According to the CDC, the maternal death rate in the united states, 18 deaths for every 100,000 births — nearly double that of the rate on the 30 or so years ago.

A grief-stricken family, based in Colorado, is cope with the unexpected loss of a 26-year-old mother, who died during an emergency surgery a few hours after the birth of the twins. Sarah Sewald, who according to a close relative have had pre-eclampsia, was put into operation on the 29th of May and the bleeding, according to Dustin Sisneros, the wife of his father.

“She said that she had a bit of bleeding and, you know, and that they were going to do what they could to stop it,” Sisneros, who had been with the Sewald for more than three years old, she told KKTV. “You know, I wasn’t really nervous. She said not to worry, it’s kind of normal, and we have it under control.”


But at a certain point, the surgeons ran into complications.

“They had to put her back in the ICU, and feed on its blood and put her on oxygen,” Sisneros told KKTV. “You know, they had sedated her, and prepared her for surgery to get, you know, get back to health… unfortunately, it was a complicated operation. It’s hard to ask for a lot of the details of what had happened to it.”

Sisneros, who have been spending so much time with his newborn baby, Charlotte, and Ryan, if he can, and has, an outpouring of support from the community. According to the family’s GoFundMe page, on the baby have not been released from the hospital yet.

“It’s one thing to understand is that people can make a donation if a person dies trying to help the family, but this … this is just mind-blowing for him, and how it began to spread like wildfire, and everyone is out for him,” Justin Spellman, Sewald’s half-brother, told The Newspaper.

Spellman said Sewald had been diagnosed with pre-eclampsia during the pregnancy. The condition can lead to high blood pressure, protein in the urine, and is usually ruled out due to the pregnancy, high blood pressure, according to the American Pregnancy Association. Even though it was only for about 5 to 8 percent of the pregnancy, it can lead to serious complications if not treated quickly and properly.


Severe pre-eclampsia can lead to headaches, blurry vision, inability to tolerate bright light, fatigue, nausea, urinating small amounts, pain in the upper right abdomen, shortness of breath, and a tendency to bruise easily. Pregnant women who are suffering from blurred vision, severe headache, abdominal pain, or frequent urination are encouraged to contact their doctor immediately.

Pre-eclampsia can prevent the placenta from getting enough blood, which can result in less oxygen and food for the baby. The majority of women who are diagnosed with the condition go on to deliver healthy babies with proper treatment. There is no way to prevent the disease, but there are a number of risk factors have been associated with the development of pre-eclampsia, such as in the early stages of pregnancy, experience of pregnancy, hypertension, pre-eclampsia, family history, and the execution of several babies, age, and obesity.

Mother’s death from the disease is very rare in the developed world, according to the preeclampsia Foundation, but it continues to be a major cause of morbidity and mortality in mothers, around the world. The data collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has found that there has been a rise in the amount of pregnancy-related deaths in the united states. from 1987 until the end of 2015.

It is recorded of 7.2 deaths per 100,000 live births in 1987, and found it will jump to 17.2 deaths per 100,000 live births by 2015. The CDC has noted that the reasons for the increase in the number of pregnancy-related mortality is not clear, however, that “substantial racial/ethnic differences in pregnancy-related mortality persist.”

The family’s GoFundMe page, which as of Wednesday had raised more than $43,000 to Sisneros, and the twins, did not have an official cause of death for Sewald.


Sisneros, told KKTV that he will tell his kids about their mother, each and every time he sees them.

“Every time I see them, I tell them their mom loves them and she gives me a smile, so I know for sure is that it means that they can see, and she was in the room with us and she’s over there,” he told the news outlet. “It’s just so awesome. I will make sure her memory will live forever.”
