‘I Feel Like I’m A Miracle Walking’—Mom Gives Birth While in Medically Induced Coma for Coronavirus

A 27-year-old COVID-19 patient from Vancouver, Washington is being called a “walking miracle” this week after giving birth to her daughter, while fighting for her life in a medically-induced coma.

Angela Primachenko was 33 weeks pregnant when she tested for the novel coronavirus on March 24, after experiencing a fever and other COVID-19 symptoms.

Just eight days later, she was fighting for her life in the ICU. Breathing through a ventilator, Primachenko found herself in a medically induced coma.

To ensure she had the best chance of survival, while also protecting her unborn child, doctors at Legacy Salmon Creek Medical Center induced labor at 34 weeks. And while her body was being supported completely by machines, fighting a virus that has ravaged the world, Primachenko gave birth to a healthy baby girl.

Her twin sister, Oksana Luiten, had been keeping family and friends updated throughout the frightening ordeal, asking for prayers on Instagram for a “miraculous healing.”
