Reflecting on her own experience, Linda shared with viewers: “After I had Lauren and then Louis, I got pregnant again for the third time.

It was a really heartbreaking time

“I was really excited about it and had my scans and everything was right in the first three months, scans and everything, and then I started to feel a bit strange.”

She continued: “You know, when you just know that it’s not the same as the other pregnancies and something’s not quite right there.

“So I rang the hospital and asked if I could come in and have another scan.”
