No doubt, considering it can cause damage to vital organs if not kept in check. If she wasn't 100% vigilant to begin with, having things go out of whack due to irregular treatment and eating schedules (plus stress), could potentially lead to heart issues. The moving about so soon after her latest episode and the stress of the situation could easily trigger a heart attack.
The major issue I had with the whole thing was that she didn't seem to show (or properly react to) the normal signs. Not only should she have had a reaction to the feeling like Barbie was sitting on her chest, she should have immediately recognized the symptoms herself.
Instead, she acted more like she was bottoming out and headed toward a diabetic coma.
Of course, the other issue was the whole cliche of the situation where the unqualified person has to help with the birth, the cord gets wrapped around the baby's neck and the kid starts crying without any attempt to clear her airway.
The next cliche will likely be that the boy and girl won't bother to tell anyone about the dome's little friend in the center.
