Sara Damergi of A Place In The Sun tells about giving birth in solitary confinement, saying, “I was terribly afraid.”
SARA DAMERGI has spoken out about having her second child in lockdown, revealing that it was a “terrifying” experience.
Sara Damergi, 41, of A Place In The Sun, has spoken out about having her second child in lockdown during the initial wave of the coronavirus pandemic last year. The property guru spoke exclusively to This website about how she was “very afraid” while giving birth to her second son Elliot, which caused her “a lot of worry,” as well as her upcoming return to the Channel 4 property show.
There was so much that was unknown.
When asked about the experience, the TV host stated that it was an anxiety-inducing one.
“I had a kid at the top of the first wave, so that was when we didn’t know anything about anything,” she explained.
“I was terrified, and I believe that triggered a lot of worry in me; I was far more apprehensive than when I had my first [baby].”
The actress went on to describe her experience giving birth in a hospital during the pandemic, admitting that the virus made her nervous.
“Just being in the hospital with everyone wearing masks and not knowing if I could catch it, if the baby could catch it, so much was unknown,” Sara continued.
Despite the frightening scenario, the mother-of-two expressed her delight in spending time with her newborn during lockdown.
“However, for a long time, I didn’t mind the lockdown because I was in a baby bubble, and the mother instinct set in, and you just want to be at home with your baby,” she stated.
The actress went on to say that, despite having a child, she began to miss the freedom of traveling across the world.
“I didn’t feel it at first, but then the problem for me was travel; I live for travel, I adore it, and I struggled with not being able to get on a plane,” she explained.
Sara went on to say that her family is scattered all over the world, something she found difficult to accept during the pandemic.
“Because my spouse is Swedish, his entire family lives in Sweden and Australia, whereas half of my family lives in Lebanon,” she explains. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
