Correct option is
A

Because of

Prepositional phrases are a group of words containing preposition which lacks either a verb or a subject. Such phrases always have two basic parts: object and preposition. Prepositions are mostly followed by objects. 
Using option A will justify all the above rules. 'Because of' is the preposition and 'poor health' is the object. 'Because of her poor health' is a prepositional phrase.
Options B, C, and D are not creating prepositional phrases with object 'poor health'. 
Thus, option A is the correct answer.
