Woman, 26, desperate to be a mum found hanged after series of miscarriages

A nursery worker who adored children and dreamt of being a mum took her own life after a series of miscarriages, an inquest heard.

Jemma Zoezee, 26, of Cae Ddol, Abergele, was found dead by her husband at their home in North Wales, on December 16 last year.

He paid touching tribute to ‘one of the kindest, caring, yet confident young women I have ever met’ adding: ‘She was full of energy.’

On Thursday, a conclusion of suicide was given following a short inquest in Ruthin.

Jemma and her husband, Anthonio, lived together in a new-build opposite Gwrych Castle, which was used in I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! in 2020 and 2021.

Anthonio said her wife was ‘the sweetest girl I will ever know’ and had long wanted to travel the world.

‘She left a mark on all she met,’ he said.

But she suffered from several miscarriages and spiralled into depression, the hearing was told.

None of her family attended the inquest.

Senior coroner John Gittins said: ‘Given the particular circumstances I am satisfied it was probable her actions were with the intention of ending her life on that day.’

Mr Gittins expressed his ‘sincere condolences’ to Jemma’s loved ones.

Asa Roberts, Jemma’s brother, told Wales Online how spent years being a nanny to families before working in nurseries and adored her niece, Ava-Skye.

He would spend hours on the phone with his sister, he said, but ‘after the first miscarriage we had lost a part of Jemma’.

‘The first miscarriage destroyed Jemma. There was very little support for her,’ Asa said.

‘When you are down, and then have to dive even deeper into your emotions it can be difficult.’

He added: ‘No one explained to her why she kept losing her babies, and the effect mentally put her under an immense amount of pressure.

‘I am so proud of Jem for how hard she fought to be happy, but in the end, her sadness was too much to bear.

‘Children brought so much happiness to Jem’s life, but the pain of losing her babies was too much for her.’

‘We will never be the same without you.’
