During this pandemic and its associated quarantine, we can use all the good news we can get.
Enter “Baby Leah”—known as the “miracle preemie” who is “pulling off a second surprise on her doctors,” according to WNYW.
Her birth was a double-barrel miracle. She was 11 weeks early and “her mom was in a coma during birth because she was battling the coronavirus at the time”!
Born on April 8th by C-Section, Baby Leah, of course, was small–2 pounds and 15-ounces. But when she was released from the hospital in Mineola, N.Y. last Wednesday (surprising early), she’d nearly doubled her weight!
Her mom, Adriana Torres, only found out that she had a baby girl after she emerged from her coma, WNYW reported.
“Two days after the baby was born, the mom was out of coma and she came back on her 41st birthday, so she came and saw the baby for the first time and things started to brighten up,” said NYU Winthrop Hospital Dr. Nazeeh Hanna.

“The baby is leaving the hospital way earlier than we thought it would be. We are very happy for Leah that she is going home to her family.”
