A Texas mother is fighting for her life after she was intubated just days after giving birth to her first child despite being vaccinated.
Alexandra Chandler tested positive for COVID-19 before going into labor on January 9, according to a GoFundMe page. Three days after a successful c-section, Chandler and her son Beau returned home.
The next day Chandler and her son Beau began experiencing shortness of breath. Both Chandler and her newborn son went to the ER to undergo evaluation, but Chandler’s health began to rapidly decline.
After being intubated, Chandler experienced a double pneumothorax in which both her lungs collapsed. She now remains in the hospital fighting for her life and unable to see her newborn son.
