ORANGE COUNTY, California– A well-known influencer hailing from Orange County, California, is currently in a medically induced coma and facing a critical condition after experiencing an aneurysm while being nine months pregnant.
Jackie Miller James, a digital creator who has garnered a significant following of nearly 50,000 on Instagram, was only a week away from her anticipated due date when the aneurysm ruptured, resulting in severe brain bleeding and injury.
Her situation is currently precarious as she receives medical care and remains in a coma.
After being found by her husband Austin, Jackie was rushed to a hospital, where doctors performed an emergency C-section and brain surgery at the same time.
The couple’s baby girl remained in the NICU for 12 days after her birth and is now being treated in the ICU along with her mother.
“Twelve days after this incident, Jackie remains in a medically induced coma and has undergone five separate brain procedures,” a GoFundMe set up to help pay for medical bills and other outside costs associated with long-term recovery said. “Jackie is expected to remain in the ICU for weeks and will continue to be hospitalized for months.”
The new mom was still in a coma when she met her baby for the first time.
