Tammy's Story 

Mother told baby would be stillborn but gets the best surprise when she goes into labour

A mum who was told to plan for her unborn child’s funeral when her waters broke at 20 weeks is now hugging her healthy baby boy.

Tammy Smith, 26, was told she would likely have a stillbirth as the chances of a baby surviving at such an early stage of development are close to zero.

She had even picked out a small blue coffin in anticipation.

Cally's Story 

Pregnant mum snapped last ever picture with dying baby – look at them now

Setting my mobile phone camera on timer, I wiped my red rimmed eyes and forced a smile as I turned to show my baby bump to the camera.

‘You don’t have to do this,’ my partner Jason sniffed.
But as much as it hurt, I wanted to. I needed something that I could treasure when we mourned our loss over the coming months.

For while getting pregnant has always been easy for me, being able to carry a successful pregnancy was a different story. After my fifth miscarriage in late 2015, Jason and I decided to give it one more go to have our longed-for third child, and just a few weeks later, I discovered I was pregnant again.
It was early days, but I had such a good feeling about this little life growing inside me.

‘It just feels right this time,’ I told Jason.
