The arrival of a child into the world can be a bittersweet time for a family, where a loved one is not doing so well themselves. This is illustrated in heart-wrenching detail in Taylor Masilotti’s viral video.
Taylor is currently pregnant, and she looked forward to celebrating each milestone with her beloved mother, Donna Callender.
Sadly, however, Taylor’s pregnancy journey has been bittersweet, as Donna was diagnosed with terminal brain and lung cancer.
When Donna was too weak to make it to Taylor’s scan revealing the baby’s gender, Taylor made arrangements to bring the scan to her.
In a moving video shared by Taylor to Facebook, she is seen lying in bed with Donna as the pair find out that the baby is a girl.
In a devastating twist of fate, Donna passed away just three days later.
Sharing footage of the special hospital appointment to Facebook, Taylor wrote: “Wednesday afternoon was one of my forever favourite memories I got to share with my mum. I got to lay next to her, hold her hand, and cry happy tears while we found out the gender of the baby.”
“I can’t thank the hospital enough for allowing this to happen. For allowing me to create my last memory with my mum! I am forever grateful, I love you so much,” she added.
