Tragic mum’s baby doing ‘extremely well’
The surviving baby of Helena Broadbent has finally left hospital and is "doing extremely well".
Baby Helena, named in honour of her mum, was born by emergency caesarean at just 26 weeks - after her mother died when she was flung from a moving car in Keilor Downs last September.
Her partner, William Wilson, 35, was behind the wheel and was charged with dangerous driving causing death.
After four months behind bars, Mr Wilson will tomorrow apply for bail at the Melbourne Magistrates' Court.
The appeal has angered family, who are caring for Ms Broadbent's three kids.
Her brother, Paul Broadbent, told the Herald Sun his sister's daughters, Sophie, Bella and Helena, are happy and healthy.
"All the girls are doing very well," he said.
"Bubs is finally home now an doing extremely well."
Baby Helena spent weeks fighting for life in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of the Royal Women's Hospital.
She was released from hospital in mid January.
Ms Broadbent, 32, told police her partner was threatening to kill her moments before her death, a court previously heard.
Police allege the couple had argued over dirty nappies before Ms Broadbent called triple-0, telling police Mr Wilson had a hammer and was threatening to kill her.
The mother of three was trying to remove her kids' car seats from Mr Wilson's car when he began to drive away.
