On Wednesday, Carrie Bickmore opened up to her friend and ex-colleague Charlie Pickering on The Weekly, about almost dying after she gave birth to her firstborn Oliver, 11.
Bickmore explains how she later saw a psychologist while pregnant with her daughter Evie, four.
The 38 -year-old says she was terrified for her second birth.
"I saw psychologists when I was pregnant with Evie as I had this real fear of giving birth to Evie because I nearly died after I gave birth to Ollie."
This isn't the first time Carrie has opened up about her struggles.
In 2017, the radio host spoke up about how she received counseling to prepare for Evie's birth on her Hit Network radio show.
"Giving birth is a full-on thing, it's beautiful, it's special, but it's also traumatic,' she said. 'It's painful, I would have done anything to have the experience erased from my mind."
"I had a severe haemorrhage 10 days after the birth of my son Oliver," she told Marie Claire in 2016.
"If had I not been able to head straight to a hospital and have an operation and blood transfusions, I would have died."
Bickmore also spoke up about her family's issues with mental health, stating there shouldn't be a stigma towards mental illness.
"Both of those things are a part of our life. We don't take special time to talk about as if it's a strange thing or a thing to be ashamed of or anything, it's who we are," she said.
In her recent post for Stellar, Carrie talked about her struggles after giving birth to her 6-month-old, Adelaide.
She spoke about feeling trapped and fearing that she had postnatal depression.
"It's been one of the most challenging periods of my parenting life. I realise now I had it pretty easy during the newborn phase with my other two kids."
