When a woman has a first child while studying at a university, she usually leaves her studies to be with her child and family, because she does not have enough time to study. But this young mother at the same time brought up a newborn baby, and successfully completed her studies at the university. She brought multitasking to a new level.
Nayzia Thomas is yet to finish psychology at Country Community College in Kansas when she found out that a baby’s on the way. Despite learning about her pregnancy, she never once thought of dropping out and she continued attending classes up until her 39th week of pregnancy.
Being a new mom didn’t stop this woman from finishing her studies.
She went to labor on her finals week so she took her assignment with her to the hospital and finished it just before she delivered her baby.
Her expected due date shouldn’t clash with her finals but her baby is apparently too excited to come out that she had to take her school tasks to the hospital as she goes into labor. While she could get permission to submit a final assignment after her delivery and receive a temporary “incomplete” mark until she accomplishes her requirements, Nayzia chose to cut the delay and opted to finish her tasks early.
Nayzia and her baby had a rough delivery, but they made it through and are now home.
Nayzia’s mom then took a photo of her laboring daughter finishing a grueling task of completing her assignment. The psychology student then posted the photo on Twitter and shared her difficult delivery as well as sharing about her son’s traumatizing post-delivery shock. Her story inspired many and received love from over 120,000 people on social media. She wrote:
“It wasn’t due until the end of the week — finals week is Dec. 11 to tomorrow — but my goal was to try to have everything done before [the baby came].
[I thought,] ‘before all this gets crazy let me hurry up and finish this final’.”
Nayzia didn’t want to quit school when she found out about her pregnancy.
The new mom later updated her followers, sharing how she lost a lot of blood during her delivery. She said she was so scared for her and her baby but with the help of her fiancée, everything went well.
“…We are blessed! AND I’m finishing the semester w/ a 3.5 GPA!”
After getting a final blood transfusion, Nayzia and her little family were already able to go home last Friday. She took time to post a photo of her own team and expressed her gratitude to those who supported her.
“…Thanks to everyone again for the positivity and love.
Its been hard trying to cope with being so close to death, but I can’t thank God enough for being able to share my story!!”
She continued to attend her Psychology classes until she was nearly due.
In an interview, Nayzia once again talked about her experience saying:
“These two males are my entire world. I had such a life-changing experience giving birth to our first born son, with the love of my life.
I used every ounce of strength, and right after he came out there was a “code RED”. I lost a serious amount of blood and went into shock and went unconscious. I don’t remember much, but I do remember seeing angels in my room about an hour before delivery.
I thought it was the medication, but now goes to show God knows my pure heart and he knew I’d give my life in order to make sure my son is healthy and happy. I am so thankful for all my family & friends, as well as the random people… Too blessed.”
Nayzia is defintiely an inspiration with her determination to succeed as a professional while being a loving mother to her new baby.
Indeed, Nayzia has an inspiring pregnancy experience and deserves an applause for her resilience and strong will. Apart from pursuing her studies full-time while carrying a baby, she also maintained three jobs plus an internship at an attorney’s office.
