(Scroll down for video) A mother never laid eyes on the babies she so desperately wanted to have.

Erica Morales, 36, and her husband Carlos, of Arizona, have tried for the last few years to have a baby.

With the help of IVF, they were blessed with 4 beautiful children, but with that blessing came the most unimaginable tragedy, as the mother died after birth.

On Thursday, Morales delivered three girls and one boy via C-section at the Banner Good Samaritan Hospital in Phoenix.

Morales went into the hospital due to high blood pressure. Just hours later, she passed away and never had a chance to meet her children, Carlos Jr., Paisley, Tracy, and Erica.

Doctors have launched an investigation into the death of Morales, who reportedly worked as a real estate agent and was about 7 months into her pregnancy.

The babies are said to be in good health. Their weight is between 2 and 3 pounds each. The children will be cared for by the hospital staff until they will reach about 5 pounds each, which is expected to take two to three months.
