The Project’s Carrie Bickmore has admitted that her first experience with child birth left her “traumatised”.
Chatting to her co-host Tommy Little on their radio show Hit Network, the mum-of-two says she needed to go through counselling to deal with childbirth for the second time.
“Giving birth is a full on thing, it’s beautiful, it’s special, but it’s also traumatic,” she said.
“It’s painful, I would have done anything to have the experience erased from my mind. I found it so traumatic come the birth of my second child I actually had counselling to get myself OK to be able to give birth to Evie because I was so scared after the first experience."
She continued: “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.”
Carrie gave birth to her daughter Evie last March, which is her first child with her husband Chris Walker.
She also has a seven-year-old son named Oliver with her late husband Greg Lange, who passed away in 2010 from brain cancer.
