Bianca's baby drama

Spoiler alert!

So far Bianca's pregnancy has been anything but trouble-free, and it appears that little will change in the weeks ahead, with the stress leading to dangerous complications for her unborn baby.

Upcoming episodes see Sid inform Bianca that she's showing signs of pre-eclampsia, putting her child's life in danger and leading him to recommend an emergency caesarian.

'[Bianca]'s pretty scared,' her Home and Away alter ego Lisa Gormley tells TV Week. 'She puts a lot of blame on herself because she's been focusing too much on herself and her marriage - she feels she hasn't given the baby what it needs, which is why things are going wrong.'

It's a tough call for Bianca to make, especially as she's not yet at full term and there are risks with the procedure, but she leaves dad-to-be Heath (Dan Ewing) with an equally troubling set of instructions should there be any problems in the delivery room.

'Bianca tells Heath that if it comes down to a choice, he's to make sure Sid saves the child,' Dan Ewing explains. 'Deep down he still has a lot of love for Bianca, so it's pretty heavy for him, even though he's accepted the fact that he and Bianca aren't going to be together in the near future.'

And, sadly, something does go wrong, with Bianca suffering a seizure and Heath forced to stay true to his word, much to April's horror. Although Sid is able to temporarily stabilise her, giving the proud parents a moment with their new son, their joy is cut devastatingly short when Bianca relapses.

'For a Home and Away minute, [Heath]'s over the moon - mother and baby stablise and it's all good,' Dan reveals. 'To not have to make the decision is a huge weight off [his] shoulders and he might let himself start thinking, "Maybe we could be something in the future?" but that doesn't last too long.'

With Bianca's life hanging in the balance, and her premature son not yet out of the woods, will both mother and baby survive?

    i think heath truly love bianca and he deserve her, as much as she deserve him. make them a happy family together. liam don't deserve her cause hes not even there for her when she needs him the most, plus hes moved on so quick when bianca hasn't. please make bianca and heath happy together with both kids.

    I think Heath should just focus on his child Dacey and leave Bianca, Liam and the baby to restoring the damage caused by Heath in the first place and the baby should be made Liams because they are so good together they bring out the best in each other.

    Hi thank you for showing pre-eclampsia I had that with my first child at 36weeks. I didn't suffer any seizures but was a very close call . My daughter came out fine i was just monitored for the next week as my platelets were 35 and blood pressure too high.

    Surely Bianca should just have an abortion. I dont understand the trouble in coming to this conclusion. Everything would be instantly solved. Heath wouldnt be involved, Liam could be a babies dad, and April wouldnt have any regrets. Problem averted...
