Olivia Gordon's 'The First Breath'

At 29 weeks pregnant, Olivia Gordon was told that her baby boy had only a 50% chance of survival.

He underwent life saving surgery in the womb at University College Hospital, and survived.

Now, Olivia is sharing their story, the science behind fetal medicine, and her experiences with the NHS in a new book she's been speaking to Helena Wadia. 

'The First Breath' is out on Thursday.
