Baby Emmie beats the odds 50,000 to one

Callie Martin had three miscarriages - and when she was told she was suffering from an ectopic pregnancy - her dreams of having a baby were shattered. With the pregnancy standing no chance of survival, she was rushed in for emergency surgery, but Callie Martin was in for a big surprise.

After invasive surgery following an ectopic pregnancy, one month later, doctors realised that there had actually been twins and a second egg had secretly survived the trauma of surgery and was developing normally in her uterus.

Six months on beating odds of 50,000 to one - baby Emmie was born, we're joined by Callie, her partner Kailan and baby Emmie this morning.

One in four experience mental health problems

People suffering from a mental illness are so worried about the stigma of it they find it hard to discuss even with their closest relatives. One in four people experience mental health problems yet 60% of people are waiting over a year to tell anyone what they're going through.

New figures released on Thursday come from Mind and Rethink Mental Illness. They're launching Time to Talk today and the DPM's office is recognising Mental Health Heroes at an awards ceremony this afternoon to mark Time To Talk Day.

We're joined by actress and presenter Denise Welch who tells us about her own struggles with mental illness and why we shouldn't be afraid to speak out.
