Charlotte Church has admitted being “overconfident” about going into labour for the third time. The singer, 35, made the decision to build herself a “birth palace” in her back garden.
But the performer recalled giving birth on her bathroom floor instead of outside last year.
Charlotte, who previously welcomed two children, said she was “b***h slapped in the face”, as she struggled with labour pains.
The songwriter shared an insight into her family life and parenting after recently welcoming Freda with her husband Jonathan Powell.
The mum-of-three said that parenting is “unbelievably difficult” but added it has helped her become “calmer”.
Addressing her labour pains, Charlotte shared that she previously had two home births so was not a stranger to the process.
Speaking on Rob Beckett and Josh Widdecombe’s Parenting Hell podcast, she said: “I did love birth, but my third birth came and b***h slapped me in the face.
“I was so unbelievably overconfident, because the first two times, I was 21 and 22, and my body knew just what to do.
“I had two home births, they were quite simple. Don’t get me wrong it is still incredibly intense and all the rest of it.”
The singer described her “birth palace” and said there were “candles everywhere”.
“So I set this birth palace outside basically among the trees and I dried flowers,” Charlotte continued.
“So I laboured under there overnight which was beautiful but then I had her screaming on the bathroom floor.”
She added: “It started drizzling at about 7am, and I live next to a golf course. And I started to really hear the golfers.

“My noise – I am a noisy woman anyway but if I’m in any sort of pain – I thought, ‘This is not going to work.’ There I was birthing in the trees.”
Charlotte went on to discuss her life as a mother to three children and added it has been “lush”.
“We’ve had all the sleepless nights and all of it. I am completely elated by this new addition to the family,” she commented.
“She’s changed our whole family dynamic.”
Charlotte added: “It was getting to the point before when the little ones start the process of adolescence so they start to grow away from you a bit but actually she has really connected us all and made everyone a bit softer and a bit gentler.
“It has been totally lush. I love the whole thing – parenting is unbelievably difficult and you do so much soul searching but in my mind, it is the absolute pinnacle of my existence and I love it.”
In August Charlotte, who is also mother to Ruby, 14, and Dexter, 12, with her ex Gavin Henson, first revealed the name of her youngest.
Speaking on This Morning she said: “She’s delicious, little miss Freda Simone. She’s almost 11 months now and she still is causing me some serious sleepless nights still.”
