Amanda and her husband Chris Hughes lost Theo in 2011 when he tragically died in the womb during pregnancy.

The couple are parents to two daughters – Lexi, 15, and Hollie, nine.

Back in July last year, Amanda spoke of her heartbreaking miscarriage on the BBC's Dear NHS Superstars special show.

"I remember waking up and thinking I hadn't felt my baby kick for most of the night which was unusual because he was so active," she said.

"I tried all the things they tell you to do, but he wasn't moving. But I didn't panic."

Amanda went on: "Luckily for us, an obstetrician was coming past and [close friend] Jackie said to the obstetrician, 'Please can you go in, I can't hear the patient's baby's heartbeat', and then I heard this guttural screaming.

"It was the most bizarre thing that's ever happened to me because it was me. I didn't know I was doing it. I had no control over myself, I thought it was another person making the noise."

Amanda opted to have a C-section as she couldn't put herself through the labour, as she had to deliver the baby.

She went on: "Theo was put into a little room so his body could be preserved and we could go and see him as much or as little as we wanted.

"Jackie talked to me about the keepsakes we could have, to remind ourselves of Theo forever. We got his footprints and a little bit of his hair and the blanket he was born in."
