The mum of tiny triplets has died suddenly at home after spending her first Christmas with her children. Rachel Park 39, and her husband had hailed their children as Christmas miracles after they were allowed home for the first time in ten months after they were born prematurely.
But it has emerged today that Rachel died suddenly at home in Bransty, Whitehaven, on Tuesday, days after talking about how excited she was for Christmas. Police have described Rachel’s death as “unexplained but not suspicious”.
The combined birthweight of the triplets was just 5lb 2oz. Born 14 weeks early in March, triplets Poppie, Mollie and Evelyn fought for their lives in hospital for the first two months, before stabilising and finally being allowed home before Christmas.
