In the background, her son Sonny was seated reading a book.

‘When I was pregnant with my first child, I feverishly inhaled One Born Every Minute, read Ina May Gaskin, and obsessed over my hospital bag,’ she recalled.

‘I did NOT think at all about what life with a newborn would be like, (overwhelmed pram buying aside) or breastfeeding, or any of that. Just. The. Birth. Perhaps I’m a dingus (Narrator: she was) but it’s very hard to imagine life as a parent until you are one.’

Zoë then listed the things she’d experienced, in order to help other expectant mums.

Lessons learned: 'Once you give birth, your baby needs feeding every two hours. (I genuinely did not know this.) Also getting them back to sleep post-feed can take an hour. (Mine were soooo gasssssy),' she wrote

‘Preparing your hips, glutes, pelvis and core for pregnancy, birth and baby-holdin’ with Pilates will pay ENORMOUS DIVIDENDS.

‘Flu symptoms while [breastfeeding]? Assume mastitis until proven otherwise.

‘A birthing class will teach you a LOT about the physicality and physiology and pace of labour and birth. Soo much s**t I didn’t know.

She also admitted she had gestational diabetes during one of her pregnancies, noting ‘it makes you eat healthier’.

Zoë then advised fans to see a professional should they have groin, pubic or back pain, adding she saw an osteopath in between her pregnancies.

‘Baby clothes with flounce or buttons are a no. Just zips. Just stretch,’ she continued.

‘Reading too many books, forums and posts like this will confuse and exasperate the shit out of you. Do what YOU feel is best, and if you are struggling, get professional doula/lactation/midwife help.’
