The wallet contained precious scan photos of Jay Brewerton's stillborn baby boy.

Joanna Brewerton, of Bexhill, was devastated when she was told her unborn child had died in the womb. She attended the Conquest Hospital on Friday, June 23, where she delivered the baby at 11.06pm.

However, when she left the hospital just after 2pm on Saturday, June 24, a laptop wallet containing precious scan photos of her baby was lost.

She said: “I had given birth just before midnight on June 23, and we left hospital in the afternoon of Saturday, June 24. We lost the wallet between the labour unit and the main hospital car park.

“I have checked everywhere in the hospital every week for five weeks, and still nothing’s been handed in. I don’t mind whoever found it keeping the wallet, I am just hoping they haven’t binned the scan pictures.”

Jay said the hospital does not keep copies of scan photographs, only a record of the measurements of the baby.

She added: “We lost our youngest daughter three years ago and you never in a million years expect to experience another child death.

“I am utterly devastated as it is but I have nothing left of him, and the pictures are the only thing we have showing him alive.”

The laptop wallet is white with a pink rim, with a photo of Disney’s Tinkerbell on the front surrounded by butterflies.
