“They needed to get her out immediately,” Laura continued. “So, there were complications and it wasn’t the easiest of births. But I was just so happy that she was out and in the world that my memory of it is not traumatic.”
On the other hand, Matty J found it incredibly tough not being able to assist in easing his partner’s pain.
“It was brutal, sitting on the sidelines watching her get belted like that. I’m going, ‘This is not how I thought it would work,'” the 32-year-old added, turning to Byrne:
“I just wanted to help you as best I could. But there is nothing you can really do other than, like, calling a midwife and holding your hand.”
Laura had previously opened up about welcoming her first child to the world on an episode of Life Uncut – the podcast she shares with fellow Bachie co-host Brittany Hockley.
“They don’t call it labour for no reason – it is definitely very painful,” she said. “I originally wanted to do a natural birth but I ended up having to opt for an epidural because I couldn’t manage my pain expectations.”
