A mother of two has died in childbirth while acting as a surrogate for another family.
Michelle Reaves passed away due to complications while giving birth, though the baby survived.
A GoFundMe page organized by a family friend described the kind of person Reaves was and the family she left behind:
“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.”
Donations from the GoFundMe campaign will cover the funeral costs and to help Reaves' husband and two young children.
