DETROIT — A mother of five with COVID-19 is in a medically-induced coma after giving birth to twins.

Jasmine Logan gave birth to the newborns on Nov. 17, a month early after doctors believed it would help in her battle against the coronavirus.

However, the early delivery did not help and Logan was put into the medically-induced coma, WJBK reports.

"Her lungs were so badly damaged that to simply breathe put too much stress on her heart and lungs which caused heart failure along with a host of many other medical complications." said Steve Logan, Jasmine's husband.

Steve has been forced to stop working to care for his family's five children, including a 6-year-old and twin 2-year-olds, all of whom have COVID-19.

Saying it's "embarrassing as it feels to ask," Steve Logan has started a GoFundMe account to help the family while he remains unable to work with Jasmine in the hospital and the kids at home.

Even if Jasmine is able to pull through, Steve says her path to being the mother she was will be a long one.

"She will have a long and tumultuous road to recovery, and possibly have life-lasting complications."
