A couple from Cambridgeshire have spoken about the heartbreaking impact of losing their daughter as they try to raise awareness of stillbirth.
Vicki Beckett and Bruce Wagstaff from Great Abington were filmed at the Rosie Maternity Hospital in Cambridge for a Channel 4 documentary on stillbirth.
Six months into her pregnancy, Vicki felt their daughter, Ruby, was not moving as much as she had been. Doctors told her that the baby's heart had stopped beating.
The UK has one of the highest rates of stillbirth in the developed world. Around one in every 200 babies is stillborn.
Filmed over two years at the Rosie Hospital, Child of Mine broadcasts on Channel 4 tonight (October 18).
