Tributes to mum who died just days after giving birth

A WOMAN who died days after giving birth to her firstborn has been described as “a wonderful young woman with a bright future”.
Carly Scott died in Furness General Hospital on Wednesday afternoon.
The 26-year-old gave birth to a baby boy named George last week. She had been discharged from hospital, but later had to be readmitted.
Mrs Scott, née Bailey, married husband Nick last summer.
In a statement, her family said: “We are shocked and devastated by her very sudden death. Thanks to family friends and well-wishers for their continued support and special thanks to all the medical staff involved with Carly’s care.
“We would now like to be left alone to grieve in private.”
Mrs Scott worked in the planning department at BAE Systems in Barrow.
Work colleague Dave Taylor described her as “a wonderful young woman with a bright future”.
He said: “She was a very kind, considerate, loving and respected person. She would have been a great mother. She kept us all updated on her progress while pregnant and was really enjoying life.”
Another colleague, Shirley Coyle, said: “She was a lovely, lovely girl, a really beautiful girl inside and out. She could make you laugh no matter how low you were.
“It’s a wonder that there weren’t any accidents in BAE, as she didn’t half turn heads, even in her boiler suit and steel toe capped boots.
“I was arranging my wedding and she rang me with all sorts of websites and people who she had used for hers.
“She couldn’t have been any more helpful. She will be so sadly missed.”
Lisa York, a friend of Mrs Scott’s mum Angela, said: “Carly was one of life’s rays of sunshine and always had a smile on her face, she would light up a room with her smile.
“She will be missed by a lot of people. My heart goes out to her mum Angela, her husband and her newborn son. Heaven has got another angel, but taken too soon.”
George Nasmyth, interim medical director of the University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust, which runs FGH, said: “To lose a family member at such a young age is nothing short of tragic and our heartfelt sympathy goes out to Mrs Scott’s family.
“It is our routine procedure to investigate all cases like this to identify and, if necessary, act upon any areas where our care could improve.
“We will continue to liaise directly with the family and offer them support wherever we can.”
The coroner for South and East Cumbria has been informed.
A spokeswoman for the office said a date had yet to be set for an inquest to be opened and adjourned.

Have your say
Carly and her family came to live next door to us at North Scale when she was about 7 years old. She was a fantastic child, full of fun and visited often. Our hearts go out to her mum, dad and Luke, and cant believe that 'little carly has gone' Life isn't fair.
