"My boyfriend kept saying to me, 'pain is temporary'. Temporary, it is temporary! Oh my God it is horrible! Leave me alone! I am just going to cry!

"I woke up in the middle of the night – randomly – and I was like: 'Oh my god I am really scared!' I just got really terrified of having to push it out," she said of her labour worries.
