Chloe Madeley speaks on her parents Richard and Judy

“I felt very isolated, very alone. [I was] quite depressed and quite freaked out. I also don’t think it helped at the time that James and I were still living in the Midlands and I was away from all my friends and family,” Chloe told the Midwife Pip podcast.

She added: “Whereas now if I have a bad day…I just get in the car and go to my parents.”

Chloe continued: “Just being in my family home with my mum and dad, who are also obsessed with Bodhi, I just catch my breath again and come back down to earth. I kind of reconnect with everything I love about my life.”

Opening up about her C-section, Chloe said: “Don’t think that because you expect your body to do something, it will, and don’t think you should attach any kind of emotion to that whatsoever.

“I could never have predicted that I’d end up getting an emergency c-section, or why, and I could never have predicted that breastfeeding would come so naturally to both my body and my baby.”
