Message as Felicity Shiru heads into the delivery room

"Part of me is terrified about what is to come. I worry about the baby not liking me, or about stuffing up and not being able to help with the feeds properly. That they might make you upset or somehow change the incredible dynamic that we have always had.
"But every time I have these freakouts I just look at you and remember how you’ve handled everything that’s come your way and I know that not only will we be fine, but that we’ll be great. Because no matter what happens, this baby will be half of you and half of me. Mostly, I want to take this moment to say one thing above anything else, thank you, love," he added.
Pushing vs C-Section
Shiru had earlier on shared responded to a fan who asked "C-section or the labour way? Would like to know your preference Fel."
Although the question may be considered as personal, Shiru answered in a single word, "Kupush (pushing)".
