Danielle Armstrong admits she’s ‘a bit anxious’ about giving birth in hospital amid coronavirus

Danielle Armstrong has revealed she's feeling "a little bit anxious" about going to the hospital to give birth to her baby girl.

With the coronavirus pandemic continuing to sweep the globe, hospitals are being overrun by patients coming in to be treated for the deadly bug.

Fully aware of this, former TOWIE star Danielle, who is expecting her first child with fiancé Tom Edney, has now confessed she's a little worried about it, but overall has faith that everything will be alright.

Hosting a Q&A session with her 1.3million followers, one person asked her: "Are u scared of going to hospital? x" [sic]

The blonde bombshell, 32, who recently revealed she'll have be induced if her daughter doesn't arrive soon, said: "I thought this was a good one because I know a lot of mums – or mums-to-be shall I say – are probably feeling a bit anxious right now of going to the hospital and giving birth.

"For me, already if it means that I'm going to be induced it's slightly disappointing because I so thought that I was going to be able to do all this in a natural way.

"You can't really just have this birthing plan in your head because things can change. So with regards to the hospital, I think it is what it is."

Danielle, who previously said she's "tried everything" to bring on her labour, continued by explaining how the procedure will work when she's giving birth.

She said: "Like yeah, ideally it's not the best situation because Tom can't be with me until four centimetres and until you're in active labour.

"But the hospitals are amazing and the midwives are amazing.

"I just think everyone I've seen so far, all the staff have been so supportive and have reassured me and you just gotta have faith and just go with it. Because at the end of the day, what else can you do?"

The soon-to-be-mum also revealed that she and Tom considered having a home birth, but ultimately decided it would be best to let doctors handle it in the hospital.

"I don't really want to have a home birth. We did think about it, but we said no, didn't we… Because it's our first I think I'd rather be in hospital," she explained.

Going back to the original question, she added: "So am I scared… I'm a little bit anxious just because it's the unknown.

"But with all the breathing that I'm doing and trying to stick to a positive mindset and know that in the outcome, we're going to see our beautiful little baby girl. We just need to get through it."
