Brain Dead Mother's Baby Born


As I have previously discussed, Robyn Benson, 32, of Victoria, Canada, has been kept on life support for the last month in order to save her baby.

At about 28 weeks along, Iver Cohen Benson was recently born.  The moment was bittersweet for his father, Dylan Benson, because greeting his newborn son meant saying goodbye to his wife.  Iver is healthy, but Dylan expects a “bumpy ride” for the preemie.
