Two grieving parents have shared heartbreaking family photos taken with their newborn baby, who died just one hour after being born.

Mother Hayley Rice, from Derby, said the photos, taken two days after daughter Sydney’s death, ‘really helped get us through the grieving process’.

She and partner Kevin Martin are seen holding their tiny baby, as well as Hayley’s daughters Charlie, 15, and Frankie, 11, who also hold their little sister in their arms.

The images will spark debate between those who may think the photos are inappropriate and others understanding of the anguish of losing a child.

Miss Rice added: ‘Some people think it’s a bit morbid, but if you’ve been through something like this then it’s a service you really appreciate.’ 

Hayley, 34, from Derby, said: ‘We hadn’t planned to have a baby, but when I found out I was pregnant in August last year it was a lovely surprise.

‘It was definitely a shock and took some getting used to, but it was a nice surprise and we were really happy and excited.

‘I have two daughters from a previous relationship and Kevin has one, Megan, who’s 11, but this was our first baby together – we couldn’t wait for her to arrive.
