On this morning’s show we were joined by Coronation Street actress Kym Marsh who opened up to Lorraine about why she made the decision to not have any more children following the birth of daughter Polly.
It’s been nine years since Kym tragically lost her son Archie, who passed away after being born 18 weeks premature. Kym went on to have daughter Polly (now 6) who was also born early, but who is thankfully happy and healthy.
“To be honest, I took the decision to not have any more children,” Kym explained, “I can’t have anymore children now. I made that decision after I had Polly.
“I don’t know if anybody knows this but I almost lost Polly as well, several times throughout the pregnancy, and it was very traumatic. I was on bed rest for months and she was still born very early, she was born seven weeks premature.
“Thankfully, she’s okay and really healthy. But it was traumatic, so I took the decision that I wasn’t going to do that, because I was lucky enough to have the three children that I’ve got, and I didn’t want to run that risk because it’s too painful.”
