Amy Childs is determined to breastfeed her baby daughter when she's born later this month but needs help with techniques
Amy Childs has hired someone to help her breastfeed her baby.
The former 'The Only Way is Essex' star is due to give birth to her daughter - her first child - later this month and is so determined to give her little girl the best start in life that she's enlisted the help of a medical professional to teach how how to feed her.
Writing in her column for new! magazine, she said: "I'm 37 weeks now and feel like I could go into labour any minute! I'm really struggling. I feel tired all day, I can't stop yawning and my back... OMG! I had a midwife appointment last week and we went through my birth plan ... I'm really hoping I can have a water birth and use some of my my hypnobirthing breathing techniques.
"I just need to remember they're not contractions, they're surges. I've also decided to hire someone to help me breastfeed in the first few days. I'm worried I won't know if I'm doing it right and I don't want to get stressed, because apparently the baby picks up on that. So I'll feel better if someone could come and help me."
The 26-year-old beauty may be about to pop but she's certainly not slowing down as she's just opened up her new boutique and salon Beauty and Boutique.
She said: "I've had a busy week opening my new boutique and salon - Beauty and Boutique! There was planning permission to change the office above the salon into apartments so we've moved to the boutique to avoid building work. With all that's happened with my employee stealing money, it means we can keep a close eye on things, so it's better it's all in one place. It looks great! I'm not gonna lie, it's made me extra tired - my dad said I looked knackered! - but it's my business so I wanted to get stuck in and make sure it's up and running before I give birth."
