Kate Ferdinand opens up on ‘traumatic’ birth

She continued: “I wanted to share this with you. This is me … and let me add this is a much better version of me than the last 10 days.

“After having an emergency c section, and a bit of a traumatic birth I’ve been completely wiped out.

“The happiness has been overwhelming but so have the tears and emotions.

“I’ve felt like I can’t do what I’m meant to be doing with Cree as I haven’t been able to change or feed him consistently which has had me feeling all types of guilt, for Cree, Rio & that I can’t be doing what I normally do for the kids.”

She added: “It’s a whirlwind I just wasn’t expecting … but at the same time the most perfect whirlwind.”

However, Kate went on to say it’s a “dream” to be standing up holding her son.

She said: “When we are stripped of all the things we can normally do, the small things become extra special.

“Feeling so lucky to have my amazing husband and the kids helping me with everything. What an amazing end to a pretty rubbish year.”

In conclusion, Kate offered fellow new mums or mums-to-be some advice.
