Camilla Edwards developed postpartum cardiomyopathy a number of months after having her first baby.
The situation is a uncommon type of coronary heart failure that occurs over the last month of being pregnant or as much as 5 months after giving delivery. The illness causes the center to enlarge and to weaken, resulting in not sufficient oxygen flowing to key organs.
“As soon as I used to be identified, I may not work,” stated Edwards, 47, a former faculty bus driver and mom of two who lives in Palmetto Bay. She gave delivery in 2005.
