Every birth story is unique, but some are more remarkable than others. Jackie Miller James, a 35-year-old Californian influencer, has recently made headlines for her incredible journey of motherhood. Her tale is one of resilience, love, and hope, and it has touched the hearts of many.

She was a few weeks away from giving birth.

Jackie was nine months pregnant when she suffered a brain aneurysm and collapsed. Her husband, Austin, found her and immediately took her to the hospital. Doctors had to perform an emergency C-section to save her baby’s life, and she remained in a coma for several weeks.

Jackie survived a brain aneurysm.

After enduring weeks of a medically induced coma, the new mom finally regained consciousness, and the long-awaited meeting with her baby boy unfolded before their eyes. This incredible moment, beautifully documented in a single photograph, was shared online, and in no time, it spread like wildfire across the globe. As people from all corners of the world came across her story, they were not only touched by her remarkable journey but also deeply inspired by her unwavering strength.

She had to endure five distinct brain surgeries.

The road to recovery has been long and difficult for Jackie, who required five separate brain surgeries as she remained on life support. She was expected to remain in intensive care for several months.

She is awake now.

However, her family has now confirmed that “Jackie is awake and was recently transferred to one of the best neurological rehabilitation hospitals in the country.” “The doctors have been pleased upon her latest tests, numbers, and evaluations, noting that Jackie is performing above expectations at this stage of her recovery,” they added.

Her family initiated a GoFundMe campaign.

Jackie’s family has set up a GoFundMe campaign to help cover her medical expenses, which has already raised more than $334,000. Natalie Miller explained her sister’s situation and her long road to recovery and invited people to donate and share the campaign with others.

There have been cases of coma births in the past.

Coma births are extremely rare but not without precedent. They come with both medical risks and complex ethical issues for the victim’s family to navigate. However, Jackie’s story is a testament to the power of love and the resilience of the human spirit.

As Jackie continues on her long road to recovery, we wish her and her family all the best. Her story is a reminder that even in the darkest of times, there is always hope.

And just like the Californian influencer, this 82-year-old Walmart worker’s life was changed by donations. With over $100K raised, he can finally retire — but it’s his incredible life story that gave us goosebumps.

they fact that they have to pay that amount of money themselves leaves me speechless. such a same that they don't have free healthcare. here in Spain all those treatments and everything else she may needed would have been done without paying a single euro. she's been holding for life and has to pay to get treated. so unfair.

I'm so happy that her and her son are doing well. What she has been through is nothing short of terrifying and it's a miracle that they're both here. I wish her continued success on her recovery journey and growing with her son and family. I hope they have immense joy and happiness in their lives.
