Jess Mayall and Steve Branson will never forget how they walked with their baby Ava in the park. The couple were heartbroken when their daughter was stillborn 11 days before her expected due date. They spent two more weeks together with her: taking photos, changing clothes, hugging and putting her to bed. The inconsolable mother went to her daughter's grave three times a day for the first few months after the funeral. Fortunately, a year later, the couple had a second daughter, fulfilling their dream of becoming parents.36-year-old Jess and 38-year-old Steve from Grimsby have lived together for 18 years. They wanted to have a child, but his wife was diagnosed with endometriosis. The couple tried to conceive a baby by artificial insemination. The first attempt did not bring the desired results, but the second, using a donor egg, was successful.
Ava was born fully full-term. There was a feeling that she was about to wake up and everything would be fine.
When the couple found out that they were expecting their second child, they were over the moon with happiness, but the thought that pregnancy could end just as sadly did not give them peace of mind.
Fortunately, baby Imogen was born alive and well.
Jess and Steve gave their daughter the room that was meant for Eva. Everything was already arranged in it, and the youngest daughter inherited things that were intended for the eldest.
A mother believes that there is a special bond between her daughters.
