About 20 weeks into her pregnancy, doctors informed Charlotte Szakacs and her husband Atilla that their baby daughter had multiple physiological deformities and would not survive for long after birth.
Their baby daughter indeed unfortunately passed away a few weeks after birth. Charlotte and Atilla were distraught but vowed to spend more time with their daughter before laying her to rest as a way of healing and gaining closure.

They therefore lived with their dead baby daughter as normally as they could, preserving her body in a refrigerated pram and taking her for walks.
Charlotte then decided to share her story after her friends encouraged her to, noting that this could help other mothers who had lost their babies early to go through a healing process.
The couple had gotten married in 2015 and their baby daughter was their first child.
