  • This is Precious Anderson.

  • She was pregnant.

  • About two months before her due date,

  • she had severe Covid-19.

  • Actually so severe that her baby

  • had to be delivered by C-section

  • to try to save both of their lives.

  • In fact, she couldn't actually visit her baby.

  • Here you go, Precious.”

  • And then it was amazing because we got to watch her

  • video chat with a nurse who was with her baby,

  • and Precious Anderson got to see her baby, David.

  • Wonderful, right?”

  • He's so handsome, Precious. He's very handsome.”

  • We actually went to visit him and he was moving around,

  • he was stretching, pointing his toes like a little dancer.

  • He was so, so cute.

  • Actually he tested negative for Covid.

  • At this hospital, seven of the pregnant women

  • who tested positive for Covid have given birth,

  • and their babies have generally done very well.

  • None of them have been confirmed to have Covid.

  • I'm Sheri Fink.

  • I'm a correspondent at The New York Times.

  • For the past several weeks,

  • Victor Blue, a photographer, and I

  • have been able to spend time at the Brooklyn Hospital Center.

  • And for the story published this week, we spent time

  • with pregnant mothers

  • on maternity and in the intensive care unit.

  • Dr. Erroll Byer is the Chair of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

  • And he said that this moment,

  • which should be such a joyful moment in a family's life,

  • bringing new life into the world,

  • that, in fact, now it's anxiety provoking.

  • How you doing?”

  • What struck me was people doing the typical things

  • you would do on a maternity ward,

  • but doing them with masks, with face shields,

  • with gloves, with gowns.

  • Many, many of the staff members

  • on the maternity ward and in the neonatal I.C.U.

  • are out sick.

  • So there is a level of fear.

  • Basharrie McKenzie was also on the intensive care unit.

  • And she's pregnant, and she got very sick with Covid.

  • She was so afraid.

  • And of course, it's really hard because you're alone.

  • You can't have any visitors.

  • When I met her this Monday, she was so much improved.

  • My three-year-old daughter keeps me going.”

  • And she was able to continue her pregnancy.

  • Your respirations are pretty OK.

  • OK?

  • Very good.”

  • So, there are a lot of very sad stories with Covid-19 —

  • people in the intensive care unit

  • many, many of them not making it.

  • So it was amazing to see this young woman,

  • who had been so, so sick,

  • was able to pack up her bags and actually go home.

  • And she's one of the success stories.

  • You made it.

  • You're telling a great story, honey.”

  • We're proud.”

  • You got to have heart, and you had it.

  • So we're very proud of you.”

  • Thank you for allowing us to take care of you.”

  • Thank you.”

  • I spoke with the intensive care unit doctors,

  • and they said when people like Ms. McKenzie

  • get to leave the hospital, get to come off a ventilator,

  • out of an intensive care unit, and recover enough to go home

  • that it's giving them the energy to keep going.

This is Precious Anderson.
