Mother's Day: Woman who had heart attack during childbirth thanks St. Paul's cardiac team
Jaxon Gallagher is only one month old, but one day he’ll be old enough to tell his mom “Happy Mother’s Day,” and learn the story of how her heart gave out the day he was born.
Brittany Forrest, 26, said she “has never been sick in my life,” except for bouts of the flu.
At the hospital, Forrest collapsed. She was airlifted to St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver and admitted into the cardiac intensive-care unit.
