Lily Allen doesn’t think she’ll “ever really recover” from the “trauma” of giving birth to her stillborn son George in 2010.
The 33-year-old singer was left traumatised when she went into early labour whilst carrying her first child, who was stillborn after his umbilical cord became wrapped around his neck.
Lily claims she spent “12 hours” with her son “deceased in between [her] legs”, and says she doesn’t think she’ll ever be able to put the harrowing labour behind her.
She said: “The hardest thing about that was losing a child, but there were complications with the actual delivery. He was so small he actually got stuck halfway in and halfway out, so to speak, during the delivery, and because his skin wasn’t fully formed they couldn’t [use] forceps [to] pull him out.
“So there was a period of about 12 hours of lying there with him deceased in between my legs, which was incredibly [traumatic]. I went into trauma and I don’t think I’ll ever really recover from that.”
