Another said the mum was "beautiful inside and out".

"Laura was such a lovely person and it was an honour to work with such a kind-hearted lady, we will miss you dearly Laura." another added.

Home birth services were momentarily paused across the Mid-West region.

An investigation into Laura's heartbreaking death is now underway.

External experts have ruled her death as a tragedy.

A spokesperson for the UL Hospital Group said this week:

“We can confirm that we have temporarily suspended the homebirth service in the Mid-West following a recent maternal death.

“The staff of UL Hospitals Group and of the homebirth service would like to extend profound sympathies to the family involved on their devastating loss.”
