Mother died from heart failure while 32-weeks pregnant with twin boys – but doctors SAVED both babies

A mother died of heart failure while heavily pregnant with twin boys – one of which was delivered not breathing, but doctors managed to keep both alive.

Kelly Forrest, 36, from Hull, was 32 weeks pregnant when she started feeling breathless, sweating, and dizzy and was vomiting.

She was rushed to Hull Royal Infirmary (HRI) by ambulance where staff battled to save her and her unborn children.

Kelly lost her fight as both boys were delivered by caesarean section.

Today, her heartbroken mother Anne Campbell has paid tribute to Kelly, who leaves behind three other children and who would have ‘loved every minute’ of her new twins.

She has also hit out at an error that meant hospital staff were not aware of her family history of heart disease.
