The heartbroken family of a woman who died within minutes of giving birth got a payout and an apology from the HSE yesterday.

Tracey Campbell-Fitzpatrick, 36, passed away in the early hours of Easter Monday 2016 following a “massive” postpartum haemorrhage just after the birth of son Max.

In a letter read to the High Court as her husband and family settled an action over Ms Campbell-Fitzpatrick’s death, the HSE and St Luke’s General Hospital in Kilkenny gave an unreserved apology for “failings in care” at the facility.

The statement from the hospital manager added: “I further apologise for the distress experienced by your family as a result of this tragic loss.

Mr Justice Kevin Cross was told liability was admitted in the case when it went to mediation.
