A 32-year-old foreign worker from the Philippines died Friday night at Rambam Medical Center immediately after giving birth to a baby girl, who is in good condition in the neonatal department, the hospital reported.
The woman was taken for a cesarean section because of a sudden change in the fetus's heartbeat. After the delivery, her blood pressure dropped suddenly, and despite the medical team's efforts to save her, she died.
Her body was taken to the L. Greenberg Institute of Forensic Medicine at Abu Kabir.
Members of K.L.'s family were invited to the hospital on Sunday morning and received a detailed explanation of what happened.
