SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - Hours after giving birth to Eva, the little girl’s mother almost died.

In today’s Medical Moment, a warning for expectant moms.

Four million women in the U.S. give birth each year.

Fifty thousand of them face life-threatening complications that leave them wounded, weakened, traumatized and unable to have more children.

And now, as Martie Salt reports, one woman is on a mission to make sure expectant moms know the risk of the one complication that almost took her life.

Tonya tells new moms to ask their doctors about the risk.

She also organizes a blood drive every year to repay the gift of life she was given.
