"Naturally I went into panic mode as I felt so unprepared and nervous, plus Sienna was poorly at home with Hand Foot & Mouth and I knew she needed her Mama!" Millie continued.

"It was seriously bad timing, I was monitored overnight and pumped full of fluids as I got really dehydrated, but thankfully it was a false alarm so I was discharged to go home again."

The doting mum said the "scare" made her appreciate the last two weeks of her pregnancy, and she spent a lot of quality time with Sienna and Hugo.

Wrapping up her birth story, Millie added: "As a serial planner it freaked me out thinking the baby was coming early but luckily my second C-section was everything that I hoped it would be and just magical.

"I asked to drop the curtain and watch Aurelia be born, which was an incredible moment that I will treasure forever! I can't thank the amazing staff at @thekensingtonwing enough for their care and support, during both of my stays."

Millie shared snaps of herself cradling baby Aurelia while in hospital, with husband Hugo making a feature in some of the images.

Taking to the comments section, fans praised Millie for her honest birth story and for sharing the personal experience.
