The Block's Clint & Hannah Reveal All About Health Crisis

This weeks charity challenge has hit home for The Block’s Hannah and Clint.

Hannah has become overcome with emotion when the teams meet a mum-of-three whose son has been in hospital for five months battling a brain tumour.

The parents-of-two have revealed that they know too well the terror of seeing a child in need of medical care.

When Hannah and Clint’s youngest, Poppy, was born too quickly,
she stopped breathing.

‘They spent about six minutes resuscitating her when she was born,’ Hannah, 31, tells New Idea.

‘I had a healthy pregnancy, a pretty normal birth. She was my second child, the baby should just be on my chest.’

Clint, 34, has remembered those six minutes as the longest of his life, saying Emotionally, Hannah went through so much,’ he says.

‘Just the delivery and then Poppy. I was trying to console Hannah, but then you see a team of five just working on this tiny body. At that stage, you’re not meant to go through that. It was very frightening.’

Now a happy and healthy three-year-old little sister to Finn, five, Poppy’s health scare helped her parents treasure their family of four.
