‘Last check-up before little princess arrives.’

She also revealed she had been able to enjoy her first bath in seven months, after having her cervical stitch removed in preparation for labour.

A cervical stitch is a common treatment for pregnant woman who have had previous cervical surgery.

If the cervix is getting shorter in early pregnancy, women may be offered a cervical stitch (also known as a cerclage or cervical suture) with the aim of keeping the cervix closed during pregnancy.

Chloe had half her cervix removed in 2018, telling her fans in an emotional video posted in November that ‘my surgeon did tell me it would cause me to have problems with having a baby.’

She explained: ‘Now even if you’ve just had the loop or even if you’re just normally pregnant, you’ve got no previous thought for why your cervix is weak, or anything like that, when you get your three month scan do yourself a favour and ask them to measure your cervix.’

In September, Chloe revealed she had accelerated her baby plans after suffering a cancer scare following a routine smear test last year, and she is now thrilled ‘everything has fallen into place’.

WHAT IS A CERVICAL STITCH?

A possible cause of giving birth early is because the cervix shortens and opens too soon. A cervical stitch may help to prevent this.

It’s placed around the cervix – the neck of the womb – usually between 12 and 24 weeks of pregnancy, although occasionally it may be done at later stages in pregnancy.

Babies born earlier than the 37 completed weeks of pregnancy have an increased risk of short and long term health problems.

Sometimes a cervical stitch is not advised because it may carry risks to you and it would not improve the outcome for the baby.

This may be if there are signs of infection, vaginal bleeding, the woman is having contractions or the waters are already broken.

There is no definite evidence to show that a cervical stitch will prevent an early labour if the mother is carrying more than one baby.
