Sad Loss

“I had a miscarriage at three months, which makes you so worried once you are pregnant again,” the 42-year-old tells the Daily Mail, without revealing when the miscarriage took place.

Jools and Jamie are parents to Poppy, 14, Daisy Boo, 12, Petal, six, Buddy, five, and six-month-old River Rocket, and the British brunette says she’s not ruled out baby number six just yet!

“I’m getting older, but I’d definitely do it again if I could. I think Jamie’s finished, but you just never know,” she reveals.

“River’s six months now, so we’re past the really difficult sleepless first few months. He’s such a joy.”

Rainbow Baby Range

This may explain why Jools felt so passionately about releasing a Rainbow Baby body suit as part of her Little Bird Clothing range at Mothercare.

The term ‘Rainbow Baby’ is used to describe a baby born after the loss of another child – often called an ‘Angel baby’.

“It’s such a responsibility to represent a charity that does such important work,” Jools tells Vogue.

“I had a close friend whose baby was still born, and I can’t even imagine how you begin to cope with something like that.

“I had a miscarriage at three months, which makes you so worried once you are pregnant again – it makes it impossible to enjoy the early stages of the pregnancy.”

Becoming A Mum

In 2009, Jools admitted she went through intensive hormone treatment before conceiving her first child, after being diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome.

“I didn’t care how far I had to go,” she said in an interview with Baby Centre

“You hear horror stories and you think it’s going to be hard, but I didn’t care. I just wanted a baby… It was awful, but I just thought: ‘Keep going’.

“I’m sure any couple that has been through fertility treatment understands what I’m saying.”
