Amanda Holden and her daughter pose for tetanus campaign
TELEVISION star Amanda Holden has shown off daughter Hollie, 10 months after the birth which left the Britain’s Got Talent judge fighting for her life.
Holden is launching a campaign to help cut the incidence of newborns suffering from tetanus.
The actress was pictured with her second daughter to encourage other mothers to post pictures of their children online to raise money for vaccinations in a project which has seen Unicef team up with nappy brand Pampers.
Holden, 41, was in a critical condition in hospital for three days following the birth of Hollie in January. She haemorrhaged as doctors removed her placenta, due to a complication from a previous caesarean section, and had to undergo a transfusion.
Tetanus threatens the lives of 130 million women and newborns, although the association between the company and the campaigning organisation has led to the elimination of the problem in eight poorer nations including Uganda and Ghana.
