“I think, arrogantly, I was like, ‘I’ve had two, it can’t be that hard to have another one’,” she told the magazine. “By then there’s already chaos, there’s already mess, so what’s adding another one? But it was pretty full on. And it certainly challenged me in ways I didn’t know were possible.”
At one point, Carrie admitted she started to consider if she could be suffering from postnatal depression as her daughter was struggling to settle while feeding and wasn’t sleeping much.
“I literally couldn’t put her down without her being uncomfortable. So I held her pretty much for six weeks straight, which meant I didn’t sleep,” she added. However, the TV star said she finally managed to overcome the dark days and said her daughter is now super tactile and is always laughing and cuddling her.
Meanwhile, Carrie first revealed she’d seen a psychologist ahead of her first daughter Evie’s birth in 2017, telling her her Hit Network radio show at the time: “Giving birth is a full on thing, it’s beautiful, it’s special, but it’s also traumatic… It’s painful, I would have done anything to have the experience erased from my mind.”
She added: “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 suffered a severe haemorrhage 10 days after giving birth to her son Oliver, who she welcomed with her late husband Greg Lange, meaning she had to have an operation and blood transfusions to save her life.
