A mum who lost her twin babies within a week of being born has said she wants to celebrate their short lives rather than focus on the loss.
Hannah Beverley, 30, has spoken about the ordeal just days after losing her "beautiful babies".
Max Arthur and Nel Martha were 16 weeks premature when they lost their short battles for life.
Hannah and her husband Thomas, 30, who live in Colwyn Bay, discovered Hannah was expecting in June of this year, and said: "We were over the moon."
After some early issues, Hannah's pregnancy progressed smoothly and the couple were delighted to learn they were expecting twins.
But after 22 weeks things started to go wrong and Hannah was taken to hospital.
Doctors at Glan Clwyd Hospital were able to perform a "cervical cerclage", a procedure which aims to prevent labour.
Hannah stayed at Glan Clwyd until she was 23 weeks pregnant before being transferred to Arrowe Park Hospital on the Wirral.
After 24 weeks and four days of pregnancy, Hannah went into labour and daughter Nel Martha was born weighing 1lb 5oz and son Max Arthur was born seven minutes later weighing 1lb 6oz.
The couple were woken up in the night to be given the news that Max was seriously ill.
They were called to the intensive care unit where they found doctors performing CPR on Max as they tried to save his life.
Doctors managed to restart his heart, giving grandparents Gordon, Julie, James and Sandy the chance to meet their grandchild.
But Max could not be saved and he died on October 24.
After losing their son, the couple watched on as their daughter Nel battled with "strength and resilience" to stay alive.
But she also started to deteriorate after showing signs of infection.
Nel Martha died on October 31.
Despite their devastation, Hannah said she and Thomas want to focus on the positives.
Hannah added that they were "so grateful" for the help from staff at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd and Arrowe Park Hospital, as well as Ronald McDonald House.
She added that the couple wanted to thank family and friends for their "love and support".
Max and Nel's funerals will take place this Wednesday.
