I wrote the husband and he said that he is waiting for the coroner's report before saying for sure it was from preeclampsia--but that is what they believe. Very sad. Did anyone see a date when this happened?

... when she was overtaken by pregnancy complications and passed away. Baby Mariah did not survive. Mika was just 28 years old.

You are right. It doesn't say pre eclampsia! The above is
a quote. It just says pregnancy complications.

Where? I've read it three times, and I don't see it anywhere.[?]

It's in there. You just have to read it carefully to find
it. I agree. The cause of her death should appear
more in the forefront.

Maybe it's just me, but I find the absence of the word preeclampsia disturbing. I know the site is meant as a tribute to her life, not a source of medical information, but it doesn't help anyone to dance around the truth. How she died is important, and omitting the cause of death just reinforces the popular misconception that preeclampsia is rare or is rarely fatal.

We hear of at least one a month. I am sad to say--we believe it is more like one a week. That is why I am always urging our women to err on the side of caution.

How sad, sure does make me scared that here in the US there can still be deaths.

This is very sad, but where does it say that she had preeclampsia? "Complications" could be anything.
