“You jump on every sound they make when you first get older. Everything can create a degree of anxiety, “said Today Extra host.

Sylvia chose not to reveal the condition.

She explained that the termination caused by the coronavirus pandemic has created an “extra layer of fear” for her as a new mother.

Balanced between a busy career at Nine and the demands of motherhood, Sylvia praised Libby Trickett’s book on postnatal depression as a valuable resource.

“I found it [book] a very useful resource as an expectant mother, ”said Sylvia.

“As soon as things stopped and the GPs only took people in an emergency, I started to worry about how I would take care of Oscar if something happened,” said Sylvia.

“It is every emotion at its most extreme and all mixed together. It is an extreme and deep joy, it is rational fear. ‘

“But mostly just joy and wonder, and impressed by this lovely little boy,” she added.

Sylvia also revealed that she and Peter go to bed at night and only watch videos of their little boy.
