First Nations mom separated from her newborn because of COVID-19 says virus is ‘unbearable’ – APTN

Apr 30, 2021

Former APTN reporter Shaneen Robinson-Desjarlais is still in hospital where she says it feels like an elephant is sitting on her chest.

A First Nations woman in Winnipeg is urging others to take the COVID-19 pandemic more seriously after both her and her newborn son contracted the virus.

It’s been 16 days since Shaneen Robinson-Desjarlais gave birth to her third son, and she has spent about half that in hospital and away from him.

The Cree and Gitxsan mother says she has been in hospital for the past three days with a lung infection and COVID-related pneumonia.

This is her second time since giving birth she has had to be hospitalized.

Two days before giving birth she received a notice from her children’s daycare saying one of the workers tested positive.

About six days after giving birth she began to develop a migraine. She went to the hospital and was tested for the virus, which came back positive. She returned home but this week her condition worsened and she went back to the hospital.
