Beitar Ilit Woman Dies of Pregnancy Complications

A mother of nine from Beitar Ilit died, Thursday evening, about a week after a Caesarian section dictated by severe pre-eclampsia in her 31st week of pregnancy. The boy who was delivered was listed in stable condition in the premature-baby ward at Sha'arei Tzedek Hospital in Jerusalem.

Further complications dictated the woman's transfer to Hadassah Ein-Kerem Hospital, where she was declared brain dead and put on a heart and lung machine.
