I remember, as a child, seeing a pregnant Tina Heath having an ultrasound scan live on Blue Peter. What I didn’t realise was that she was approached to do it by a London hospital as women were scared this new technology would damage their babies, and take up was low.
That makes her truly a pioneer for the millions of us who have heard our baby’s heartbeat that way since.
On Travellers' Tales this week you can also hear her tell the story of her adoption as ‘ugly baby’ (her words!) by a father who instantly saw her as the beautiful daughter he’d been longing for, and the wonderful parallels between that and the day she started her faith journey.
Hope you can join me, with Tina Heath, on Sunday 3rd August at 7pm, on Premier Christian Radio.
