Maggie Sillero, from Texas, beat the novel coronavirus — then delivered healthy triplets at The Woman's Hospital of Texas.

The hospital representatives said on their Facebook page that Maggie, who was 28 weeks pregnant, showed up at the hospital on May 8 for her scheduled admission so she and her babies could be checked.

Maggie then received a COVID test. That was the standard in the admission procedure to protect patients and those who give care. Two days later, Maggie's care team arrived in her room to inform her that she was positive for the deadly virus.

She couldn't believe she was infected with COVID-19 because she had been quarantined at home since March 23. "As an incredibly kind and selfless person, Maggie's main concern was everyone but herself," the hospital representatives shared.

"She worried about the health of the triplets, her husband and their 5 year old son, as well as the nurses and physicians caring for her," they added.

Maggie was tested regularly in the hospital. She communicated with her loved ones via Facetime. Maggie's husband could not visit her because he was also positive for the virus.

On June 4, when she was in her 32nd week, Maggie received her second negative result. That means she was free of COVID-19. However, she didn't have a lot of time to celebrate because that morning, her ultrasound revealed one of her babies had her umbilical cord wrapped around her neck.

The three newborns — Isabella, Nathaniel, and Adriel — were delivered by emergency Caesarean section that afternoon. The doctors and nurses were astounded by how good Maggie did. She and her triplets were healthy and safe.

After one month, Isabella, Nathaniel, and Adriel keep on growing bigger and healthier by the day in the Level II NICU. Maggie has adjusted to her new routine of visiting them every day.

While it is hard to not have them at home, Maggie is OK with it because she knows they are getting the best possible care by a specialized team at The Woman's Hospital of Texas.
