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.
Hannah's mother Michelle Browne is calling for all pregnant women to have a scan for Peripartum cardiomyopathy - the rare heart condition which killed her daughter.
She said: "if I can save one person out of all of this, it would mean so much, because then they wouldn't have to go through the heartache that we have had to go through as a family."
She said all is needed is "a simple scan - that would cost about £40-£60 - that would pick it up."
The family of a young mother who died from a rare heart condition is campaigning for all pregnant women to be checked for the problem.
Hannah-Michelle Browne, from Pontypool, died from Peripartum cardiomyopathy - a type of heart failure - just five weeks after her son was born.
