Wow, fantastic! and in this case it's not a pronoun...so we must write as you suggest. Thank you!

As far as I know, although I can be wrong, the subject is usually put between 'but' and 'also' when it is a pronoun.

E.g. Not only was she late, but she also forgot to bring her assignment.

Hi Jesus!

Here's the correct variant of the sentence:

Not only is the mother's (Possessive case) health in danger, but also the baby may be premature.

I was only wondering where the third sentence was...

Hi Natalia,

In fact, ther was only 2 sentences. My dubt was where to put the subject, after but also, or in the middle...
