Laura Tobin fights tears on GMB as she thanks Sarah Brown for 'life saving research' after going into labour at 27 weeks
LAURA Tobin was left close to tears as she shared her story of going into early labour on Good Morning Britain today.
The TV meteorologist was asked about the birth of daughter Charlotte after Sarah Brown, the former Prime Minister's wife, opened up about her life-saving research into the causes of premature birth.
Sarah’s daughter Jennifer was only 10 days old when she suffered a fatal brain haemorrhage in 2002.
Sarah and husband Gordon have gone on to have two sons John, 7, and Fraser, 4, and have since set up the Jennifer Brown Research Laboratory to give premature babies a better start in life.
GMB host Susanna Reid asked an emotional Sarah: "I just wonder whether all of this has helped you process what happened?
"You have done so much good and saved so many lives, what does that do for you?"

"I'll be really honest with you Susanna, if I could turn back the clock and keep my baby I would do that, and none of this would have followed," she admitted.
"But things happen in our life and we have to build from there. For me it was investing in that laboratory, investing in building something that would find answers, there's been all kind of areas of research, the stress in babies, and what happens afterwards so that babies can grow."
Susanna then turned to Laura, 40, about her experience after her only daughter Charlotte arrived dangerously early.

She continued: "The oxygen thing, if it's too high, it's bad for their eyes. If it's too low, it is bad for the brain.
"I had no idea that you were a part of (researching) that. So thank you."
