‘The more I think about it, the more I panic and worry it’s going to be horrific, so I think we’re just going to go with the flow. I would love a nice, quick and natural birth,’ she wrote in her OK! magazine blog.
‘I’d rather not have an epidural as the thought of it freaks me out, but one thing the midwife did say was that my hips are so small and narrow that it’s harder for birth but I’m not sure why.’
