Carrie Bickmore Reveals She ‘Spies’ On Other Mums And Wonders If They Feel The Same As She Does!

Just because Carrie Bickmore is a famous Logie Winner and successful TV presenter, it doesn’t mean she doesn’t suffer with the same anxiety that the rest of us mums do.

‘I Get This Overwhelming Feeling’

The Project star who is mum to Oliver, 10, and Evie, two, reveals she struggles with the guilt of balancing her time between her children and her career.

“If you ask me today, I would say that right now, all morning, I have had a pain in the pit of my stomach and I just want to be at home playing with Evie, and I’ve just got this overwhelming feeling that I want to be at home and be with her,” Carrie told her The Project co-host Waleed Aly in an interview for Stellar magazine.

In fact, Carrie, 36, says that she often looks at other mums and wonders whether they have the same ‘pain’ that she does.

I love how kids find so much joy in the simple things… #water #sand #fun #holidays

“This is going to sound really creepy, but I’ll often be driving to work and I’ll look at a mum next to me in her car with an empty baby seat or an empty car seat in the back and I’ll look at her and I’ll be like, ‘I wonder if she’s got the same pain in the pit of her stomach that I have right now?'” she reveals.

“I think about all the things that are running through her head. And the only thing that gives me solace is that I know I’m not alone in feeling that.”

Meanwhile, Carrie recently opened up about her ‘traumatic’ experiences giving birth. In fact, the TV presenter says it was so bad for her that she had to seek professional help afterwards.

Today might be the day I gobble her up ?

‘I Would Have Done Anything To Erase From My Mind’

“Giving birth is a full on thing, it’s beautiful, it’s special, but it’s also traumatic,” she admitted on her HIT Network radio show.

“It’s painful, I would have done anything to have the experience erased from my mind.”

The Project host says while it wasn’t a pleasant experience bringing her son Ollie, nine, into the world, she had to seek counselling before she was due to go into labour for a second time with her daughter Evie.

“I found it so traumatic come the birth of my second child I actually had counselling to get myself okay to be able to give birth to Evie because I was so scared after the first experience,” she added.

‘I Never Forgot’

“They say you forget and that’s why you go back again. I never forgot,” Carrie added.

“The funniest part, it’s hard to get your head around what actually happens. A big thing comes out of a very small place.”

Carrie and her partner Chris Walker welcomed Evie into the world in March 2015.

Tragically, Ollie’s dad – Greg Lane – passed away after battling brain cancer for ten years in 2010.
