There was this short piece in the news about a young mother who died ten weeks after her baby was born. She had stomach cancer but her pregnancy caused the doctors to misdiagnose the symptoms. She had abdominal pains and the doctors just assumed it was because of her pregnancy. When the pain got worse, they examined her and found she was suffering from terminal cancer. They delivered her baby daughter and put her through chemotherapy. But it was too late. This is so sad because if it had been found earlier, she could have been saved. So very sad.
