One thing 1000-Lb. Sister fans may have not concerned is the fact that Amy Slaton Halterman is giving birth amid the COVID pandemic. During tonight’s episode, the topic of COVID-19 and quarantine comes up. Does Amy, Michael, or Tammy have COVID-19? Is the baby at risk because of the virus? Fortunately, we’ve watched the episode early. And, we can explain.
Warning: This contains spoilers from Season 2, Episode 9 titled “Labor of Love.”
Wait, so does Amy, Tammy, or Michael have COVID-19?
After returning home from the hospital, Amy Slaton Halterman calls her sister Tammy. She has a few scary things she learned from the doctors to share. Tammy, however, admits she’s a little confused. Why didn’t her sister just come over to tell her this information? Why did she FaceTime her instead?
Amy explains that she didn’t have a choice. And, she wouldn’t be able to see her sister Tammy in person for a while. Turns out, Amy Slaton Halterman and her husband Michael would have to quarantine prior to her giving birth to Gage.
Fortunately, 1000-Lb. Sisters can rest easy knowing we do not believe Michael, Amy Halterman, or even Tammy Slaton have COVID. That isn’t the reason for the quarantine. Furthermore, Amy goes on to explain to Tammy why she is going to have to stay away for a while.
Amy Halterman explains giving birth during a pandemic changes things
According to Amy Halterman, her doctor revealed there is a huge issue with parents bringing a baby into the world. And, testing positive for COVID-19 shortly afterward. For obvious reasons, this creates a serious health risk for the baby. So, the doctors urged Amy Slaton Halterman and her husband Michael to quarantine until she comes in to give birth to the baby.
Amy also explains that unless something changes, the plan is for her to have a C-section at this point. Turns out, little Gage is breech. And, unless he turns around… A C-section is their only option at this point.
Fortunately, it doesn’t sound like anyone has COVID-19 at this point in the episode. It is just an extra precaution to create as safe of an entry into the world as possible for Amy and Michael’s baby boy. Here’s hoping Tammy does alright being kept at a distance!
What most believe to be the Season 2 Finale of 1000-Lb. Sisters airs tonight only on TLC. But, the episode is already available via discovery+. So, if you can’t wait for the episode to air… You can always head over there to check it out early!
