A new mom calls herself a “miracle walking” and gives all the credit to God after she gave birth while in a medically induced coma because of COVID-19.
Angela Primachenko was 33 weeks pregnant when she thought she had Spring allergies. Two days later she started running a fever and visited the hospital where she worked. A week later she was on a ventilator and fighting for her life.
Her health deteriorated so badly she was put into a coma in a bid to help her fight for her life.
The 27-year-old Vancouver resident awoke on April 6, with her pregnant-belly flat after the symptoms of the illness had dissipated. Soon she found out that she had given birth while she was unconscious.
Primachenko, a respiratory therapist from Vancouver, Washington, woke up from the medically-induced coma on April 6th when her daughter was five days old – but only got to hold her for the first time once she was declared “COVID free” 10 days later.
“Obviously nobody expected that I was going to get that sick, so no, absolutely not, I did not expect to deliver my child,’’ she told Today.
“After all the medication and everything I just woke up and all of a sudden I didn’t have my belly any more. It was just extremely mind-blowing.”
After being released from hospital, Ms Primachenko was not able to hold her newborn whom she named Ava, until she tested negative for coronavirus twice.
Thankfully, Ava tested negative for COVID-19 after she was born and was kept in an intensive care unit to keep her safe, with Ms Primachenko’s husband staying by their bub’s side.
Primachenko told the Today Show that her story shows that “there’s hope” and that “even in the hardest days and the hardest times that there’s hope and you can rely on God and people and community. The amount of community and people that were praying for me is just unbelievable. I was blown away, and I’m so incredibly thankful.”
One special moment for Primachenko was when her colleagues showed up to cheer for her as she was dismissed from the intensive care unit. She said, “Everyone did a standing ovation and just clapped me out of the ICU, which was so amazing and such a huge thing to be able to leave the ICU and go to the floors.” She concluded, “It was just the grace of God,” Christian Headlines reports.
“Crying right now!!! IM COVA FREE!!! And holding my baby girl in my hands,” she said.
In an interview with KGW, she said that her faith sustained her through this difficult time. She told them, “I don’t know how to make it through without faith. Faith for healing, faith for life after death, faith for it all.”
