Countess Sophie of Wessex, has spoken for the first time about her traumatic birth with daughter Princess Louise. Sophie spoke about her experience at the neo-natal unit in London’s Great Ormond Street hospital, talking to new mothers – some who had also experienced frightening deliveries.

Louise was delivered prematurely in 2003 and Sophie, who almost died in the process, explained that her daughter’s birth was a blur, "It was just a blur. I simply didn’t see her for a few days … It’s quite frightening when you can’t see them for the wires."

Countess Sophie is married to Britain’s Prince Edward and this week the royal aides released a statement dismissing claims that the couple is expecting another baby, "It is purely speculative and we are not putting out a statement. It’s a private matter between the couple."

Thanks to CBB Reader Eliza for the correction on Sophie’s title- she is a Countess not a Princess.
