Mom miraculously wakes up from coma to find she has given birth

SWEETWATER, Tenn. – A Tennessee woman who had been in a coma for over 4 months recently woke up and discovered she had given birth while she was comatose.

The accident happened back in December, according to WPVI-TV.

After a long night of driving, Sharista Giles had fallen asleep at the wheel on her way back home from a concert.

Giles suffered severe head trauma and doctors gave a less than 10 percent chance of full recovery, according to WPVI-TV.

At the time of the accident, Giles was approximately 5 months pregnant.

Weeks after the accident, Giles prematurely gave birth to her first child, Baby L, while she was comatose.

On Wednesday, the young mom opened her eyes for the first time in 4 months, “blinked and gave her family members’ hands a squeeze,” according to ABC News.

It was at that moment that Sharista learned she had given birth to her first child.

ABC News reports that it’s too soon to know Giles’ prognosis.
