|home birth with the midwife 1800's|
Why also did she die in Darmstadt? I would doubt that a healthy mother would leave a child so young or herself care to travel for whatever reason so soon after delivery. I know that Darmstadt had the closest hospital therefore I find it most logical that Margarethe, ill or injured, traveled to Darmstadt hospital for advanced medical care. Knowing medically what we do now I still think it possible that the birth of her child somehow contributed to her death. Pulmonary embolism? Infection? Hemorrhage?
Why? We will never know. The record of her death doesn't say.
