Australian cricket legend Glenn McGrath has shared the terrifying reality of the birth of his third child, admitting he feared he could lose wife Sara and his baby.
In an interview with Stellar, Glenn and Sara McGrath detailed how baby Madison came into the world seven weeks premature, after Sara suffered hyperemesis gravidarum – the same condition the Duchess of Cambridge suffers from.
“I had the worst pregnancy — I’d go to the shopping centre and throw up in every other bin. And it didn’t stop at three months,” she told the magazine.
At 33 weeks pregnant, McGrath said she woke with a strange pain in her ear. After being assessed by a doctor, she was sent straight to hospital. She had been diagnosed with pre-eclampsia.
