In Texas, a pregnant woman beat coronavirus and soon gave birth to healthy triplets.
Maggie, the mother of the triplets, posted on Facebook on Friday saying, “As a mom, you want to control, but right now, you have to accept that you don’t have control of everything.”
Maggie delivered her triplets in the Woman’s Hospital of Texas in Houston. According to the hospital, she was tested positive during a normal routine checkup on May 8 when she was 28 weeks pregnant.
Following the protocol, Maggie was tested for the virus which turned out to be positive after two days.
The hospital posted Maggie’s photo with her now weeks’ old babies on Instagram and Facebook.
Along with the photo, the hospital wrote,
Meet the #firecracker who beat #COVID19 during her 3rd trimester then delivered healthy #triplets with an attitude brighter than fireworks on the #FourthofJuly.
The hospital also said that Maggie was concerned about everyone else but herself. She was worried about her husband, her 5-year-old son, and her soon-to-be-born triplets.
After 5 COVID-19 tests, Maggie tested negative. Maggie learned during her weekly ultrasound that “Baby A’s” cord was wrapped around her neck, and she would have a C-section that day at 4 p.m.
Apparently, her husband also tested positive for the virus and was allowed nowhere near her. He didn’t receive his second negative test. Maggie’s mother was the only support system during her labor.
“At 4:51 p.m., “Baby A,” Isabella, was born at 3.11 lbs. At 4:53 p.m., “Baby B,” Nathaniel, was born at 3.7 lbs. Finally, at 4:55 p.m., “Baby C,” Adriel, was born at 2.1 lbs. ” the hospital said.
“The doctors and nurses were amazed by how well Maggie did. She and her babies, who arrived in perfect ABC order, were healthy, safe, and undeniably resilient.”
Maggie advised other mothers to take in their pregnancy one day at a time and don’t let the fear of coronavirus overpower their emotions. She said, “You have to let other people help you and remember you aren’t alone. Look forward to each day and celebrate every small victory.”
On June 6, Texas recorded its highest number of coronavirus cases. Since then, the state is fighting a battle against the soaring figures.
