A Mother’s Gold

Educational Objective
To identify the key insights or developments described in this article
1 Credit CME

There was no putting aside the tragedy of a mother dying without her son—that would stay with me forever. But for these moments I was not only an intern navigating the tragedies of COVID-19, I was also the mother of a baby who depended on me.
