Louise Thompson ‘ready to handle’ birth trauma as she celebrates huge achievement

Louise Thompson has said she is “ready to handle” her birth trauma after she almost died twice giving birth to her son Leo-Hunter.

The former Made In Chelsea star’s comments came as she also celebrated a huge professional achievement and shared the news on Instagram.

Posting pictures herself and her fiancé Ryan Libbey with their baby boy, Louise shared the exciting news that her brand Pocket Sport is in the display windows at a department store in London.

In the lengthy post, the 31 year old also confessed that her “new life is crazy” but she is doing her “best” to handle it.

She also revealed that the snaps had actually been taken a month ago, but “the task of posting about anything serious or work orientated has felt absolutely insurmountable until now”.

Back in December the mum-of-one opened up about Leo-Hunter’s arrival and revealed she had had some serious complications during her pregnancy and his birth.

While Leo-Hunter was rushed to neonatal intensive care, Louise was placed in ICU. The little one thankfully made a quick recovery, but the star stayed in hospital for a month after experiencing “various serious complications” and being “very unwell”.

She wrote on Instagram: “In all honesty I never imagined that so many bad things could happen to me, but to dance with death twice brings a whole new view of the world – a stark reminder of how short and sacred life really is.”

But now Louise has been able to celebrate some good news with her gymwear and leggings brand.

She shared: “Still taking some much needed time out to recover over here, BUT I really wanted to post about this because it’s a pretty proud moment for me.

“I wish I was feeling more like my old self because I’d be pulling out all the bells and whistles to celebrate but I can’t change the past and I can only do my best in my current state so this will have to do for now, in the present, my new present…”

“When my business partner messaged me to say that our brand @pocketsport was now stocked in Peter Jones I didn’t realise that we were going to be gracing THREE of the front windows in the MAJOR department store over on my old stomping ground. Wowzers trousers (or leggings).”

She continued: “Despite the fact that I’ve been struggling to function like a normal human, I had to drag myself to Sloane Square to see it in the flesh.

“I also managed to squeeze my tush into a pair of our new navy leggings…(Just to confuse you guys I actually took these photos on the 23rd of January but the task of posting about anything serious or work orientated has felt absolutely insurmountable until now.

“Where has that time gone, the past month has flashed before my eyes, and what has happened to the old Louise who used to be able to achieve a million things in one day).”

Sam Thompson’s sister also confessed that it took “several attempts” for her to feel “confident enough” to take the pictures.

She added: “Gosh life is crazy. My new life is crazy. I’ll also fess up and admit that it took several attempts doing drive by’s in the car until I felt confident enough to get these pictures.”

Louise went on to explain how she will open up more about her trauma as she “finally” feels “ready to handle the truth”.
