Man Forced To Say Final Goodbye After Wife Dies During Childbirth - The Unthinkable Happens

One couple was expecting a baby, and expecting a normal pregnancy. Everything seemed normal, at least, until the wife went into labor. The new dad thought his wife was gone for good, but what happened next was nothing short of a miracle.

Melanie Pritchard seemed like she was having an ordinary pregnancy, but while in labor she went into convulsions. Doctors called a code blue and began working on the young mother, but they couldn't do anything. They told her husband she died of a rare amniotic fluid embolism.

Doctors were able to resuscitate Melanie and put her on life support, but they only thought it would give the family a chance to say goodbye. “My wife was clinically dead when they delivered my daughter.” husband Doug says. “My first thought was, ‘I’m a widower.’ And we’d only been married three years… They had asked us to say our goodbyes. I remember asking her vividly, ‘If you have any fight left in you, then fight!’”
