Yeah, 5 months pregnant and we were a lot more remote than that writer - bobbing around in kayaks among ice bergs.

I meant to earlier remove the word "geez" from my post cuz I didn't like how it looked. I was initially frustrated that the child died. In that country, the fetus would have no chance of living with premature delivery that early. Even in the USA it would have a low chance of making it since about the youngest to ever survive is about 20 weeks or so.

Pregnancy classes should teach what to do if no 911 and premature labor/delivery. Yanking out the cord would not be on the list of "do's".
