In 2019 Carly Corinthos learned that she was pregnant with her fourth child. She picked Dr. Sofia Navarro as her OB/GYN. Sofia was on staff at GH, and she advised Carly to undergo a series of tests because of Carly's age and medical history.
Carly is in danger after Ryan Chamberlain kidnaps her. She ended up in an embankment and tries to climb up but falls. The second time she gets all the way up, starts to slip but Jason Morgan catches her. She goes to the hospital, where it is revealed that she and the baby are just fine.
In April 2019, Carly has genetic testing done on the baby.
On June 28, 2019, it is revealed that the baby has developed fluid around her spine, which could potentially cause some serious problems for the child. It will also cause Carly to have a C-section instead of a regular birth.
On July 25, 2019, Sonny Corinthos and Carly meet with Dr. Navarro for the ultrasound. She notices something during the procedure and tells them she needs to consult with a colleague and will be right back. She returns later and explains their child has Spina Bifida Myelomeningocele, a birth defect involving an improperly fused spinal cord.
They won’t know the severity until closer to birth, and while many children go on to live full lives, some have complications that can include cognitive development issues. Carly will have to deliver by cesarean, and they will continue to monitor the child. She will also need to perform immediate surgery 2 to 48 hours after birth.
Donna Corinthos was born prematurely via c-section on September 30, 2019. After she was born, Dr. Navarro let the happy parents know that after examining the baby, that her Spina Bifida wasn't as bad as they thought but she still needed surgery which was successful.
