Den britiske skuespiller Gemma Atkinson var ved at miste livet, da hun skulle føde hende og kærestens første barn. 

I et længere skriv på Instagram, fortæller den 34-årige stjerne om den voldsomme hændelse.

"Det her billede blev taget, da Mia var 30 timer gammel. Det trætte smil på mit ansigt illustrerer ikke rigtig, hvor glad jeg var indeni, for 30 timer tidligere kunne det hele være gået meget anderledes," sådan indleder Gemma sit opslag på Instagram, hvor der et billede med hende og datteren på hospitalet.

"Hollyoaks"-skuespilleren fortæller, at hendes lille pige Mia var en meget lille baby, og derfor var det ikke sikkert, alt ville gå som håbet.

"Mia var en lille baby. Derfor var min jordemor bekymret for, om hun var stærk nok til at åbne min livmoderhals. Vi valgte at lade tvivlen komme hende til gode, men onsdag aften, var hun stadig ikke lykkedes med det, selvom hun lå i den rette placering langt nede," skriver skuespilleren.

This picture was taken when Mia was 30hrs old. The weary smile on my face doesn’t quite portray how happy I was inside as 30hrs earlier, things could have gone very differently. Mia was a tiny baby, 4lb 10. With that in mind the midwife was concerned she wouldn’t be strong enough to open my cervix. My water broke on a tues & we gave her the benefit of the doubt but by the Wednesday evening despite her being in the perfect place & so low down, she still hadn’t managed it. The decision was made to induce me to help her along but she disliked that even more. With every contraction her heart rate dropped. On the 3rd one midwife Katie who was taking care of me at the time pressed the panic alarm & within 15 mins I was rushed out, prepped & delivered Mia via an emergency C section. It wasn’t what I’d planned but thanks to my hypnobirthing despite the madness & panic, I was able to calmly keep my breathing technique & accept whatever is best for Mia just do it! 2hrs later I was alone with Gorks & Mia blissfully happy in a ward when I suddenly felt extremely unwell. Gorka got a doctor and she took 1 look at me & again pressed the panic button. I was having a hemorrhage. A big one & I lost a lot of blood. I don’t remember much other than having around 9 doctors in the room, some injecting me, hooking me to drips, physically pulling clots out of me & one comforting Gorks who was beside himself in the corner. I woke in another room with Gorks & my family there, Mia sleeping soundly & a lovely midwife named Di who was checking my notes. The trauma was over & thanks to our NHS & incredible hospital staff we were ok. I’m fully aware for some people it’s a different outcome & I feel incredibly lucky that me & Mia are healthy & healed. My mum moved in with me while Gorks was away & has been incredible! If I can be half the mum she is to me I’ll be happy! I’m going to remind Mia of this story any time she has doubts about what she can achieve in life. The odds were against her from the start, but she’s been a little fighter from day 1. Feeds perfectly & is gaining weight like I do on an all inclusive holiday! We’re SO proud of her, she’s our little soldier & I’m so Grateful

Selvom det var tæt på at gå helt galt, så endte det heldigvis godt. 

Gemma Atkinson fortæller, at Mia blev taget ved kejsersnit. 

"Ved hver ve faldt hendes hjerteslag. Jordemoderen Katie, som passede på mig på daværende tidspunkt trak i panikalarmen og på 15 minutter blev jeg hastet ud, gjort klar og Mia kom til verden ved et akut kejsersnit. Det var ikke, hvad jeg havde planlagt, men takket være hypnoterapi var jeg i stand til at styre min vejrtrækning," lyder det ærligt fra Gemma.

Atkinson er udover skuespiller også kendt i en række realityprogrammer på britisk tv. 

Den nu 34-årige mor har blandt andet været med i den britiske udgave af "Vild med dans".
