A 38-year-old woman, who experienced health complications, died at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) on Thursday, two days after she delivered her baby.
The maternal death was confirmed in a release issued by the hospital on Thursday.
“The GPHC expresses sincerest condolences to the family of the deceased and will make every effort to provide all the necessary support during this difficult time to render any assistance and information needed.
“The GPHC is appealing to the public to respect the confidentiality of the deceased and her family, and to allow them to mourn their unfortunate loss peacefully,” the release stated.
