Tragedy! Mother Passes Away Hours After Giving Birth To Miracle Quadruplets — The Facebook Posts She Wrote Before She Died Will Break Your Heart


Erica Morales and her husband Carlos of Phoenix, Arizona had spent years trying to conceive. After IVF treatment last year, Erica found out she was pregnant with quadruplets. A month before her due date, she was rushed to the hospital with high blood pressure. The doctors checked her in to monitor her and not long after, she delivered the three girls and one boy. Heartbreakingly, she died hours after delivery due to unknown reasons. 
Excitement: They shared this picture on Facebook as they neared their February due date this year

She [Erica] wrote on Facebook: 'He [the doctor]said I have to get admitted until delivery. It's been down lower today but it's too late.
'He will keep me and he ordered some labs.
'He will push deliver up or stall it to to 34 weeks. I'm 31 tomorrow. He said I did phenomenal. A poster child for quads. He wish they could all go this way but this last part we have to do it carefully because u can stroke out with bad blood pressure. I'm sure I won't but he looking at how to finish things.'
After explaining that it would definitely be a premature birth, Mrs Morales added: 'I always want more but sometimes you just have to sit back and thank God for blessing up to this point and put it fully in his hands. Thanks for the prayers and everything else.'
Tragic.
Thankfully, the children are all alive and healthy, and her family and friends are raising money for Carlos, who is now facing raising four babies alone.

Her cousin and best friend Christina Todman told Fox 10: 'This is all they wanted, to have this family, to make their family complete. It's like that fairytale story.'
After conceiving, the couple registered the planned birth and bought everything needed for the nursery to welcome their children home.
'It is so hard to know she fought so hard for her children. She will never get to brush their hair, hold their hand, watch them get married, none of that will ever happen for her,' Mrs Morales' cousin Nicole Todman told Fox 10.
'She never got to hold them, she never got to see them.
'We'll have to remember her, we'll have to tell her kids who she was, we'll have to make sure they know how wonderful a person she was, how loving and how much she wanted them, and how much she loved them.'
