Kurama’s sealing in Naruto:

Kushina was already dying because of the removal of tailed beast so she gave an idea of re seal Kurama within her so both of them would die. Minato rejected this and said it would disturb the balance of power in shinobi nations and Kurama’s power would be needed in the future to fight Tobi.
He then plans to seal Kurama within Naruto, Kushina was against it but Minato convinces her saying that he trusts Naruto and thinks that he is the child of prophecy and would need Kurama’s power in future.

Minato and Kushina’s death:

Minato then starts preparation of sealing Kurama in Naruto, Naruto was a new born baby that’s why he couldn’t handle full power of Kurama, Minato uses Death reaper seal to cut half of Kurama’s soul and seals it within him. Kurama realised their plan and tried to kill Naruto but Minato and Kushina shielded him and take the blow, then Minato summons Gerotora giving him the key of the seal on Naruto in case of need in future and sent him to Jiraya, he then combined some of Kushina’s chakra so in future she could help Naruto to control Kuruma and in the end he combined some of his chakra and programmed it to activate when the seal is broken so he can help to reseal it.
In the end Minato gave Kushina few minutes to have a final talk with Naruto, and after that he seals Kurama inside Naruto, after sustaining this much damage and removal of tailed beast Kushina dies and Minato’s soul get devoured by death reaper as the techniques contract. In his final movements Minato tells third Hokage to take care of Naruto and villagers to think of him as hero who saved village and not the monster that destroyed village.
