Kerry Martin, 34, died on Monday after the rupture of her adenoma, a rare benign tumor that occurs mostly in women of childbearing age.
Kerry is the wife of Arizona State Treasurer, Dean Martin.
During a news conference Thursday, Martin said he would release more information about the causes in the deaths of his wife and their child, but wanted to focus on planning memorial services. Funeral services are pending, as is the establishment of a memorial fund to promote causes important to Kerry.
The treasurer emphasized that the circumstances leading to his wife's death were extraordinary, saying that most expectant mothers should not be overly concerned about their own pregnancies.
"I know many expectant mothers are probably very worried right now. I know Kerry would have been," Martin said Thursday. "But I want you to know that the events that led to Kerry's death were rare, and Kerry would not want you to worry."
