Leah Biggs, 27, was told that having a baby could kill her because of her fragile heart



A proud mother who defied doctors warnings over having a baby has died just three weeks after giving birth.
Leah Biggs, 27, was told that having a baby could kill her because of her fragile heart - but gave birth to her tiny 4lbs 4oz daughter Aria last month. 

However Leah, who underwent a heart transplant in 2010, suffered complications and had to be kept alive by a life support machine.
But after three weeks doctors eventually told her husband Mike, 28, there was nothing more that could be done.

Baby Aria, who was being cared for in an intensive care incubator, was allowed to return home the day her mother died.
Her sister-in-law Lucianna said: "It's such a difficult time for our family but Aria is pulling us all through."
Beauty therapist Leah, of Abercarn, Gwent, was born with a rare heart condition and received a heart transplant in 2010.
Doctors told her that her condition could kill if her she gave birth, but earlier this year she was was said to be thrilled at the prospect of becoming a mum.
In a Facebook post she wrote:
"I have achieved so much since my transplant and would hope I'm doing my donor proud. "By the end of this year I'll be a mummy and that was something I never thought would happen. "I have done more travelling in the last five years than my whole life and had my best friend/husband/soul mate and my rock by my side through thick and thin."
"Couldn't of come this far without either of them," she added. "So please remember heaven doesn't need your organs we do down here."
Leah's family are now trying to help raise both money to help with Aria's upbringing, and raise awareness about organ donation.
