Caring alone for two small girls, Texas father grapples with loss
Zak Tiemann, a 34-year-old father in Texas, steps into an unfamiliar role after his girls' mother, Amanda Garcia, died three years ago just days after giving birth at the age of 26. Garcia - whose family say she died after she suffered a blood clot - was one of an estimated 700 women who die of pregnancy-related complications each year in the United States, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That is the highest rate in the developed world, and U.S. maternal deaths have been rising over the last two decades, according to investigations by ProPublica and NPR.
