|Former Coronation Street star Kate Ford has got behind a campaign to honour the UK's midwives, doctors, nurses and paramedics who work tirelessly to save the lives of special care infants.
Kate, who played Tracey Barlow in the popular ITV1 soap, was a premature baby herself and therefore says she has first-hand experience of the excellent service provided by healthcare professionals.
The actress, who weighed just 4lbs when she was born, said that the pleasant experience she had when giving birth to her own baby, Otis, was largely down to her helpful midwife.
