God is a providential God, and everything that happens is under his control. When a person is ill, to the point of death, it is God's will. God has a plan, and when someone dies, it is part of his plan.
If a woman is going to die in childbirth, it is part of God's providential plan.
If a child is going to die in childbirth, it is part of God's providential plan.
If a doctor kills a child, it is murder, and though God may use it for good, I doubt that is was part of his plan. In the end, though,
...we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.
