Died in Childbirth

I went to a funeral on Saturday of a mum who died in childbirth, They also lost their baby. She has left behind a husband and 2 boys 2 & 4 years old. It has hit me quite hard, but I feel a bit of a fraud as I had only met her twice but she was a really nice lady. I was expecting that there would be two coffins but the baby was in his mums arms - I think that was the bit where I felt worst, just thinking what a huge space this mum and babys passing has left in so many peoples lives. So anyway please, those who do pray, include them in your prayers and give your kids an extra hug and kiss in memory of Lyn & Joseph.

I really can't think of anything to say to this. How absolutely awful, poor family left behind.

Kind of comforting that they were in one coffin.

by no means making a mockery of this, but it reminded me of Titanic, when the mum lays cuddling in the bed with her two children as the boat sinks

feel so sad..supposed to be the start of a new life..but the end of two

what happend??

one of the saddest postings I have ever read... but some comfort to be gained from them resting together... her poor boys...all three of them..

This should not be happening in this day and age.

Will pray for them both.

How tragic .

What happened margo ? Hope you don't mind me asking.

margo1974 Sun 24-Apr-05 22:42:22

She haemorrhaged and the drugs they gave her to stop the bleeding didn't work, as for the little boy, I really don't know. You would think that, in this day and age, they would be able to invent some fail-proof method to ensure that tis does not happen. It seems needless.

Hope they find some way of coping. It will be extremely tough. How does one expect that a mum goes into labour and ends up losing her life and her babies.

How absolutely shocking and tragic for that family and those 2 boys looking forward to having a new baby brother and now they have to come to terms with losing him and their mum.

What a lovely decision to let mum and baby sleep together - baby will always be safe

They are not only sleeping together but no doubt playing together now - she will be protecting him forever.

Personally I can' think of a better way to say my goodbyes, her husband must be amazing, as are you. She will be happy you are there xxxx
