Sylipitiria. O Theos na tin anapafsi.
I am so sorry for your loss. This is a very tragic situation for your whole family and no doubt you have many questions about how this could happen. It seems senseless that women would die in childbirth in our modern era, but sadly they do - often because of preeclampsia (HELLP syndrome is considered a variant of preeclampsia.) Here is a link to more information about HELLP syndrome on our website. http://www.preeclampsia.org/health-info ... p-syndrome
Of course, we are not doctors and do not know the details of her medical case, but it sounds like they were attentive to her deteriorating situation. By the way, the word you were looking for is "dialysis" - the process where the blood is filtered through a machine because the kidneys no longer function properly. Depending on how much detailed information you want on HELLP syndrome, we can send you links to more scientific papers, too.
You may want to consult with other doctors in Greece who specialize in complications of pregnancy. I will have to look when I get back to my office, but I believe I have some names that I can send you. Are you in Athens?
We have other families who interact with our Foundation and some are on this Forum who have lost mothers due to preeclampsia and HELLP syndrome... you are not alone!
Sending my thoughts and prayers across the way to Ellatha!
(If you are more comfortable responding in Greek, I will do my best to translate and get back to you in Greek.)
