Mom Is Lucky to Be Alive After Major Complication Was Masked by Pregnancy Symptoms

Brittany Forrest has “never been sick in my life”, except for bouts of the flu.

The 26-year-old, fun-loving animal lover from British Columbia, Canada, was already a mom of two boys, and a step mom, and pregnant with another child.

The self-proclaimed Disney expert, Forrest was expectantly waiting to meet the newest unnamed addition, Baby ‘Champ’ Forrest to the family.

The Courtenay woman was seven months’ pregnant with Jaxon when she started feeling groggy and short of breath, with a constant, sharp pain in her shoulder.

Doctors figured Forrest was experiencing pregnancy-related discomfort. The symptoms continued, however.
