She said: "After an incredible birth I was rushed to theatre after my placenta got stuck for over an hour. They struggled to get it out in theatre resulting in three litres of blood loss. My veins collapsed and I turned blue.

"I felt myself going, my whole life flashed before my eyes in seconds and my eyes shut.

"I later woke up in recovery. I really thought I was gone and I nearly died bringing my beautiful boy into this world. I'm truly lucky to be here."
