Ashington Mum's Pain Of Losing Twin Daughter
An Ashington mum is hoping to raise awareness of a life threatening condition, following the death of one of her twin baby daughters.
Lindsey Weightman was delighted to find she was pregnant with two babies, but at 20 weeks was devastated to learn she had Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome.
It's where one of the baby's growth is stunted due to the placenta not being shared equally between her unborn children.
Lindsey and her husband had to make the choice of undergoing surgery, in a last attempt to try and save both of their little girls.
They would have lost both babies without the operation, however one of their daughters, Summer, sadly didn't make it.
Lindsey tells Heart what that 'bitter-sweet' moment was like:
The family are now using their heart-ache to raise awareness of the condition, with the hope of getting pregnant women who are carrying identical twins, to spot the signs earlier.
Today is Twin to Twin Transfusion Awareness Day and it sees famous landmarks across the world light up in blue, with the aim of making more people aware of the condition.
The Millennium Bridge and the Tyne Bridge on Newcastle and Gateshead's Quayside are just two landmarks in the north-east to be taking part.
