TV presenter Rochelle Humes has shared the negative responses she's received after giving birth by C-section.
The Saturdays singer, who recently showed off her incredible walk-in wardrobe, revealed on the latest episode of her podcast how people have criticised her for not giving birth the traditional way.
She told Kate Ferdinand on The My Little Coco Podcast: “I thought I was going to have a natural birth, I thought that was what I was supposed to do.
“It didn't happen that way, but I was OK with that. What I wasn't ready for was the negative connotations that come with having a C-section.”
The regular host of This Morning also revealed the effect some of the comments had on her. She explained: “I've been in situations before where people have said, 'Oh, are you too posh to push?'
She added: “I remember feeling really, really offended. Almost like I'd failed, like I couldn't do it properly.”
Rochelle is married to fellow TV presenter Marvin Humes, 36, and has two daughters Alaia, eight, and Valentina, four, as well as son Blake, one, with the JLS singer.
She had all three births by caesarian and rallied on her podcast against those who criticise people's personal choice in how they give birth.
She said: “I'm noticing online more people talking about the way they delivered and some saying, 'I had a natural birth", and someone else saying, "Well, you had a vaginal birth – what I did was still natural'.”

Rochelle defended her decision, adding: “I brought my baby into the world, it just didn't go the way I thought."
Kate also shared her own experiences as she recalled her husband and former footballer Rio, 43, needing more reassurance than she did as she was giving birth .
On the podcast, Kate said: "He had the camera out. he was taking photos , even when I was pushing there's photos of him with water spray, but of himself.
The former TOWIE star, who recently said she initially feared she wouldn't love her baby, told Rochelle: "I was like this guy is mental. Even when he had a a gown on he said he knew he was relaxed because he spoke to the doctor and they said to him "you're in the right place, its going to be fine"."
