Share

People from around the globe are mourning the unexpected death of a fertility blogger who died during an emergency C-section in September.

One glimpse at her social media account, and you’ll understand how excited Vanessa Fernandez Arango was to become a mom.

After an ectopic pregnancy in 2016 and another one in 2017, it seemed 2018 would finally be her year.

Arango started an Instagram account, documenting her pregnancy journey.

She had over 10,000 followers, among them, women who also struggled with infertility. Many hopeful moms saw Arango’s first viable pregnancy as hope for their own lives.

Buenas a todas!!!!!! Pues de amarillo me he puesto hoy pa comerme un pedazo de gofre!!!! ????, no debería… Lo sé… Pero la verdad es que lo que quería era un helado de turrón, y cuando he llegado a la heladería olía a Nutella muchiiiiiisimo…. Así que he optado por el gofre. Me he sentido un poco mal, pero viendo que el otro dia cuando fui al endocrino estaba todo ok y controlado, pues he pensado que por 1 dia no iba a pasar nada. Hoy no tenía que controlar el azúcar, pero por curiosidad me he pinchado para ver si subía mucho, y mi sorpresa ha sido que no ha subido nada!!!! Así que me he quedao más tranquila. Pero bueno, ya mañana otra vez a hacer las cosas bien. A pulpito y a mí nos ha entrao de miedo el gofre, me parece que se ha puesto muy contento porque ha estado de fiesta ??????? supongo que era el chocolate y el probar algo rico después de casi 3 semanas a base de fruta y cosas muy sanas. Además me subió el azúcar el otro dia con un zumo de naranja y hoy con el gofre no! Empiezo a pensar que se han equivocado con mi diagnóstico ???? Mañana volveremos a la rutina verde (ensaladas, judias) y cosas a la plancha. Hoy dormiré bien agustito!!!! Buenas noches guapas!!!! #invitro #fiv #diabetesgestacional #31semanas #bebé #bebéencamino #nutella #mamá #amatxu #reproducciónasistida #embarazo #embarazoectópico #mamasintrompas #babyboy #golosa

On Sept. 2, Arango’s husband Jonathan Garcia gave a devastating update on his wife and their newborn son.

Arango was 38 weeks pregnant when she began to experience pain so intense that she passed out at home. She was rushed to a hospital and underwent an emergency C-section, WPIX-TV reported.

Aqui teneis nuestra primera foto familiar, falta el cuarto miembro de la fsmilia que nos vela desde el el cielo y nos ayuda a levantarnos a los 3. Está siendo muy duro esto, pañales, leche en polvo, nanas, lloros….y esque cuando llora el niño, la pobre Nala se me pone a llorar, y yo la sigo con la duda de que hacer y el dolor de la perdida. Quiero dar mi eterno agradecimiento a todas ese maravilloso personal del Hospital de Cruces por salvarle la vida a mi hijo, sus tratos, cuidados, consejos….han sido tan exquisitos que no hay palabras de agradecimiento. También quiero dar las gracias a la clinica @igin_reproduccion por crear este pequeño milagro que tengo entre mis brazos, aunque su madre no esté aquí, se que ella estaría igual de agradecida. Seguiremos luchando para salir adelante como podamos, con vuestro apoyo, los amigos y la familia, nada nos podrá frenar. #vaneonfire #alvaroelguerrero #superpapa #hospitaldecruces

Tragically, Arango had a heart attack during the surgery, and did not survive. Her newborn son did survive, and was soon discharged to go home with his father.

Garcia initially thought he would close his wife’s Instagram account, but later decided it may be beneficial to keep it open as a way to serve others, just as his wife had done.

“Here you have our first family photo, missing the fourth member of the group that watches us from the sky and helps us get up at 3,” Garcia wrote on a photo of him, his newborn son, and their family dog posed together at home.

Garcia has expressed his heartfelt thanks for the droves of supporters that have left condolences. He and baby Alvaro are managing one hard day at a time.
