Marie McCausland gave birth to a baby boy, Jeffrey, on Mother’s Day of 2017.

McCausland, who is 28 and lives in Cleveland with her husband and son, returned to her work as an HIV researcher 10 weeks after her ordeal. But something wasn’t right. She’d just had a beautiful baby who had her own blue eyes, but she didn’t feel good.
