In the shot she wore a black vest and had her hair up in a pony while looking down at her tot who wore an adorable baby grow.
She penned in the caption: ‘The thing I was most apprehensive about my whole pregnancy?
‘It wasn’t the childbirth, which I was quietly certain would go to plan. It wasn’t the fact we were moving house at 37 weeks.
‘It was breastfeeding, which I was absolutely certain would fall apart for me in a matter of days, if not hours, like it did for so many friends and family members of mine.

‘What I learned throughout my pregnancy, and what I’ve learned since in the postnatal period, is not to take your body personally (even though your visceral reaction will likely tell you to). Don’t do it.
‘Don’t think that because you expect your body to do something, it will, and don’t think you should attach any kind of emotion to that whatsoever.’
She continued: ‘I could never have predicted that I’d end up getting an emergency c-section, or why, and I could never have predicted that breastfeeding would come so naturally to both my body and my baby.
‘After a decade long love affair of action / reaction between myself and my body respectively, I can safely say that the tables have turned. Expectations…lol.’

It comes after last week the fitness guru detailed her recovery since giving birth, explaining that she’s taking ‘baby steps’ while six days postpartum.
Sharing that the meal out was ‘a small step in the right direction’, the daughter of presenters Richard and Judy detailed her initial fear of going out with a newborn.
She opted for a subtle palette of makeup, while beaming with Bodhi Rae on her lap.
The infant was fast asleep at the table, nestled into her mum’s knee with both arms above her head.

Detailing the significance of the outing, Chloe explained that following her C-section, recovery has been key – meaning getting out of the house for dinner is a milestone.
She penned: ‘6 days PP, a very impromptu meal (I say ‘meal’, really just a LOT of Iberico ham and a very large glass of rose ) with a brand new sleeping piglet on my lap.
‘Obviously you can’t really do much in the days / weeks following a c-section, add to that, recovery from any form of childbirth and or major surgery is KEY, so this 45minute meal felt like a REALLY big deal.
‘The scariest bit was taking a newborn into an actual restaurant, but it felt like a small step in the right direction towards regaining some independence and maintaining my mental health.

‘And after a little trepidation, it was, obviously, absolutely fiiiine. Baby slept, I ate, and everyone left happy.
Adding that it’s all about ‘baby steps’, Chloe continued the lengthy caption: ‘I suppose I’m writing this because I’ve always been a big fan of baby steps, it’s something I repeat to new clients on a weekly basis, but now it’s something I’m repeating to myself.
‘Whatever the end goal, baby steps. One thing at a time. No pressure, no problem. Self care, self love, and above all, PATIENCE.’
Ending the post with an ode to her fitness clients, she concluded: ‘Clients, i will be citing this post to you in a few weeks time and, I miss you all.’
