Debbie Dingle star Charley Webb , 31, revealed her breastfeeding saviour as she took to Instagram to praise the “amazing” Elvie pump, which she recommended to fellow mums.
The mother-of-three wrote on her social media: “This is genuinely amazing. For anyone that wants to try and breastfeed/already is. Making my pumping so much easier.”
The electric breast pump Charley recommended is silent and allows mums to pump “in peace”, with the product receiving rave reviews for being “portable, convenient and easy to clean”.
Charley and her husband Matthew, 39, announced the arrival of their third child on July 29, taking to Instagram to confirm “Baby Wolf” was born, joining the soap star pair’s two sons Buster, nine, and Bowie, three.
Charley took to Instagram to share the first photo of her newborn, who is seen wearing an adorable onesie emblazoned with the words “Baby Wolf” in the gorgeous black and white image. The soap star captioned the photo: “BaByWoLf #3 has joined the crazy gang. We’re in a bubble of newborn’ness heaven.”
During her third pregnancy, Charley opened up on suffering from morning sickness and SPD (symphysis pubis dysfunction), a debilitating pelvic condition. Charley revealed she was in “agony” after receiving the diagnosis, which causes stiff pelvic joints.
Admitting she thinks pregnancy is “amazing”, the actress confessed that she didn’t enjoy getting bigger because of the pain.
She exclusively told OK! magazine: “I’d be lying if I said I really enjoy the experience of getting bigger. But I appreciate what my body is doing. I think pregnancy is amazing.”
Charley added: “I still get waves of sickness but I’ve also been diagnosed with SPD [symphysis pubis dysfunction]. It’s when your muscles have relaxed too much ready for the birth. It’s agony.”
Charley also explained that she wanted to give birth in a hospital to ease her anxiety, but husband Matthew wanted a home birth, saying: “Matthew’s up for a home birth but I’d like to be in a hospital for the sake of my own anxiety, in case anything went wrong.”
Matthew later addressed Charley’s sickness as he appeared on Loose Women, admitting that her pregnancy hadn’t been plain sailing, telling the show: “It’s funny as well because Charley isn’t a big fan of being pregnant but a big fan of giving birth.”
“She’s a bit odd like that. She’s not enjoyed it. This one [pregnancy] has been particularly brutal. She’s been ill from the get go and it’s just not relented at all. But she actually enjoys giving birth. She would say that but it’s a bit odd.”
