A woman from Cornwall who's campaigning to raise awareness of Sepsis after her son died has become a mother again.
Melissa Mead's one-year-old son William died after medics repeatedly failed to spot the symptoms of the condition.
She has now given birth to another son named Arthur William Mead - paying tribute to his older brother.
William died in December 2014 after an NHS helpline failed to identify the seriousness of his illness.
Melissa has since been campaigning for a public health campaign into the disease.
She says GPs, parents, teachers and hospitals need to know what the disease is after the call-handler on the NHS 111 helpline failed to notice her son was suffering from the blood infection.
The government has apologised after a damning report condemned the NHS out-of-hours system for failing to recognise William's symptoms.
