Comatose Swine Flu Victim Loses Baby

From News4Jax:

WELLINGTON, Fla. — A 22-year-old is in a coma at a local hospital with swine flu and her prematurely born baby is dead.

Claudia Hernandez was eight months pregnant and diagnosed with swine flu last week. She was admitted to a Palm Beach County hospital last Wednesday and that’s when doctors delivered the infant prematurely.

The baby lived five days. Hernandez doesn’t know her baby died because she is in a coma; family members said doctors have told them that the woman’s life is also in danger.

This disease is deadly in pregnant women and to their infants. Get your vaccination if you are pregnant.

    Eight months isn’t all THAT premature, the majority of babies born then survive and thrive. This is SO sad…

    Very, very sad. My son was born at 8 months and, aside from being a bit underweight, was fine.
