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.
