My daughter (28 years old) died 5 days after her first child was born, on July 5, 2004. She died at home in her sleep. No one really knows for sure why. She had a normal pregnancy and delivered by c-section. The baby was and still is healthy. The one thing the medical examiner's office told me was that she had giant cell sarcoidosis in her lungs which may have contributed to her death. The fact is that she had never been diagnosed with this condition, though she had seen several doctors for breathing difficulties in the preceding years. She had been told that she had "reactive airways", or "anxiety", or "panic attacks". In fact during her pregancy she went to the hospital for difficulty breathing and the result was that she was told to hold a paper bag to her mouth and this would help to stop "hyperventilating".

I hope to gain support to deal with this through this forum and that many people will write in with their stories.
