A young mum gave birth to a baby boy, passed away minutes after delivering at Singleton Hospital in Wales on August 15.
The mother underwent a cesarean section and moments later her heart stopped beating.
Ravina Bhagwan, 29-years-old delivered her son Samarth safely now being looked after by Ravina’s husband Sagar Bhagwan has also left behind a seven-year-old daughter Sanvi.
The family are looking for answers and an initial post-mortem examination, along with an independent panel inquiry, have yet to determine the cause of her death.
Ashish Channawar, a family friend, said in a statement: “Ravina’s husband and her mother were with her during the last minutes and are devastated due to her unexpected and untimely death.
“The family is yet to recover from this unexpected and heavy loss.
“Fate has been cruel to take away the mother of two young children at the very early age of just 29.
“Ravina was very social and welcoming in the community.”
Ravina was born in India and worked there as a primary school teacher after finishing her university degree in education.
After marrying Sagar they moved to the UK and welcomed daughter Sanvi into the world in 2012.
More than 200 people attended Ravina’s funeral which was held at Swansea Crematorium on Wednesday, August 28.
Ashish added: “Many people travelled all the way from Newcastle, Swindon, and London which shows the strong ties of the family with the community across the country.
“The hearts of every person at the cremation sank when Ravina’s mother and Sagar broke down while paying the final goodbye to her.”
A GoFundMe page has been set up by Ashish to raise money to support her two young children.
Ashish added: “It is a very painful time and we are yet to recover from the shock and unable to accept the reality. Sagar has faced the greatest loss of his life and needs support.”
