The family of 38-year-old Ashlee Good released a statement on Sunday after the mother was fatally stabbed at Bondi Junction on Saturday.

‘Today we are reeling from the terrible loss of Ashlee, a beautiful mother, daughter, sister, partner, friend, all round outstanding human and so much more,’ it read.

‘We appreciate the well-wishes and thoughts of members of the Australian public who have expressed an outpouring of love for Ashlee and our baby girl.’

Ms Good’s nine-month-old baby girl was also stabbed and remains in hospital in a serious but stable condition.

‘We are so grateful for the expert care and attention of the medical team at Sydney Children’s Hospital,’ the statement read.

‘We would also like to thank the New South Wales Police for their kindness and diligence in this tragedy and emergency services for getting our baby the care she needed as quickly as possible.

‘To the two men who held and cared for our baby when Ashlee could not – words cannot express our gratitude.’

The family of 38-year-old Ashlee Good released a statement on Sunday after the mother was fatally stabbed at Bondi Junction on Saturday 

The family’s statement comes after details emerge about what happened the moment Dr Good and her baby were attacked.

The dying mother threw her injured baby into the arms of two strangers and selflessly begged them to help the infant. 

The hero who took the baby was identified on Nine News shortly after tragedy.

‘The baby got stabbed and, yeah, the mum got stabbed,’ he said. ‘The mum came over with the baby and threw it at me.

The man said he used clothes from a store to try to stem the baby’s bleeding. 

‘I just helped by holding the baby… and trying to compress the baby.’

The two brothers stayed with the mother as they waited for emergency services.

‘(It was) very bad… a lot of the blood on the floor… hope the baby’s alright,’ the other brother said.

Another witness, a worker at the shopping centre, recalled seeing a mother screaming on the level above. 

‘I see a mother and maybe her partner with a baby in a pram,’ she told Nine News.

‘She’s screaming really, really loudly. She’s running back and forth not knowing what to do.

‘Then she comes back to the pram and picks up her baby and there’s just blood all over her back.

‘The scream was unforgettable, it was the scariest thing I’ve ever seen.

‘My co-worker took me, we locked all the doors, had to turn off all the lights and doors’.

Heartbreaking images at the scene showed the baby being taken away in an ambulance.

Just 12 weeks after her little girl was born, Dr Good posted a heartfelt message to social media about being a mother.

‘It’s almost too much to put into words,’ she posted.

‘The love. The happiness. The fears. The new world. The new me; one that I’m still discovering as I enter motherhood and complete the so-called fourth trimester.

‘It’s like experiencing your heart swell with love whilst navigating anxiety for the first time.

‘Feeling so proud, and then so overwhelmed. The dichotomy of it all.

‘Pure joy and extraordinary exhaustion blended with emotions you’ve never felt before.’

She went on to say that it’s a parent is ‘the most outstandingly beautiful gift one can ever receive’.

She added: ‘Sitting here feeling so deeply thankful, and still pinching myself she’s ours.

‘I love her so much.’
