Michelle Reaves, a San Diego mother of two who was working as a surrogate for another family, died tragically during childbirth last week, according to a GoFundMe set up to help her family.
The fund-raiser, created by a close family friend named Jaime Herwehe, says that Reaves started helping another family have children after she had her own, and was on her second surrogacy for the same family. She delivered the baby in the morning but, according to the fund-raiser, “one complication led to the next and she fought for her life.” The child survived, but Reaves didn’t.
When reached by CNN, the family didn’t wish to comment, but in the info for the fund-raiser, Herwehe had plenty of kind things to say about Reaves.
“For those of you who didn’t have the pleasure of knowing Michelle, she will always be known for the love she had for her family. Michelle has the best, most sarcastic, funny personality and always had you laughing. Michelle and Chris have two beautiful kids, Gage and Monroe who my heart breaks for, knowing they won’t grow old with their mama.”
The fund-raiser continued, “No one deserves to lose their mama so young or the mother of their children.”
