As her condition deteriorated in September, doctors at Good Hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield took the decision to put her on a ventilator and deliver her baby.
Dua Maryam was born healthy, but her mother was never able to hold her and passed away on 1 November.
At their home in Birmingham, her devastated husband Majid Ghafur is now caring for their five daughters, Noor, 13; Imaan, 11; Hibbah, 8; Ayesha, 7 and newborn Dua Maryam.
Mr Ghafur, 40, stated “She didn’t even know if she’d had a baby girl or a boy”.
“It’s very sad, very sad,” he said.
“It was just shocking. She didn’t have a chance to talk to me, five minutes even, to tell me about the daughters, you know, what to do.
