Mrs Feasey, from Heysham in Lancashire, lost her son Toby at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary in January 2017 after staff failed to act on her pre-eclampsia, a condition that occurs during pregnancy and can be dangerous.

She is now calling on midwives to learn from what happened to her family, telling The Independent: 'This was an easily avoidable situation. They just didn't piece it together, all they had to do was carry out a test and I lost my son because of it.'

She had woken up with pain in her back on New Year's Eve in 2016 and had called the community midwife, who told her that Toby was 'just a big baby' and to take paracetamol every four hours to see if the pain subsided.

On January 5, she attended an appointment with her midwife who found her abdomen was smaller than two weeks previously.

They could not find Toby's heartbeat.

Revealed: Number Of Covid Patients On Ventilators Nearing Pandemic-High At 4 NHS Trusts

  Revealed: Number Of Covid Patients On Ventilators Nearing Pandemic-High At 4 NHS Trusts The number of coronavirus patients on ventilators is already nearing the figure recorded at the peak of the pandemic at a handful of NHS trusts in England, new data have revealed. Figures published by NHS England on Thursday show there are four trusts where the number of mechanical ventilation beds occupied by Covid-19 patients is approaching the highest figure recorded between April and the start of October. It does not mean these trusts are close to being overwhelmed – but it’s an indicator of how the second wave of the virus is developing in England.

'Each of these were either diminished or absent in Jenny's case and the theme has sadly been consistent across hundreds of other cases we have dealt with.'

Sue Smith, chief nurse and deputy chief executive at University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay, told The Independent: 'Toby's case is a very tragic one and our condolences go out to Jennifer. While we have written to her and admitted liability in this terribly sad case – it is still awaiting a final settlement.'
