Another women has died after giving birth to twins by Caesarean section, the second in two weeks.

Irina Yohonovich, 36, gave birth last Tuesday at Western Galilee Hospital in Nahariya, after undergoing a Caesarean because of severe toxemia. She died Thursday at Rambam Medical Center in Haifa.

An X-ray revealed a blood clot in her brain and she was transfered to Rambam unconscious and on a respirator.

Professor Ya'akov Bornstein, head of the Women's Health department at Western Galilee Hospital, said toxemia strikes about seven percent of pregnant women.
