Brooke Blanchard is a woman who got burned while pregnant during the train crash.
Brooke and her friend, Jana, whom she'd known since third grade, decided they wanted to be parents, but they didn't have romantic partners, so they decided to find a sperm donor, get pregnant, and they'd raise their children together.
When they were nine months pregnant, Jana and Brooke were in a train crash. Jana had only a laceration that needed stitches, but Brooke was seriously burned. While she was being treated for her burns, Brooke went into labor and was told she'd need a c-section because her burns meant she was in no condition to push. Brooke asked for a lawyer, so she could sign paperwork ensuring that their son would go to Jana if she died. While she was in surgery, Jana labored and delivered her baby.
She and Jana have a son and a daughter together.
She and Jana have been best friends since third grade. When they decided they wanted children, they found a sperm donor and decided to raise their kids together. She gave birth to their son while Jana gave birth to their daughter.
