Bittersweet time for mum

She will enjoy time with her five-week-old twins, but will also remember her son Korben, who died from SIDS more than a year ago.

Korben was eight months old when he died. �It was devastating,� Ms Bassett said.

�It was probably like tearing your heart out and stomping on it.

�It doesn�t get easier.�

When Ms Bassett found out she was pregnant with pigeon pair twins, it was like a rollercoaster of emotions.

�I always wanted a boy and girl,� she said.

�It was good but sad.

�It�s sad knowing they won�t know Korben.�

She said her partner James was �pretty stoked� to be a father to twins.

Ms Bassett said her babies Lottie and Kohen were healthy and content.

�It feels good,� she said. �I am going to be a helicopter mother.�
