An inquest into the death of a baby just half an hour after birth at Ipswich Hospital is beginning on Monday.
Emma Strachan, 29, from near Framlingham, went into spontaneous labour on January 24 this year with the plan to deliver her baby in the breech position.
However, her baby girl Bonnie May was born in a very poor condition.
Tragically, Bonnie did not respond to efforts to resuscitate her and staff were unable to save her.
Specialist medical negligence lawyers Irwin Mitchell will represent Mrs Strachan and her husband, James, at the inquest.
It is expected to last for two days and is being held at the IP City Centre on Bath Street, Ipswich.
Guy Forster, a partner in the expert medical negligence team at Irwin Mitchell said: “The family has had such a distressing time this past eight months and they are desperate for answers as to what happened.
