“I am delighted to be an Ambassador for Baby Lifeline’s Monitoring for Mums Appeal and join this prestigious charity in supporting the care of pregnant women and their babies.

I have seen first hand the devastating effect loss of a new life can bring families and we should strive to make sure fewer people have to experience this unthinkable circumstance. Baby Lifeline supports the care of pregnant women and newborn babies all over the UK and is growing to reach even more of those in need.

The Monitoring for Mums Appeal aims to raise £5 million to fund desperately needed fetal monitoring equipment to assist with reducing the number of stillbirths and help to save babies lives. Please do all you can to support this worthy cause.”
