"Each Christmas as a family we reflect back on the year we have had - looking back to when we were coming up for Jack and Holly’s first Christmas it was especially poignant," she said in a paid-for post for Pampers.

"The development of a premature baby is incredibly nerve-wracking when it is an uncertain start and you want to see them grow and thrive yet not wish away the first moments.

"Seeing them become little chubby, healthy babies within the first year was a true blessing and I will always be grateful for the determination they showed and their feisty characters - although as the years passed they certainly gave me plenty of battles.... yet this is what I wished for when they were laying in incubators looking so vulnerable."

Tana added: "Right now many parents are wishing for the chance to be by the side of their tiny little ones born early, @pampersuk_ire and their partners @vcreateneonatal and @blisscharity are working to make it possible for more contact and communication to be had through technology and the ability to be a part of the first moments for all the family to see via a screen.
