Friends and family of little Maisie-Leigh Lamb have set up a fundraising page to raise money for the hospital which cared for her
A HEARTBROKEN mum has revealed the agony of finding her ‘smiley and happy’ baby dead in her pram.
Shannon Tideswell, 20, took eight-month-old Maisie-Leigh Lamb out for a stroll during the hottest day of the year last Sunday in Nottingham.
But her young mother’s world was turned upside down when she noticed that her daughter’s lips had turned blue and she wasn’t breathing.
Little Maisie-Leigh suffered from spina bifida and hydrocephalus and had spent the first month of her life in a special care unit.
After discovering her child unresponsive in her pram, distraught Shannon rushed her child to hospital where she was sadly pronounced dead.
The grieving mum told the Nottingham Post that despite her ill health, Masie-Leigh’s positive personality shone through.
