The young Victorian mum is fighting for her life in a Melbourne hospital after contracting a deadly flu.
Sarah Hawthorn is said to have been battling influenza A during the final stages of her pregnancy.
Due to the condition, she still does not know she has given birth to a beautiful baby boy.
Hawthorn's family has since set up a GoFundMe page to help the mother writing on the page: 'During the later stages of Sarah's pregnancy she caught the flu. As a result her gorgeous boy arrived earlier than planned and following his birth Sarah was, and remains, in a critical condition in an induced coma.'
The family so far have reached $18,000 within a day.
The sad news comes after eight-year-old Melbourne girl Rosie Brealey lost her life to the deadly flu on Friday.
