Thousands raised for family of mum who died during c-section

A GO Fund Me page started for Glynn Sheppard following the death of his wife this week has raised $23,255 in three days.

At 5pm yesterday, 394 people had donated to the fund. On Thursday, the family thanked supporters for the monetary donations, as well as clothes, linen and more items.

The Rockhampton woman suffered complications and died in theatre on Monday as she delivered baby Willa (pictured).

The death has sparked an investigation by the hospital and Queensland Health though the Queensland Nurses Union says the tragedy was not the result of any staffing or safety issues.
