Carrie Bickmore speaks openly about her child birth experience and why she needed the help of a professional ahead of the birth of her second child.
While on air for her HIT Network radio program, Carrie, 36, said, “Giving birth is a full on thing, it’s beautiful, it’s special, but it’s also traumatic.”
“It’s painful, I would have done anything to have the experience erased from my mind,” she added.
“I found it so traumatic come the birth of my second child I actually had counselling to get myself okay to be able to give birth to Evie because I was so scared after the first experience” she said.
“They say you forget and that’s why you go back again. I never forgot.”
“The funniest part, it’s hard to get your head around what actually happens. A big thing comes out of a very small place,” she concluded.
Carrie is a mum of two – daughter Evie and son Ollie, with her late husband Greg Lange.
