Louise Thompson admitted she thought ‘she was going to die again’ after her emergency readmission to hospital’, one year after the traumatic birth of her son.
The former Made In Chelsea star, 32, admitted on Saturday that she was ‘doing really well’ before she suffered a haemorrhage and lost around three litres of blood.
She spent a month in intensive care after welcoming son Leo-Hunter Libbey, 14 months, with boyfriend Ryan and suffers with PTSD and post-natal anxiety after the near-death birthing experience.
Louise had previously been in hospital after undergoing a ‘small operation’ amid her gruelling battle with Asherman’s Syndrome.
The condition causes scar tissue to form and build up inside your uterus, it is unknown if her recent admission was from complications from the surgery.
Tough: Louise Thompson, 32, said her latest emergency readmission to hospital left her thinking she was ‘going to die again’, one year after the traumatic birth of her son
In her first post on Instagram since her hospital stay, she detailed: ‘I’m not going to let this hold me back. I’ve learnt a lot from the last year and I feel in a much sounder headspace than last year so fingers crossed.
‘I’m a bit scared to leave the house (or sometimes even stand up) so slowly slowly and I will have lots of time bored at home so pop me a message.???
‘I have to say, I am one damn strong cookie. And I have to hold on to the fact that our bodies are remarkable and can heal from such extraordinarily brutal things. I can and I will heal from this.
“From feeling all my limbs go cold as my blood tries to protect my vital organs, to shutting off my entire pain response as I had 4x canulas jabbed into my arms at the same time in Rhesus, wow, what a trip.?????
‘Thanks doctors + medicine and those dedicated to those improving medicine and science’y stuff for keeping me alive ????
A haemorrhage is medically defined as a loss of blood from damaged blood vessels, and they can be both internal and external.
It can occur in nearly any part of the body, and if it is unable to be controlled, or caused by a serious injury, it may require surgery.
It comes after Louise’s fiancé Ryan Libbey revealed that she was rushed to hospital after suffering a haemorrhage.

Family: Louise spent a month in intensive care after welcoming son Leo-Hunter Libbey, 14 months, with boyfriend Ryan in 2021, and suffers with PTSD and post-natal anxiety
The reality TV personality was diagnosed with PTSD after suffering complications while giving birth to her son Leo-Hunter in 2021.
She later told her followers that Leo-Hunter had been treated in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and she had been treated in the adult ICU after the birth.
On Christmas Day she shared a heartfelt post paying tribute to the NHS staff who ‘worked through the night to save my life’.
