Let's give Freddie his pillow

This is my friend's daughter Cody holding her baby boy feddie who was born sleeping whist his broken daddy is in the background clearly heartbroken . Cody found out she was gonna have a baby boy and was absolutely over the moon to be fair we all were. She was going to call her baby boy Freddie. Freddie was going to enter a world filled with nothing but love from the most beautiful family I know. 
Cody raised some concerns with her midwife and Dr throughout her pregnancy but was fobbed off and being a 1st time bump mummy trusted their decisions. 
9 months later and Freddie was on his way. Nanny mandy was so excited and Freddie,'s mummy and daddy were filled with nerves excitement and unconditional love.
Sadly when codie was in the delivery room Freddies heartbeat stopped and the most loving family were soccer punched with the devastating news their baby boy had died before he was born. 
Codie at 20 years had to deliver her precious bundle of joy knowing she will never be the mummy she was supposed to be. Instead she had to Bury her baby before he even gave a breath. 
The hospital have admitted fault but are now arguing which staff member to lay the blame on. Freddie has now been cremated but has no plot or pillow to lay his tiny head. I'm asking you all to give whatever you can and let us buy Freddie his forever pillow.
These are the words I was sent from my dearest friend mandy, Freddies nanny xx

From day one she had severe sickness and couldn't even keep water down she was given anti sickness tablets.

went hospital twice with ketones and was sent home with ketones at 4.

She was having growth scans so had more than most and each time there was something flagging up,

Cody was rapidly loosing weight
So much so you could see her cheek bones.

I called mental health
To ask for help and advise I was always turned away.

His tummy was growing really big and was over what it was supposed to be then she had to much fluid and was sent to triage, they monitored him, told her she had polyhydramnios.
told her she had to do 3 days on a blood monitor if she was not diabetic they would induce 1 week later ( at 38 weeks.)

They had no monitors
Was supposed to call her in the next day for one, after 3 days no call I bought a monitor.

She then got the monitor noone called to check her bloods.

No appointment for her induction arrived.

She called triage on the morning of 13 January to say she wasn't right, she was having contractions her mucus plug had blood in it, she was not feeling him move properly her hands and feet were swollen (all signs of stillbirth)

They made her feel stupid and told her to put her feet up they told her not to go in.
She didn't call me until 1am when contractions were 2minutes apart I went right there called triage and took her to hospital.

After 20 minutes they tried to find heart beat and there wasnt

She was taken to a room and they refused my Pleas of a c section on any other interventions.

I demanded a doctor at 4am she arrived at 6am and she stood watching until Freddie was born at 701am 14 January 2019 Cody was 20 years old

On Wednesday the hospital admitted responsibility but can not find the call log (1 hour is missing, just happens to be the hour Cody called) so they can't find the person who told her to put her feet up. So therefore they say there is noone we can actually blame (wait till I feel better then Il be seeing about that)

There was a blood clot which cut off oxygen to the placenta.

So he suffocated.

Had they told her to go in that morning he would be alive.
