Pregnancy and birth, although they’re generally talked about as the most beautiful moments in a woman’s life, they’re also great challenges for the body and women can be at risk for losing their health, and sometimes, unfortunately, their life.
You never quite know how a mother’s body will go through labor, if her body will cope with the considerable challenge of bringing a child to the world, whether physicians will react timely to possible complications, and take appropriate decisions, etc.
Doug Pritchard, who survived a few moments of horror, found out about this painfully, when his wife, Melanie, went into labor. Up until this point, the 9 months of her pregnancy went according to plan, without any problems, so they both never imagined that anything could go wrong.
Unfortunately, when Melanie came to the hospital with her first contractions, it turned out that the woman’s life was in grave danger.
