A devastated father has been left to pick up the pieces after his bride-to-be and baby girl died during childbirth.

Rebecca Sargeant, from Melbourne in Australia, tragically died on July 20, leaving behind a 15-month-old son and the love of her life, Dale Foster, daily sun post reports. 

Rebecca and Dale had been over the moon when they discovered that they were expecting. Shortly afterwards, Dale popped the question.

The couple, who have a toddler named Jax together, were looking forward to getting married when tragedy struck, Mirror UK reports.

Rebecca was placed into an induced coma after experiencing complications during labour.

The baby, who the pair named Peyton, died in labour and Rebecca soon followed.

"Rebecca put her family first in every single situation," said Rebecca's friend, Liz Jowett.

"She always wanted to help everybody. She was thoughtful and considerate. She would often tell me we had met for a reason.

"She was a great support."

In a recent Facebook post, Rebecca had gushed about her future with Dale writing, "I simply adore both of you.

"You are the best father to our babies. I love you so much and can't wait to continue our journey of love, happiness and family."

A GoFundMe page for Rebecca's family has already raised more than $20 000 (about R280 000).
