Tameside mum Rachel Hales,from Ashton,called her son Harley her "little miracle" after having experienced the trauma of losing two prematurely born children and having four miscarriages
She finally became pregnant again with Harley, however this did not run smoothly either.
After collapsing on the bathroom floor she went into labour after just 28 weeks and Harley was born prematurely and put on a life support machine where he contracted several infections.
Harley was under the care of experts at Tameside Hospital for nearly three months where he made a full recovery
and is now a thriving eight month old baby boy.
