Danielle Armstrong shares video footage from her harrowing 72-hour labour and reveals she was ‘screaming’ for epidural


DANIELLE Armstrong shared a video from an extricating 72-hour labour where she screamed for an epidural.

Footage showed an emotional Danielle on a hospital bed in agony while fiance Tom Edney stroked her head.

The childhood sweethearts put together a touching YouTube video diary of baby Orla’s birth, and Danielle, 32, opened up on all the gory details.

Danielle said: “I had an epidural, I was demanding wasn’t I?”

The former TOWIE star added: “I was screaming, I was screaming for it [the epidural].”

Danielle praised the staff at Chelmsford’s Broomfield Hospital and called midwife team Harriet and Tom as “amazing” during her difficult labour.  

Danielle explained: “It got to a point where I thought, ‘I can’t do this anymore’, but you do find that inner strength.

“Eventually, obviously, it was like I felt her head coming out and the rest of her just wriggled.”

Danielle recalled the moment when she first held her baby daughter in her arms.

She explained: “All I remember is her eyes so open. Like I thought she was going to be like her eyes shut but her eyes were just staring – she looked straight at me.”

The couple enjoyed a pause in setting up their new Essex home last month, just a fortnight after Orla was born.

She regularly posts videos of the baby and today even celebrated her “windy faces”.

Danielle got engaged to Tommy in March – but they were actually childhood sweethearts.

Danielle said she had given up on love before falling head over heels for her friend who she first met 22 years ago.
