it was born.

‘Never in a million years would we have thought our 27-year-old sister would be infected with this virus and almost lose her life. People have got to take this seriously.’

The newborn has not been given a name as the family is hoping Megan will recover.
