An unvaccinated Tennessee woman has died from COVID-19 after a month-long battle with the virus that even required her to give birth prematurely.

Amanda Perry, 36, of Dickson County, Tennessee, succumbed to Covid on Monday, according to her family. 

She had not been immunized against the virus, though reportedly planned to get the jab after she had given birth.

Perry's family says she had suffered multiple miscarriages in the past and feared the vaccine would trigger another one.

Pregnant women are among the least vaccinated populations in the U.S. despite being among the groups at highest risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19.

Perry was 32 weeks pregnant when she contracted the virus, and required an emergency C-section to give birth to her son Nolan (pictured) 

'To know Amanda was to love her,' wrote Elizabeth Ratliff, a high school friend who organized a GoFundMe account on the Perry family's behalf.

'Her smile was contagious. Her warmth and kindness were felt by all who crossed her path. She truly had the sweetest soul and most tender heart.

'The love she had for her children and being their momma was boundless and evident in everything she did.'

Perry was 32 weeks pregnant when she was hospitalized with Covid pneumonia on September 15, her husband, Billy, told WKRN in Nashville.

Doctors at TriStar Centennial Medical Center in Nashville performed an emergency C-section on Amanda to save her baby.

The hospital was facing capacity issues, though, and she had to be airlifted to another facility in Richmond, Virginia, where she was placed on a ventilator. 

Billy traveled to Richmond to be with his wife and lived in a nearby apartment temporarily, a GoFundMe for the family reports.  

Amanda's symptoms included a high fever, mastitis (an inflammation of breast tissue), bacteria in her blood and a collapsed lung.

'We didn't have options. She was terrified. I was terrified, ' Billy told Newsweek

'Covid's a killer. You hear about it on TV all the time, but it never really hits home. Yeah, somebody you work with might get Covid but you don't know anybody that's having their whole world ripped apart because of it. 

'Then when it happens, it's awful. It came out of nowhere and it happened so fast.'

Once he realized his wife was not going to make it, Billy flew in Amanda's mother to say her final goodbyes. 

On Sunday, Amanda's condition deteriorated to the point where her death was inevitable, doctors told the family.

Billy, wanting his wife to die a painless death, elected to have the tube in her throat that was keeping her alive removed.

She would die a later, ending a battle with COVID-19 that lasted just over a month.

'I wish we had talked more about getting the vaccine,' Billy told Newsweek. 

'We weren't against it. We weren't anti-vax. When you're pregnant what do you do? There's not much research out there. She was freaking scared.'

Pregnant women are among the least vaccinated demographic in America, but are are among the highest risk of complications from Covid.

Despite being at an increased risk of sever complications from the virus, less than 35% of pregnant women in America are vaccinated for COVID-19
