After being rushed to hospital in an ambulance, Lauren was taken into a private room where doctors said Lorena had a low heart rate.

"Ten doctors started working on her,” the former The Only Way is Essex star told The Sun. “They were doing chest compressions and giving her adrenaline."

Lauren went on to explain that her partner Charles – with whom she shares her one-year-old daughter Larose – was ‘in pieces’ and Lauren was ‘in shock'.

She said: “Charlie was in pieces, he was screaming, ‘Please save my baby.’"

After the medical staff informed Lauren that her baby had died, she was left unable to move in her ‘bloodied sheets for four hours’."

She added: “I thought they’d found a heartbeat but they told me they hadn’t. I am not sure why they said she had one, maybe it was just a movement or from the adrenaline.”

Lauren is now awaiting the results from her daughter’s autopsy to understand why she passed away.

Sharing a black and white photo of her holding Lorena’s hand, she wrote: “She was the most beautiful healthy baby I’ve ever seen just like her sister @babylarose.x … words can’t describe as a mother losing your baby that I carried for all these months perfectly and gave birth too for my angel to be taken from me.”

She continued: “She was fine & healthy but I am not going into detail right now just know that there was nothing wrong with her or myself she was perfect I can’t understand it she is so so beautiful Larose twin so similar.

“I am broken."

Lauren and Charles thanked the public for their outpouring of support and condolences after they opened up about the death of their daughter.

A spokesperson for Lauren has responded to the public on her behalf and said both Lauren and Charles are ‘overwhelmed and touched’ by the messages.

“Lauren and Charles would like to thank everyone for their amazing support at this hard time,” the spokesperson told OK!.

“The messages have been so lovely and even though it takes no pain away it really has helped to see how much support there is for them."
