Mother's heartbreaking days spent with daughter’s body after she died days after sister's birth

A remarkable mother has relived the most bittersweet 10 days of her life, when she gave birth to one daughter, watched another die and created a poignant picture album with her two beloved children - during five days spent with her six-year-old girl's body, as the family said their goodbyes. Heartbroken Emily Nixon, 25, recalled how her desperately sick little girl, Darcy Roger, six, packed a lifetime of love into just five days, when Beatrice, the baby sister she had longed for, was born two weeks premature - giving them less than a week to bond before the older girl died.
