OTTAWA (AFP) - A Canadian whose brain-dead pregnant wife is being kept on life support until the birth of their baby is giving the public a glimpse of his very personal tragedy.

In an online blog, Mr Dylan Benson has been recording his feelings as he grieves for his wife Robyn, whom he called "his rock", while preparing to be a single father to a son.

The mother-to-be suffered a brain hemorrhage at the end of December, when she was 22 weeks along.

Doctors hope to keep her alive until she reaches 34 weeks at the end of March, at which point they plan to perform a Cesarean section.
