The winner of the 2016 Arla Big Milk Inspirational Mum Award was Gemma Dutton

Gemma was nominated by her husband Scott following her unrelenting courage and positive determination from the point they were told that their baby Alexander had stopped growing at 25 weeks. For Alexander’s safety he was to be delivered within a week. When the time came Scott says it’s the single biggest act of courage he had ever seen from anyone first-hand. 
The three months following Alexander’s birth were filled with 10 – 12 hours a day of nappy changing through the incubator doors, doing Drip Feeds, and doing as much as she was allowed to skin-to-skin. Scott says Gemma’s an inspiration to every mummy who sits by the incubator and worries how they’re going to get through it.
