Lauren Goodyer: I need to understand how my daughter died for my own sanity

Reality TV star Lauren Goodger spoke about the death of her young daughter Lorena, revealing that she needed to “understand how she died for her own sanity”.

This month, The Only Way star Essex, 35, revealed on Instagram that her daughter had passed away shortly after giving birth.

Speaking to The Sun, Goodger recalled the tragic loss of her newborn daughter and revealed that she was doing an autopsy to try to fully understand why Lorena died.

She told the newspaper: “I went to the hospital thinking I was going home with a little girl but I came home with nothing.

“Lorena is a healthy baby and it’s a textbook pregnancy.

“They thought her oxygen might have been limited because she had two knots in her umbilical cord but normally babies can still get enough oxygen despite that.

“This is why I am doing an autopsy. I need to understand medically how she died of my own sanity.”

Goodger and partner Charles Dury also have daughter Larose, born in July 2021.

Goodger, who joined the ITV reality show as one of its original cast members in 2010, added: “Lorena should be here with me. I hugged her and she looked like she was sleeping. I thought she would wake up.

“Since Lorena passed away, I have received numerous messages from other women who have been through this.

“I wanted to talk about her death to help other parents get through this. I want them to know that they are not alone.”

Explaining the birthing process, Goodger continued: “I was put in a private room and when the baby was born, the room started to fill up with doctors. They said she had rheumatic fever and took her aside.

“Ten doctors started working with her. They gave her chest compressions and adrenaline injections.

“Charlie was shattered, he was screaming, ‘Please save my baby.’

“I was in shock. My midwife was with me and she said, ‘She’ll be fine.’ I thought she would be fine.”

She added: “It was a very emotional evening, in tears, crying and crying. I stayed up all night with her and the next day the charity group arrived.

“They did the footprints and her hands and then put on a cast.

“I have some of her curls and they gave us a candle for her. A photographer was organized and they took some nice pictures.
