Emma, 44, added: “It’s a really really hard watch. When you’re there, it’s absolutely terrifying.
“What is essentially a minute or two feels like an hour. It’s so scary.”
What did This Morning viewers say?
ITV viewers took to Twitter to comment on the emotional scene.
One said: “@thismorning & @EmmaWillis gave me all the feels and took me straight back to my birth 4 weeks ago in the middle of lockdown. Can’t wait to watch, although even the interview made me well up so sure they’ll be lots of tears.”
Furthermore, a second wrote: “Omg @thismorning @EmmaWillis I’ve got tears already!!!”
In addition, a third shared: “Crying at @thismorning with @EmmaWillis #emotional.”
