‘We went in Thursday evening when my contractions started and after a grueling 22 hours of laboring, me and baby both got sick. My incredible doctors called that our beautiful baby girl was in distress and I had contracted a uterus infection.

Thanking the health professionals who helped her safely welcome her baby, the new mum also got real about caesareans, with a picture of her swollen face.

‘Dr Raymond Wong who has been on this journey with me from the beginning of my pregnancy kept me and my baby safe and calm in one of the scariest most precious moments of my life. Sunday was delivered via emergency Caesarian at 8.59pm and from every single doctor, nurse, PA I encountered in my four days in hospital I felt nothing but confidence from.

‘Most people get excited to leave hospital but I am a little sad because I love you all so much! The first photo was taken 2 days after my delivery and the second photo was taken one day after. I wanted to share both so you can see the real real. I was incredibly swollen after surgery and my feet and legs still are! C section recovery is no joke.’
