Irish model Rosanna Davison has said fertility treatments are “inevitable and constant anxiety”.
Former Miss World and husband Wes Kirk have three children together, Sophia and 2-year-old twins Hugo and Oscar.
Rosanna struggled to conceive for years and had multiple miscarriages.
She had a daughter, Sofia, via surrogacy in 2019, and gave birth to twin sons the following year, 2020.
The Dublin native posted on Instagram about the anxiety she experienced when she struggled with her pregnancy.
The 38-year-old shared an old photo she took with her newborn Sophia.
Rosanna was wearing the all-black outfit in the photo and was holding her daughter to her chest.
She started the post by talking about being the mother of three very young children.
“Memories of this day in 2020…we all dressed up for our first dinner date with 9-week-old Sophia (in my experience, newborns make very friendly dinner companions. Breastfeed at first. , they sleep the rest. Toddlers? not so much).
“Like most novice parents, I was exhausted and overwhelmed from lack of sleep, becoming a new mother and learning at work.
“(I’m still overwhelmed!) But we finally had our long-awaited baby and I could hardly believe our luck.
“New moms and dads get well-intentioned comments and questions about how much sleep they’re getting all the time, but I tell myself and others that it takes just one decent night’s sleep to feel okay again. I kept reminding myself that it wasn’t. I was able to handle it.
Rosanna then went on to talk about the anxieties she has faced over the years.
She continued, “I spoke with Caroline Foran a few days ago about anxiety, from infertility anxiety to the many worries of motherhood.
“Babies are exhausting and all-consuming (especially multiples!), but time flies by (dazed!). , was found to consume all.
“It was an inevitable, constant anxiety.
“Fear of the unknown. Despite the impact it has on so many, infertility remains a silent struggle for so many and a very personal and sensitive topic.
“It’s a complex kind of trauma, one I’m still trying to process, even though I have a baby.”
She closed the post by stating: , stay in the present, take it daily, acknowledge your very valid feelings, and find healthy outlets for them.
“Sending lots of love.”
Rosanna’s fans and friends flooded the comments section praising her openness.
Michelle said: “Such kind and caring words of wisdom.”
Gerry also commented, “Very sound advice.”
