Brax comforts Heath
Brax comforts Heath

Heath (Dan Ewing) and Bianca (Lisa Gormley) struggle to come to terms with the sudden death of their young son Rocco. Heath wonders if they somehow caused it.

Bianca is unable to stay in the house her son died in and leaves Heath to go stay at Irene's. With Bianca gone, a devastated Heath breaks down in grief, and Brax comforts him.

"It's extremely tough for both of them" Dan told TV Week. "Heath certainly wants to get through this together, but Bianca, goes into shutdown mode."



Psychologist Dr Janet Hall has praised Channel 7 for tackling an important subject but warned some viewers would be deeply affected. "This is a traumatic issue for parents."

Debbie Chen, from SIDS and Kids Australia said "We were very impressed with the portrayal of the episodes and would be fully supportive of being involved in the development of the story going forward."

SIDS and Kids provides counseling support in all states and territories. For more information go to the SIDS and Kids website or call their 24 hours bereavement support line on 1300 308 307.
