While Dead Celebrities Make Headlines, Christmas for This Family Won’t Ever Be the Same

Rachel Park and her husband were so excited to finally be home for Christmas and spending it with their brand new set of TRIPLETS. Poppie, Evelyn and Mollie were born extremely early at 26 weeks and it was doubtful any of them would make it. With a combined birth weight of only 5lbs 2oz and after a 10 month hospital stay, everything was going great until tragedy struck right after Christmas.

Speaking before Christmas, Rachel recalled her first sight of them.

“They wheeled me down. I met Evelyn first. I put my hand in to hold hers. It was so hard not to be able to give them cuddles, to have the glass between you. I read them nursery stories.”

Just tragic. Where are the big headlines for this mom, our military and all the others that truly made the world a better place?.

Mirror Reports:

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, says after talking about how excited she was for Christmas.

A Facebook appeal has now been set up to help her husband Steven look after his young family.

Police have described Rachel’s death as “unexplained but not suspicious”, the BBC reported.

The combined birthweight of the triplets was just 5lb 2oz – three tiny sisters weighing together as much as one small newborn alone.

Born 14 weeks early, triplets Poppie, Mollie and Evelyn fought for their lives in hospital for the first two months.

Their terrified parents told the Daily Mirror before Christmas how they never heard the doctors say: ‘When your girls come home’.

Day after day, it was always ‘if’.

Rachel, 39, said one week before Christmas: “I remember the consultant telling us: ‘All we have is time. It is up to them, and how much of a fighter they are’.”

She also told the News and Star last week how the family was “ looking forward to Christmas, there’s toys everywhere!”

Following the news of Rachel’s death, tributes have now been paid to the mum.

Lucy Dawson told BBC Cumbria: “Rachel had the girls back in March this year and I fell pregnant with triplets just after.

“I got in touch with Rachel online and she supported me through every step because she knew what I was going through. I wouldn’t be where I am without her support.

“She was a good friend to me and a good support to other ladies who had triplets in the area and across the UK as well.”

For Steven and Rachel, their triplets were much longed for first babies, conceived on the fourth cycle of IVF .

They imagined this first Christmas over and over as the fun family occasion they had always dreamt of.
