Television presenter Carrie Bickmore has said she was so traumatised from giving birth to her first son, Oliver, in 2007, she needed counselling before birthing her second child, Evie, in 2015.
“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 on her Hit Network radio program this morning.
“It’s painful, I would have done anything to have the experience erased from my mind.”
