Mother reveals devastation of realising her baby had caused her cancer


A devastated mother has revealed how falling pregnant with her daughter was the cause of her exceptionally rare cancer - and she wants other women to be on the lookout for signs of the disease.
Ashley Shaw, 26, from Widnes in Cheshire, was diagnosed with a tumour caused by the cells that attach the placenta to the womb after giving birth to Layla in October 2014.
Just five women are diagnosed in the UK each year with the cancerous growth, called a placental site trophoblastic tumour.
