A woman died of a rare post-childbirth complication yesterday, three days after giving birth to a healthy daughter. Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikva said the cause of death was apparently an embolism in her amniotic fluid. The woman, 33, entered the hospital in labor last Thursday, and when the birth failed to progress, doctors decided to perform a cesarean operation. Soon afterward, the woman's situation began deteriorating: Various bodily systems collapsed and she started hemorrhaging. Three further operations failed to stabilize her condition. (Yuval Azoulay)
I know that none of us were there so there is no way for us to know without all the details. But I can't help but be suspicious that this tragedy could have been avoided.
FYI: Medical care in Israel is very advanced.
C-section could also increase the risk:
I am so sorry for the loss of your friend.
It can also just happen for no obvious reason.
Neither answer will bring any more comfort.
Please make sure to send her information to Ina may Gaskin to be included on the mothers quilt project-- project to commemorate moms who die in childbirth.

Amy, dh and I have noticed 3 (yes, 3) reports of deaths from AFE in Israeli newspapers in the last month (another one today, thats 2 in 1 week). AFE is e, like 1 in 8,000 to much according to the research I did. Ya think they are using this as a blanket diagnosis for all the women who die in childbirth without another obvious cause????
