Mother Gives Birth To Twins While Brain Dead

A 26-year-old pregnant mom from Michigan suffered a deadly aneurysm and was pronounced brain dead last month, but was still able to give birth to her twin boys April 17. What a miracle!

This is a tragic story with a bittersweet ending. Christine Bolden — a 26-year-old Minnesotan, who was healthy and pregnant with twins — was walking with her family last month, when she fell and suffered a deadly aneurysm.

Doctors declared Christine brain dead, but her body remained on life support and housed her twin boys — Alexander and Nicholas — until they were brought to 25 weeks and were incredibly born April 17.

“Christine’s grandmother told them not to numb her because maybe when they cut her (for the C-section) she would have felt that, and woke up saying, ‘wait a minute I can feel that! What is you all doing to me!’ But it didn’t happen,'” Christine’s aunt, Danielle Bolden, told WOODTV8. “God could have took her and the boys. But he left the boys. That’s a miracle.”

She added, “Once the babies were born; that was the end of her.”

The twins were born premature and barely weighed more than one pound a piece. That said, they are expected to live — which is quite the miracle.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Christine’s family, her boyfriend and her three year old son.

Mother’s death brings new life:
