Postmortem Birth

Bradley Mattes   |   June 03, 2013

Can a woman give birth while being dead? Well, technically, yes. Erica Nigrelli is a high school English teacher in Missouri. She was over eight months pregnant and told a fellow teacher she felt faint, passed out, and her heart stopped beating. Her husband, Nathan, is a teacher in the same school and was only doors away. He came running when he heard the commotion and called 911. Other teachers performed CPR and attempted to revive her with a defibrillator. Paramedics soon arrived and took her to the hospital while continuing to perform CPR. Once at the hospital, doctors continued CPR and delivered Erica’s daughter via an emergency caesarian. Everybody’s now fine, but Erica did it the hard way by giving birth postmortem. The Lord moves in mysterious ways.
