Iver Benson will never get to know his mom, who was five months pregnant when declared legally brain dead and kept on life support so that doctors could perform a life-saving c-section.

Robyn Benson in the days following Christmas complained to her husband of severe headaches until one day he went out to get her pain medicine, only to return and find her unresponsive.

In a teary Facebook update, Robyn’s husband and Iver’s father posted the news that Iver had been born but his wife ultimately taken off life-support.

“On Saturday evening, my beautiful and amazing son, Iver Cohen Benson, was born. Iver is healthy and is the cutest and most precious person I have ever met. As to be expected, it will still be a bumpy ride for he and I as he continues to grow under the care of the wonderful staff at the hospital,” Dylan Benson wrote on Facebook.
