I didn't get to bond with my bump

The young mum went through it all suffering blackouts and being in an induced coma and now can't remember carrying and having her little girl.
At first doctors thought Tina had a mental health condition, but after a month - and some research by her big sisters - she was diagnosed with a form of encephalitis, a disease virtually unknown but which affects 6,000 people a year in the UK.
