An innocent baby passed away after being kissed by her mother!

Our mothers are the first person to caress us once we are, but what if the first touch or first kiss that a mother gave to his new born baby is the reason why the baby would have sickness and pass away? How painful would it be if the one who gave life to the baby would also be the reason why the innocent baby's life would be in danger?

Ruth Schofield gave birth to her adorable and healthy baby girl, but after 11 days, she was also the reason why her little angel passed away.

When she kissed her newborn daughter, Ruth Schofield had no idea she was putting the baby's life at risk.

But days later, little Jennifer died - after contracting a common virus from her mother's lips.

An inquest into the baby's death yesterday heard Miss Schofield had unknowingly caught the herpes simplex virus - a common cause of cold sores - around a fortnight before the birth.

The sad mother said,  'The day she died it was a total shock. I just could not believe it.'It was only afterwards we discovered she had contracted HSV. Apparently it was in all her organs - brain, liver, kidneys - everything. On the last day her tiny body just shut down.'

She went on to develop several mouth ulcers but there was no time for antibodies to form and be passed on to her child in the womb, so Jennifer was born with no resistance to the condition.

The HSV virus is notoriously hard to detect and can be passed from mother to baby, through contact including breastfeeding, with devastating consequences.

Complications can include cerebral palsy, blindness and seizures.

The doctors did not know that the baby already claimed the disease so they weren't able to give the baby the treatment that she needed before she gave her last breath.
