INDIANAPOLIS — It was quite a moment for an Indiana mother who held her newborn for the first time after his birth nearly two months ago.

Autumn Carver held her baby, Huxley, Tuesday afternoon, and her husband said there wasn't a dry eye in the room.

Carver has been in the hospital following since giving birth to Huxley on Aug. 27. The mother of three contracted COVID-19 after she made a decision to not get vaccinated following multiple miscarriages last year.

She remains at a local hospital and as soon as she makes more improvements, she is set to be transferred to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago where doctors will take a closer look at her lungs to determine if she needs a double-lung transplant.

Autumn Carver held her infant son, Huxley, for the first time since his birth in August.
