A MUM who lost identical triplets after they were born prematurely is setting up a fundraising page to buy them a headstone.

Savanna Clark gave birth to little Stanley, Charlie and Tommy at 24 weeks in May 2016.

Two of them weighed just a pound and the other 750g.

They were rushed to hospital but suffered brain damage and did not survive.

Miss Clark, who admitted feeling suicidal afterwards, has planned a headstone but never been able to afford one.

Now she has set up a web page in the hope kind-hearted people help her reach her £2,000 target.

The boys are buried at the crematorium in Mersea Road, Colchester.

Miss Clark, 25, said: “A headstone would mean so much to me.

“It’s something I’ve always wanted to do for the boys but never been able to afford, as I’ve struggled on my own.

“Being able to get one would have huge sentimental value and I’d like the boys to be recognised at the crematorium.

“At the moment, no-one knows there are three little boys buried together at the plot.

“When they have a headstone, it’ll put my mind and heart at rest.

“Finally, they’ll be able to rest in peace forever.”

Miss Clark, who lives in Mumford Close, West Bergholt, had an extremely rare monochorionic triplet pregnancy. It only happens once in 100,000 births.

Monozygotic multiple gestations occur when a zygote splits into two or more genetically identical embryos.

“It’s a heart-breaking situation and that’s why I’ve set up the fundraising page," she added.

“My dream is to create a very special headstone but I just don’t have the funds on my own.

“Losing my boys was a horrific time in my life.

“I describe the boys coming into the world as one, two, three and going out of the world as three, two, one.

“Tommy left us on the night of May 12, Charlie on the morning of the 13th and Stanley in the early hours of the 14th.

“It happened over the course of three days and I still think about them every single day.

"I'd appreciate any help I get towards the headstone. It really would put my mind at ease."

Miss Clark has a five-year-old son, Riley, and gave birth to Lola-Rose on November 14.
