Billie Faiers Bares Her Bump For The British Heart Foundation

The seven-months' pregnant TOWIE star was today joined by fellow mums-to-be on Primrose Hill in London to raise awareness for the Fight For Every Heartbeat campaign, which aims to raise awareness of inherited heart conditions.

The campaign is highlighting the 50:50 chance that someone with an inherited heart condition has of passing it on to their unborn child, emphasising the need for more research into these potentially deadly conditions.
The TV personality and model, 24, called for all pregnant women to #BareYourBump in support of the campaign and share their photographs on social media.
Billie, who announced she was expecting a baby with boyfriend Greg Shepherd in April, says, ‘It’s fantastic to see so many pregnant women helping raise awareness of inherited heart conditions for the BHF. We need to do everything we can to raise money and invest in research which can dramatically help those living with inherited heart conditions. Join me today and #BareYourBump for the BHF.’


Amy Thompson, Senior Cardiac Nurse at the BHF, added, ‘An estimated half a million people in the UK could be living with a faulty gene putting them at an unusually high risk of developing heart disease or dying suddenly at a young age. Our hope is that as many expectant mums as possible will join our fight for every heartbeat and share a photo of their own bump, using #BareYourBump, to raise awareness of inherited heart conditions.’

Inherited heart conditions run in families and can affect those you’d least expect, including the young and the fit. BHF researchers have helped us better understand and detect inherited heart conditions and they are working relentlessly towards beating them, but they need the public’s help to fund more research and save more lives.

Want to show your support? #BareYourBump and share a picture on social media to support the BHF’s Fight For Every Heartbeat campaign. You can also text FIGHT to 85080 and give £3 to join the fight against inherited heart conditions.
