- A mother dies moments after giving birth to triplets
- The mother-of-four developed rare complication post birth
- Her husband will now have to take care of the triplets alone
A 34-year-old mum from New Zealand dies of an extremely rare complication moments after giving birth to bouncing triplet boys.
The mother-of-four, identified as Chervonne Magaoa, reportedly conceived her three babies via IVF and carried them until they were born. She successfully gave birth through C-section but developed serious complications hours later.
“The babies arrived at around 5.30 pm. Everything seemed perfectly fine until the complication that claimed her life,” says Bishop Hyran, her father.
Doctors said she suffered from an extremely rare medical condition known as amniotic fluid embolism, which reportedly affects only one in every 100,000 women worldwide.
Her husband, Martin Magaoa, will now have to take care of the three boys, who have since been named Carson, Aayden, Blaise. He is also left with a six-year old daughter.
Family friends, Jan Lesuma and Billy Racule, have started a GoFundMe page to raise some funds to support Martin and the now motherless kids.
