Dr. Terry Halperin, whose husband Michael was killed earlier this year at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, has given birth to Mikaela Jane Davidson, who was named after her dad and shares his initials.
Mikaela was born on Saturday, April 4, and both she and mom are doing well, according to Brigham and Women’s. Mikaela has three siblings.
Halperin said in a statement, “Michael was very much looking forward to the birth of this beautiful baby girl. At a time when my children and I are completely heartbroken over the loss of Michael, we are finding joy in Mikaela’s arrival. We have been humbled and touched by the tremendous outpouring of love and support coming from family, friends, patients and all those kind-hearted souls who have been moved by Michael’s senseless death.”
