'I Needed To Wear A Diaper For Two Weeks After Giving Birth'
Parenting Commentator / July 20 2016
So many mothers gloss over the nastier aspects of pregnancy and childbirth but former Home and Away star Tammin Sursok is telling it like it is.
The 32-year-old mother to daughter Phoenix has told how she had to wear an “adult-sized” nappy for two weeks after giving birth and how sex after birth was painful.
"Go on, give it a go," she wrote. "I’d say the forecast is a 95 per cent chance of razor blades."
She also dismissed the idea that women feel radiant, explaining in her blog Bottles & Heels: ‘I was so beyond exhausted I couldn’t even fathom squeezing my elephant boobs into a modest-sized bra.’
The Pretty Little Liars star, who is married to Hollywood producer Sean McEwen, is hoping to produce a sibling for Phoenix.
I grew up in New Zealand, moved to London in my early 20s to work on British newspapers then moved to Australia when I was pregnant with my first child. I write a newspaper column, celebrity interviews and a parenting page. I also do TV and radio commentary, podcasting and host corporate events. I’ve also published a book on parenting, The Smallest Things. However, my greatest role – and the one I’m most proud of – is parenting my daughters, Eliza and Lilibelle, who are 17 and 14.
