If the birth had killed her, that would have been fine, but it was clearly stated that she was in perfect physical health.

Not that that is going to stop you from dreaming… Only in this case, Gaffer is actually a guy.

Exactly, they had a ready-made reason for potential mortality. A tiny script change could have easily - and plausibly - made her susceptible to death during childbirth.

This whole "lost the will to live" stuff is made even stupider when a potentially natural cause of death was at hand.

Good point! Forgot about that line. However I still think those kids had something to do with it....they knew what they were up to.

They knew that in order to "resurrect" their father they had to first kill their mother. A life for a life.

Broken Heart Syndrome

It's real, but it's also (at least recently) easy enough to keep people from dying of it. The symptoms also mimic that of a massive heart attack, so what happened with Padme isn't exactly the same thing.

She could've easily died during child birth or from her injuries from Anakin, but no, GL had to make her "lose the will to live". So, a woman that's been a strong Queen, fought in wars, and represented her people as a Senator, doesn't have the will to live to 1) attempt to bring her husband back to the light side and 2) take care of the children she just bore. I don't think so.
