Doctors believe a newborn baby who was born in Toronto contracted the coronavirus while in utero. Sadly, this is not the first case of coronavirus that was suspected to have been transmitted while the baby was in the womb.
A mom writes in asking for advice about her husband, who is likely an alcoholic. She says he drinks a 6-pack of beer every day, and much more on the weekends. He does not work, his memory has degraded, he refuses to admit he has a problem or seek help, and he tells her to accept him as he is. This mom may be reaching the end of her rope and is looking for advice.
“She ultimately ended up having to be placed on the ventilator because of the profound nature of the shortness of breath and has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. Unfortunately, she went into preterm labor and ultimately delivered the baby prematurely. And in doing so, the baby, because of the extreme prematurity, did not survive.”
