‘It was quite a traumatic time’: Jules Robinson reveals that being pregnant in lockdown with husband Cam Merchant felt like they were back on Married At First Sight
She spent most of her first pregnancy with her husband Cam Merchant during the coronavirus pandemic.
But Jules Robinson explained that isolation felt like they were back on Married At First Sight.
“We actually just felt like we were back in the experiment,” the 38-year-old said Healthy-ish podcast on Friday.

She added, “We were back in MAFS. I mean, if we did it once, we could do it again because you’re on the show with someone 24/7 for three months, so we were like “we got this”. ‘
Jules went on to reveal that she was in isolation earlier than the rest of the country due to health anxiety during her first pregnancy.
But she felt that she had ‘too much knowledge’ by having the news on 24/7 for the past few weeks.
“We were back in MAFS. I mean, if we did it once, we could do it again because you’re with someone 24/7 for three months on the show, so we were like “we got this,” the 38-year-old told reality the Healthy-esque podcast on Friday
A news story that Jules especially feared was that people in New York couldn’t be with partners during childbirth.
“It was quite a traumatic time, when we just learned not to have too much information. Turn on the news once a day and that’s enough to know what’s going on, ”said Jules.
It comes after Jules told it The Daily Telegraph Last month, that pregnancy was the “most painful pleasure” she has ever experienced.
“You are so eternally grateful that you make a living, but then again it is a whirlwind of so many emotions, illness, fatigue and first experiences,” Jules told the publication.

She added, “Not to mention the raging hormones that cast doubt on your sanity. But I can already say that I would do it all again. ‘
Jules went on to say that she and Cameron, 36, were in the ‘full swing of hypnobirthing classes’.
Hypnobirthing is a philosophy and technique that promotes natural childbirth and teaches ways to ‘be born calm’ without fear of pain, according to Hypnobirthing Australia.
