Surrogate Mum Dies During Childbirth

Family Mourns the Passing of a Mom Who ‘Fought for Her Life’ While Giving Birth Via Surrogacy

A San Diego mom of two has tragically died after giving birth via surrogacy. This was the second surrogacy pregnancy for Michelle Reaves who “fought for her life” throughout the traumatic birth.

Though the baby girl was delivered successfully, Reaves faced one complication after another, according to the GoFundMe page set up on behalf of her family. Doctors tried to revive her, but she did not survive.

Andrea Axelson, a family friend, told Today that Reaves “began hemorrhaging” during the delivery. Reaves leaves behind her husband, Chris, and their two young children, Gage and Monroe.

“He’s completely lost without her,” Axelson told Today of Chris. “They had a great marriage. They were that Facebook couple that you envy.” Jaime Herwehe, who created the fundraiser for the family, wrote that Reaves will always be remembered for the love she gave her family.
