Stacey Solomon ‘traumatised’ by Rex’s birth but baby girl arrived to ‘pure joy’, doula says10/07/2021
Stacey Solomon and Joe Swash were overjoyed to meet their long-awaited little girl on Tuesday.
The bundle of joy arrived safely at Pickle Cottage – Joe and Stacey’s million-pound country home – and we’re sure Stacey was relieved to feel calm, as her last birth was so traumatic.
Stacey revealed she panicked during her labour with Rex because Joe screamed over blood.
The Loose Women star told fans on Instagram: “All I could hear was ‘Are you sure there should be that much blood there?’”
Thankfully Dani Diosi, doula and author of ‘Hypnobirthing – Breathing in Short Pants’, says the calm birth of their little princess will be a ‘healing’ experience for the smitten mum.
The Hypnosis for Birth Practitioner exclusively tells OK!: “Watching Stacey’s sweet video I got the sense that this pregnancy and birth was a very healing one for her.
“She was taken by surprise by her early labour with Rex and felt traumatised by it all, but the overall feeling from this video was one of pure and utter awe-filled joy.”
Dani explains it’s important for other pregnant women to see Stacey’s happy video, especially if their previous birth experience wasn’t what they wanted or expected.
Stacey’s intimate footage, shared on Instagram after the birth, was a wholesome insight into her tight-knit family and the love her baby girl will be showered with.
The tap-to-tidy star and mum-of-four let fans see the reality of labour and the very normal mess that comes with it, from strong contractions to disheveled hair and blood on her oversized shirt.
“She’s perfectly imperfect,” says Dani. “And that’s why we love her!”
But she also shows good humour, smiles and genuine excitement about meeting her little girl.
That’s what women need to see, says Dani, who adds: “Birth is portrayed as frightening, painful and dangerous, so many approach it with adrenaline racing through their bodies.
“Adrenaline makes our bodies go into attack mode, and you can’t have a baby if you’re about to be attacked!”
She continues: “People have been traumatised by birth experiences, but those who have a good experience don’t talk about it in case they make others feel bad.”
We hope Stacey continues to tell her joy-filled birth story to help other expectant mums feel safe, happy and excited for their little ones’ arrival!
