And since having a baby, I will regularly wake up and think I’ve lost her.“I imagine she’s in bed with me and I’ve dropped her, or I’ve lost her.

Quite a few times, my partner has found me on the floor scrabbling around under things or in cupboards, looking for the baby.“I’m asleep — my brain isn’t working enough to know she actually is there, because I’m looking at things and I’m not seeing what’s really there.“I’m just seeing whatever my brain is tricking me into.”She recalled the time her partner woke to find her screaming and helped her calm down, saying: “It’s really quite scary.“And lately the night terrors are of not being able to do my job.“Last night, I thought I was live on the studio floor and saw a man exposing himself to me, pressing himself up naked against the glass.
