When Autumn and Zack Carver found out they were expecting their third child in 2021, they were overjoyed.
However, what they didn’t know was that giving birth to a son would be so incredibly difficult.
After being hospitalized with COVID-19, Indiana mother Autumn underwent an emergency cesarean surgery and made headlines when she finally held her newborn boy for the first time in over seven weeks.
On October 19, 2021, at 33 weeks pregnant, Autumn Carver, age 34, gave birth to her son Huxley via emergency C-section at a hospital in Indiana.
In August, the 34-year-old mother and her husband, Zach, were both found to have COVID. In contrast to Autumn, who only had a fever, Zach had to be put on a ventilator due to his respiratory difficulties.
The birth of her third child, a son named Huxley Carver, required a medical helicopter to transport her to Methodist Hospital. Autumn was taken off life support while Huxley stayed in the hospital for 10 days.
Nonetheless, Autumn persevered, and in around two months she was able to hold her newborn child for the first time.
Zach Carver, Autumn’s husband, said on Good Morning America, “It was very emotional, for myself and of course her parents and of course for Autumn. It’s why she is fighting so hard, so she can get home to our kids.”
Her husband gushed about how his wife was the kindest, most loving person he had ever met.
Zach wrote on Facebook, “A surprise conversation with a doctor this morning brought us out of isolation and a plan for Autumn to meet Huxley. Same convo advised us that Autumn Carver’s tracheotomy would be switched out to a smaller one so she could have a speaking devise attached to it.
“At 3 pm today she met our son and it was an amazing moment needless to say. Her parents, one of her best friends and many nurses and doctors witnessed the special moment. I don’t know if there was a dry eye in the area. Later this afternoon I got to hear Autumn say ‘I love Zach’. What an amazing day.
“We have a long way to go, but a good day through this was much needed. Autumn says thank you for all the prayers and support along the way. God bless you.”
Next, the mother of three was transferred to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago. According to FaithTap, her lungs are in very bad shape and she may need a transplant.
In a November 17 update, Zach said, “She is getting stronger and able to walk around our room without a walker more and more.
“We went from she’s going to die, to she’s going to need a full lung transplant to she’s going to go home,” he said. “It’s an absolute miracle.”
It’s a miracle, and it shows how strong this mother is, that she is recovering so that she can be there for her children.
