An unvaccinated emergency room nurse has died due to complications of COVID-19, leaving behind five children β€” including a newborn baby who was born after the mother was intubated.

Davy Macias, a nurse with Kaiser Permanente in Oakland, California, contracted COVID-19 while seven months pregnant and never got the chance to hold her youngest daughter.

Now her husband Daniel is fighting for his life against the same virus as their family raises funds for their children.

Davy was unconscious when her baby was delivered at 32 weeks, and she succumbed to illness on Thursday before getting to meet the newest addition to the family.

‘My mom and I went to see her one last time on that bed… that’s an image that’s going to stay with me,’ Davy’s sister, Vandana Serey, told KABC.

‘She touched everybody’s life. When she’s there, she’s an advocate for all of her patients. It’s always for the benefit of the patient and the babies. She’s a great and an amazing woman.’

Her colleagues are also singing her praises, pouring in words of support on Facebook and a GoFundMe page that has raised over $100,000.

‘Davy was the best,’ wrote one. ‘She was such a joy to see at work, always willing to help, always so kind and positive, and she always brought us food.

‘She has spoken up and defended me when I needed it. I will miss her greatly. I will be continually praying for her husband and her little ones. Davy, thank you for your kindness and joy. I will always treasure my memories of you.’

‘Davy was a GREAT mother who adored her children,’ wrote another colleague on Facebook. ‘She was an EXCELLENT nurse who cared for others. Her Kaiser, family, and friends have lost a good one. She was an overall good person. I feel blessed to have know and worked beside her.’

Her husband, Daniel, remains in critical condition ‘but he is fighting to stay here with his babies,’ according to the GoFundMe page.

Vandana said that he managed to send her a text message from the hospital.

‘He was trying to breathe and said, if anyone is not vaccinated, I suggest you do now,’ she said.

Meanwhile, the couple’s newborn is thriving.

‘Baby Macias is doing fantastic. She has gained a whole lb since last week and she is alert and has even cracked a little smile,’ the family said.

While Davy was unvaccinated, she did speak out about being ‘cautious’ in a Facebook post in January, in which she also detailed the stress of being a nurse during the pandemic.

‘I’ve been an OB RN for 11 years. This month I’ve floated almost every shift to a COVID unit. I floated to covid med surge and covid ICU, too many COVID shifts for my liking, but at the end of the day, I am grateful,’ she wrote.

‘I’m grateful for my family that I get to come home to and I’m grateful for our health. Although my exposure is at an all time high, I pray every day that God continues to watch over my family. I’m grateful for the kick-a** nurses I get to work along side.’

She went on to discuss the loss she had seen as people died of the virus.

‘COVID does not discriminate and it’s a scary place in the hospitals right now. Nurses are tired, we have anxiety before going to work, we sit in our cars and we cry after our long shifts,’ she wrote.

‘We mourn for the patients and the families. We don’t sleep for a few nights after our shifts because the cries of the grieving family still linger in our thoughts.

‘Please be safe and just a little extra cautious until we get through this pandemic!’ she concluded.

Three out of four of whom in the US are unvaccinated.

The CDC has recommended the vaccine for pregnant women, and pointed out that COVID-19 can be particularly dangerous for them.

COVID-19 can cause pregnant women to deliver prematurely, and one doctor told GMA that her hospital has seen more stillbirths among COVID-positive pregnant patients.
