Coma did not stop the American [giving birth to a full-term baby]
A resident of Fresno, California, despite more than two months of coma, safely gave birth to a full-term baby. The woman was in the seventh month of her first pregnancy when she started having severe headaches. The scan showed that the woman had a benign brain tumor. The doctors managed to remove the tumor, but after the operation the patient fell into a coma.

A resident of Fresno, California, despite more than two months of coma, safely gave birth to a full-term baby, according to the local newspaper The Fresno Bee.
Melissa Carleton, 39, developed severe headaches shortly after the start of her first pregnancy. The scan revealed that the woman had a benign brain tumor that was growing rapidly. On March 11, when Melissa was seven months old, doctors at the University of California, San Francisco hospital had to undergo emergency surgery to remove the tumor, but the patient fell into a coma. The woman's condition, however, is not completely unconscious - she opens her eyes from time to time, moves her arms and facial muscles.
At first, the doctors did not hope that they would be able to extend Melissa's pregnancy to full term, but it did, and on May 22, with the help of a caesarean section, her completely healthy, full-term son West Nathaniel, weighing 2.5 kilograms and growing 48 centimeters, was born …
Doctors refuse to make predictions about Melissa's future condition. Her husband, Brian Land (Brian Lande), said that he is going to keep the connection between mother and son as much as possible - spread it on her stomach, providing skin-to-skin contact, apply it to her breast, in the hope that it will facilitate Melissa's recovery from coma and the normal development of the baby. According to him, after giving birth, the wife began to show more activity than before, which gives some hope for an improvement in her condition.
