Kym Marsh speaks about her stillborn baby, Archie

Corrie actress is campaigning for more investment into premature births after giving birth to her stillborn son early

Coronation Street actress Kym Marsh has spoken about the death of her baby, Archie who was stillborn 21 weeks and five days early.


Kym gave birth to Archie, her child with ex-Hollyoaks actor Jamie Lomas in February 2009, and is now campaigning for more investment into premature births with the charity Bliss.

“It’s hard to give birth and never hear those precious moments – the first cries a mother cherishes when their child enters this world,” said Kym at a fund raising event for Bliss.

“To leave the hospital without your baby is even harder. It was the most painful experience I have ever gone through.  Not a day goes by when I don’t think of my beautiful son Archie.”
