NBC News White House Correspondent Carol Lee reports “harrowing birth” of her son with heart defect

by | Feb 6, 2022

After the “harrowing birth” of her second son Monty, NBC News White House Correspondent Carol Lee is back at work and reporting on everything from the Ukraine invasion to the Iranian nuclear deal. Seven-month-old Monty, who was born with a rare congenital heart defect, is healthy and home with Lee in Washington, D.C, reports MSNBC.

But instead of suppressing her experience, continues the report, “Lee, 44, is sharing her birth story. She hopes to spread awareness about working mothers who face traumatic births, and to advocate for women to take the time that they need.

““To me it’s helpful to hear the ugly stuff. It’s important to hear that it’s normal to have a difficult time, and that you don’t have to smile your way through it,” Lee told Know Your Value.

“After his birth, Monty underwent surgery at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia due to transposition of the great arteries, or TGA, a condition in which critical cardiac arteries have switched sides. Monty had difficulty breathing and eating when he was born, requiring feeding and oxygen tubes.”
