Woman dies after giving birth
In other similar news, a woman recently died of COVID-19 moments after giving birth via emergency cesarean section.
According to her elder sister Charles Carol, the mom of nine, Rosebluff Thomas Jennifer, was unvaccinated.
Jennifer never got to meet her newborn baby girl.
Speaking to CBC News, Carol said that Jennifer slipped into a coma moments after the surgery and never woke up. She, however, was able to talk to her elder sister Carol right before she lost consciousness.
Carol noticed that her sister was scared in that short conversation.
Jennifer was then put on life support to try and give her time to recuperate, but this did not help.
The sad elder sister remembered Jennifer, a beautiful, vibrant woman who lived for her children until she died of COVID-19 in an Edmonton ICU on September 3.
