The mother of a newborn who sadly died in a baby sling has thanked the NSW community for rallying around them during such a difficult time.
Friends of the couple at the North Entrance Surf Club have set up a GoFundMe page to support the family following the tragic and sudden death of baby Harvey.
Tattika Dunn, 36, had reportedly attended a health care centre in Killarney Vale, on the Central Coast, for a post-natal appointment on April 8 when she discovered the three-week-old boy was unresponsive.
NSW Police said CPR was performed on the infant at the scene but he could not be saved.
“Just wanted to do a shout out, a massive thank you to a massive group of people who came together and helped me when I couldn’t help myself,” Ms Dunn reportedly posted on Facebook.
“I cannot go into detail as it’s still very raw and my heart feels like it’s been ripped in a million pieces but on the 8th of last month whilst going for a routine check up with my 3 week old precious baby boy Harvey passed, it happened for ‘no known reason’ nothing can be explained, a very much loved family member was taken from this world, he had a mum a dad and 4 year old twin brothers who loved him more then anything!” the Daily Telegraph reported the mum saying on social media.
“When one of our worst nightmares came to play a community stood up and helped do things I just couldn’t, these people are now like family,” she reportedly wrote.
