PHOENIX – A woman died hours after giving birth to quadruplets at a Phoenix hospital, a close friend of the family said Saturday.

Erica Morales, 36, never got to hold her newborns before she passed away early Friday morning after a C-section surgery at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center, Nicole Todman said.

“They were transporting her from the surgery to whatever room, and she was still unconscious at that point. So, no, she never got to see them,” Todman said.

Morales was about seven months into her pregnancy when she delivered three girls and one boy Thursday, according to Todman. She has been one of the few able to visit the premature newborns and said they are doing well.

“They’re beautiful,” Todman said. “They have tubes in their mouths and their noses. They’ve got little monitors and wires all over their body.”
