This Morning doctor Zoe Williams has revealed she feels ‘apprehensive’ ahead of the arrival of her new baby.

She said: ‘I’m feeling a bit apprehensive, but also there’s a small side of me that’s looking forward to the birth and I can’t wait to meet the baby.

‘I can’t believe I am saying that! I’ve witnessed my body go through this incredible thing and have got this newfound trust and faith in what it’s capable of.’

The broadcaster added that she ‘came into this pregnancy with a doctor’s mindset’.

She said: ‘Having worked in obstetrics and gynaecology, I’ve been exposed to many more complicated births than straightforward ones.’

‘But we’ve got a doula who’s attended many births and she is helping me readdress what my ideas are around everything.

‘Thinking about a home birth is a massive shift for me, although I’m still weighing up all my options.’

In a recent interview, Zoe hailed pregnancy ‘magical’ and admitted she was considering trying to conceive via a sperm donor before she met her partner.

The physician, who previously revealed she froze her eggs in 2018, explained: ‘Having my scan was just the most amazing thing. It’s so magical, the wonder of seeing this little life that’s growing inside you.’

On reaching her goals, the GP told Hello! magazine: ‘I had two big ambitions, one was to be a doctor and the other was to be a mother.

‘As a doctor none of this is new to me, but when you’re the patient the experience is the same as for anyone else.’

Zoe went on to reflect on the early stages of her relationship with senior recruitment consultant Stuart, who she met at a bar in Portugal in September 2019.

The Amazon star recalled: ‘As Stuart and I got to know each other it almost felt disingenuous and wrong not to talk about this thing that, in the months leading up to that, had been a really big part of my life.

‘If I could go back two years and speak to myself and say that by January 2021 you will have met the love of your life, be pregnant and you’ll have spent most of the year in lockdown I would have said you are having a laugh.’

Zoe added that she made her motherhood plans clear to her partner of over a year on their ‘third or fourth date’.

The healthcare professional previously confessed she wishes she would have frozen her eggs sooner.

She told the Daily Mail in August 2018: ‘I chose at 35 to buy a flat but I could have chosen egg-freezing instead. In hindsight that would have been the best thing. So if it had been available on the NHS, I would certainly have done it younger.
