A grieving mother has called for pregnant women in Wales to be scanned for a rare condition which caused the death of her daughter, just weeks after she had given birth to a baby son.

Hannah-Michelle Browne from Pontypool was 21 when she died of Peripartum cardiomyopathy, which is a type of heart failure.

Her family have paid tribute to medics who kept her alive long enough to spend some precious moments with her child before she died.
