"Struggling a bit today. Day 9" she wrote before detailing her struggle to breastfeed.

"I look at my body and I feel like it will never be the same again. Having such tearful moments where I can’t cope with anything, even small things," she wrote.

"Torn between the two kids. The new one is like a new love, I am fascinated and besotted by her and she needs me more than she needs anyone else. Then the first one and I miss each other so much we are heartbroken.

"It probably works in her favour I had a c section because she knows where I will be (usually in bed) and comes to find me and do activity books on the bed together."

She continued: "I also can’t tell if I’m getting ill or if I’m just exhausted and healing. Everyone keeps saying 'don’t do too much or you won’t get better' but how much is too much? "When people say 'you overdid it' it makes you feel like all your pain and suffering is your own fault. God I sound morbid haahahahaha WHO EVEN AM I."

The 'Only Love Can Hurt Like This' singer announced in September she was expecting her second child, after six rounds of IVF.

Announcing the birth of her second daughter, she wrote: "This baby couldn't be more loved or wanted if she tried (yes I have two gals). I'm now going through the constant worry of bottle vs breast, last time I breast fed exclusively and I think it was too hard!

"I don't know if I [want to] put myself through that this time..... but I'm trying anyway. And my nipples are on fire. Lost a litre of blood and I'm in so much pain despite the pain killers. The joys!"
