A woman is thanking God after she gave birth to her baby while in an induced coma.
Angela Primachenko has told of her experience with coronavirus after she gave birth to her baby girl, Ava, while in a medically-induced coma.
Primachenko lives in Washington, a state that has gotten a lot of attention as the Covid-19 outbreak has grown in the US. It’s where the country’s first coronavirus case was announced on January 21, where the first coronavirus-related death in the US occurred, and where a nursing home saw dozens of deaths early on in the pandemic.
Ava is still in the NICU, and Primachenko can’t meet her until she tests negative for the coronavirus.
Her sister has also set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for the family, which has seen just over $50,000 raised.
“I just want to hold her and hug her and love on her and catch up on the first few weeks I missed out on her,” said Primachenko, who also told her story to CNN affiliate KPTV.
“I believe because of the community and the people and everyone that believed in me,” she said, “God just did a miracle to have me and my baby be healthy through this.”
Primachenko’s twin sister, Oksana Luiten, took to Instagram, admitting the “dark time” challenged her faith and trust in God.
“My twin not only survived Covid-19 but also gave birth while being under an induced coma, I know, we all didn’t even know that’s possible,” she said.
“Feels surreal posting a picture with Angela next to me. The last two weeks I wasn’t sure if I would ever take a new picture with her. I cherish @angela_primo more then ever. She is pure gold and I wouldn’t want a world without her.”
