Jodie Barden's six-year-old daughter Ella has a rare genetic disorder which means she has a life expectancy of just 12.
Now Jodie, 27, from Witham, has just discovered that her unborn child, also carries the gene for Cockayne Syndrome.
It's a life-shortening, genetic disorder. Most sufferers die before they become teenagers. The syndrome affects two babies in every million and is incurable.
