Zack Hudson (James Farrar) and Whitney Dean (Shona McGarty) had their worlds torn apart when they discovered that their baby had Edwards’ Syndrome.

Now, in upcoming EastEnders scenes, they are set to make another heart breaking discovery. Edwards’ Syndrome is a rare but serious condition where a baby has extra copies of a chromosome which affects the way it grows or develops.

After receiving the diagnosis, which affects around 3 in every 10,000 births, Whitney made the difficult decision to terminate her pregnancy.

EastEnders were supported through this storyline by SOFT UK and Antenatal Results and Choices, in order to accurately reflect and raise awareness of Edwards’ Syndrome while sensitively portrayed the tough decisions that prospective parents are faced with following a diagnosis.
