Sharing a new photo of herself cradling baby Nancy, Nina pointed to her "postnatal baldy bits" in the adorable snap. According to Patient UK, a number of women typically experience hair loss, which is caused by changing hormone levels, around three or four months after welcoming a baby. 

Nina, who already shares sons Digby and Michael with her husband Ted, has spoken honestly about her third pregnancy on social media. Back in July, the 42-year-old gave fans an update on her life at home with newborn Nancy.

"We've lost all sense of time as we've been feeding and snoozing and gazing and toe-stroking and head-smelling and marvelling at the absolute wonder of it all," she began. 

"It's been *haaaard* tho! A harder pregnancy. A tougher delivery and a longer recovery… maybe it's being older… but also I'd somehow forgotten."

Nina continued: "I'd forgotten the anxiety of labour moving from the plan. I'd forgotten the swollen scars, bleeding breasts, mastitis fever, hormonal crashes, clots, constipation, codeine withdrawal, exhaustion…. And this time the added funk of a nosebleed (y tho?!).

"But part of getting older is getting better acquainted with your limits and letting go. I'm better at stopping and saying no to visitors and yes to a messy house and yes to asking for help. (A turning point was full snot crying down the phone to the GP - resulting in a glorious prescription of kind words, antibiotics, painkillers and a follow up call about how I was coping)."

Concluding her post, she wrote: We are on the right track - for now - and enjoying life in the slow lane… usually with Australian MAFs & Italian red drinks… what a combo. Women and their bodies (parents or not) are complex and resilient that it fills me with immense pride. I can't wait to tell you all about it my sweet girl."
