Autumn and Zack Carver were overjoyed and extremely happy to learn they were expecting their third child in 2021.
They had no idea that the birth of their son would be so difficult until it happened.
Autumn, a mom from Indiana who gave birth via emergency cesarean section whilst also being treated in the hospital for COVID-19, earned national headlines when she could finally hold her son for the first time in more than seven weeks after giving birth.

On October 19, 2021, at the same hospital in Indiana where she delivered her son Huxley on August 27, 2021, via an emergency C-section when she was 33 weeks pregnant, Autumn Carver, age 34, gave her son Huxley a hug for the very first time.
In August, the pregnant woman, who was 34 years old, and her husband Zach, who was also 34, tested positive for COVID. Zach had a fever, but Autumn had lung complications and needed to be put on a ventilator. Zach was sick with a fever.
She was flown to Methodist Hospital and gave birth to Huxley Carver, her first son, and third child. Huxley was admitted to the hospital and stayed there for 10 days, whereas Autumn was put on life support.
But Autumn didn’t give up, and after a fight that lasted nearly two months, she finally got to hold her new baby for the first time.
Zach Carver stated that it was very emotional for him and her parents, Autumn, and her spouse, which is why she is fighting so hard to get back to our kids.
Her husband said that his wife was the kindest and most affectionate person he had ever met and that her smile could make a dark room seem bright.
Zach made the joyful news public on his Facebook page by writing, “A surprise conversation with a doctor this morning brought us out of isolation and a plan for Autumn to meet Huxley. The same convo advised us that Autumn Carver’s tracheotomy would be switched out to a smaller one so she could have a speaking device attached to it.
“At 3 pm today, she met our son, which was an amazing moment. 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 heard 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.”
After that, the woman, a mother to three, was transferred to the Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago. According to FaithTap, the condition of her lungs is very poor, and she may require a lung transplant at some point in her life.
On Nov. 17, Zach posted an update on his wife’s condition: “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, so she’s going to need a full lung transplant, so she’s going to go home,” he said. “It’s an absolute miracle.”
It is truly a miracle, and it shows this mother’s strength to recover so that she can be there for her children; I am overjoyed that this supermom is on the path to recovery.
