Can anyone read the first word for the cause of death on this death certificate?

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HT-DTC9-X64?i=392&personaUrl=%2Fark%3A%2F61903%2F1%3A1%3AF3CL-QTM

Also, the "What test confirmed diagnosis?" line?

Thanks!

My best guess is puerperal eclampsia (usually childbirth related).

(Using comment in case there is someone with a better answer.)

I think Melanie is right.
I totally agree with Melanie, Pip.

In the line "what test confirmed diagnosis", there is no info. The line just below is the M.D.'s signature.
Correct, Rubén. I couldn't read the sig and and missed that it was the line where the doc signed.
Thanks, Melanie. Looks like Bertha got pregnant almost immediately after getting married and died the day after childbirth. Fortunately, the child lived. She died the day after his birth. This is so very sad.

Appreciate your help!
