Michelle Wilkins had her baby girl mercilessly taken from her early in 2015.
At seven months pregnant, Wilkins was attacked by a woman named Dynel Lane, after she met her regarding baby clothes that Lane was alleging selling.
As Wilkins attempted to leave Lane’s house, she grabbed her in the basement, hit her in the with a lava lamp, then stabbed her with broken glass and knives.
Lane slit Wilkins open, took the foetus, and then left her alone in a bath.
The vicious attack caused the baby’s death, but Wilkins somehow survived.
Despite enduring something of horror films and then the court case, which saw Lane sentenced to 100 years in jail, Wilkins has bravely spoken out.
"There's no answer to the question, why does somebody do this," the now 27-year-old told the Mirror.
The first time Wilkins met her baby was two days after the attack, lying in hospital.
"It shouldn't be anyone's first moments with their daughter - holding, dressing and singing to a cold body.
"Those were the only moments with my daughter, so I treasure them. But it was so very sad."
