A probe into the death of a woman taken to hospital to deliver her baby who died in utero is set to begin on Wednesday.
The Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service (COPFS) lodged a first notice last month beginning the Fatal Accident Inquiry (FAI) process in the death of Jacqui Hunter.
Ms Hunter was taken to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee in May 2020 to deliver her baby, who was found to have died in utero the day before.
She died from obstetrics complications.
A preliminary hearing for the FAI is taking place at Dundee Sheriff Court on Wednesday.
The Crown Office has said the probe will look into the circumstances of Ms Hunter’s death, including the care and treatment received at the hospital and nearby Lochee Medical Practice, and to establish if her death could have been avoided.
A spokesman for the Crown Office said: ““We will continue to keep Jacqui Hunter’s family informed and answer any questions they may have about the process during the FAI.”
