Geordie OG star Marnie Simpson has revealed her traumatic labour with son Rox has “put her off” going through the birthing process again.
The 28 year old reality star admitted she has “genuinely spoken about surrogacy” after her 28 hour-long birth with four month old Rox, where she lost two pints of blood.
Speaking in an exclusive chat with OK! online ahead of the launch of the new series of Geordie OGs on MTV, Marnie admitted her experience with labour has “put her off’ giving birth again.

She said: “I’ve genuinely spoken about surrogacy, that’s how much it put me off.”
To which Marnie’s boyfriend and dad to Rox Casey Johnson added: “It was the birth, it wasn’t the pregnancy.”
The mum then clarified: “The pregnancy was fine. Everything started to just go down hill towards the end.
“But, the birth was so… I’ve honestly not been the same person since it. I really haven’t. I’ve suffered with major anxiety.”
Casey added: “But, you are gradually getting better.”
And Marnie continued: “I am gradually getting better but, I’m just not the same – it’s strange. I think it was genuinely traumatic – that’s the only way I can describe it. I’ve been traumatised because of it.”
Marine had contracted a bacterial infection during her labour, which caused her chronic UTI and saw her bed bound for weeks after welcoming Rox into the world.
The couple, who star in the new series of Geordie OGs on MTV, added that the difficult labour made the first three weeks, in which Marnie wasn't able to get out of bed, hard for them to adjust.
Former Union J member Casey, 24, said: “The first three weeks were a b**l ache, like, I was thinking: ‘Oh s**t I’m not ready for this.’ And then after around three weeks, we just clicked and knew what we were doing. We got a routine going.”
While Marnie, who recently revealed her UTI caused her to loose three stone in weight, added: “I think what it was, like we had such a bad birth that it just set everything back. Like, we had such a good plan but that just made everything go to s**t didn’t it?
“He [Casey] didn’t sleep for four days because I was kept in hospital for an extra two or three nights, so he didn’t sleep at all.”

She added: “I felt so bad. I was in labour for 28 hours so no one slept – Casey didn’t, I didn’t. And then I was in hospital for another two nights, so all that time not sleeping and you’ve got a baby to look after. You didn’t sleep when he was born so we were just f**ked. We were just in a whole different zone so that was hard.
“But, then after about three weeks we started to get back that routine. We got some sleep and I was recovering.”
During her pregnancy, Marnie admitted she was “absolutely terrified” of labour. And, looking back on her anxiety over giving birth, she said: “I was scared, but by God I didn’t know what was coming. If I knew then what I know now, Jesus. If I thought it was gonna be bad and painful – it topped it by like ten times.

“I just think it’s different. Different women have different bodies and different pain thresholds. I don’t know what it is – different pelvis, different cervix, different bodies completely. I think I must just have a small cervix. He would just not come out.
“I remember my belly changed shape.”
Casey added: “He actually went in her belly. So her belly was like a bump and he actually went vertical. He stood up.”
And Marnie explained: “My belly was a big thing and then it went in and he was trying to get out. It was like something from Alien!”
