A friend of mine died while breastfeeding her baby. Has anyone ever heard of anything like this happening? No apparant medical cause found yet. Any information would be appreciated.

  • Blaze posts this to everyone. I'm sure I'll hear from her soon for saying this. ;-) I too am sorry to hear about your loss. I doubt very much if breastfeeding had anything to do with the death of your loved one. It was probably a coincidence. Without an autopsy, you may never know a cause. It's hard to live with uncertainty. You're in my thoughts & prayers.
