Now, the 34-year-old has taken to Instagram stories to share her 'awful' experience with postpartum haemorrhaging. 

She said: "I was pushing for 30 minutes and I remember them saying her head was coming, but then was going back in.

"But then she came out and was crying straight away, she was really responsive and really alert, it was amazing. 

"Then five hours later, I had a haemorrhage which was awful. 

"I was napping but when I stood up I just suddenly lost loads of blood. 

"I had loads of clots and felt really faint. I couldn't reach the buzzer. I don't know if I shouted but someone came in and then I had 12 people on me and I was getting oxygen. 

"My stomach sort of went to the right and got hard. 

"I just stayed calm because I thought, 'I have all these people around me'. 

"But they said to me I was going to theatre and they were going to put me under and I was messaging Gary like 'You're going to have to come back' cause I was thinking, 'where is the baby going?', I was thinking about feeding and all sorts. 

"But, it turned out I didn't need to go to theatre and they just gave me loads of fluids and I felt better."
