Millie Radford says giving birth ‘wasn’t that bad’ and she ‘loved every second’ as she reveals Ophelia sleeps till 9am

NEW mum Millie Radford claims that giving birth to her first daughter Ophelia “wasn’t that bad” and she did so without an epidural.

The 18-year-old, who is part of Britain’s biggest family, delivered her first born just over a week ago and said she “loved every second of it.”

The teen mum took to her Instagram stories where she answered fans’ questions about the birth.

Asked how she found labour, she responded: “Loved every second of it, couldn’t believe how fast it went.”

A second follower then asked how painful she had found the delivery.

“Honestly it’s not that bad, I think I just got lucky because she wasn’t back to back, when I got to the hospital I was already 6cm (dilated)” Millie responded.

Her seemingly pain-free birth left many questioning whether she had opted for an epidural but Millie revealed she had done it all on gas and air.

Describing her birth as laid back, Millie said the only negative was having to go into theater towards the end of her delivery.

The daughter of Sue Radford, who was her birthing partner, went on to reveal that the labour had lasted just five hours and she had delivered her daughter in a birthing pool.

Millie had no intention of using the pool but one had come available when she arrived at hospital and she said she would “100 per cent” recommend it.

And parenthood appears to have continued to be a dream come true for Millie who revealed she has been getting plenty of sleep as has Ophelia.

Asked if Ophelia, who shares her mum’s middle name, had been up in the night Millie said: “NO!! I have to wake her up for night feeds and she doesn’t wake up till 9am.”

Millie, 19, welcomed her daughter on September 10 at 7.05pm, weighing 7lbs and 12oz.

The tot’s full name is Ophelia Jo Radford, and the teen announced her arrival with an adorable snap on her Instagram page.

She wrote: “Ophelia Jo Radford. Born 10/09/2020 at 7:05PM. 7lb 12oz.”
