In the past they used to bury women, who died during
childbirth, in a separate area in the Bais Hachayim.
The Shu”t Malkieil (2:132) writes the reason for it
is , "we find in the Gemoro (Shabbos 118b) R.Yosi said
on himself ,he wishes to die on the way to do a
Mitzvah. Women while giving birth is like on the way
to a Mitzvah. They are on a higher Madreiga than
the rest and need to be buried separately."
Could be, this to be an additional reason, Rochel was
buried separately, because she was at a different
Madreiga than the other Imahos אמבצי) )
The reason a mother who gave birth is called a חיה
Because it was very common to die during childbirth
and she survived ,she is called the live one.
In Loshon Chazal , a midwife is called a חכמה
The reason for it *
איזהו חכם הרואה את הנולד
