EastEnders’ Sid Owen on traumatising moment fiancée nearly died giving birth to first baby

SID OWEN has recalled the traumatic moment when his fiancée was left bleeding during their first child’s birth.

The former EastEnders star, who had already turned 50 when the big moment arrived, was looking forward to becoming a father later in life. Sid Owen, on the other hand, was on pins and needles after his partner Victoria Shores was rushed to the hospital for an emergency caesarean after losing two pints of blood.

Victoria, 42, gave birth to Skye, the couple’s much-loved new daughter, earlier this month.

Despite the fact that she already has two children from a previous relationship, her attempts to conceive with Sid have been fraught with anxiety.

Victoria awoke to find blood all over her sheets after becoming pregnant with baby number two, after previously experiencing the stress and disappointment of a miscarriage.

Terrified Victoria, who hadn’t been in labour for “over a decade” when she got pregnant again, immediately feared the worst.

Sid shared his concern, admitting: “I couldn’t cope with losing Vic, I was more concerned about her.

“I’m still trying to process the trauma of it.”

With over a month left to go before the new arrival was expected, the pair “knew something wasn’t right”, so an ambulance was called and she was rushed to hospital.

The couple was informed that Victoria had a condition known as placenta previa, which causes the placenta to cover the cervix and prevents a natural birth.

Victoria, who usually works as a waitress, was monitored by nurses for 24 hours, and the couple waited with baited breath.

After the time limit had expired, they informed her that she would need an emergency caesarean section.

Sid’s “relief” at the resolution was tempered with fear about the “very dangerous” procedure.

He recalled to The Sun: “We were told she could haemorrhage, lose her womb or worse.”

Sid took his partner’s hand in his and tried to remain “as calm as possible” as they faced the dangerous procedure.

Skye arrived, and despite her small size (5lb 5oz), she was able to breathe on her own.

“I seemed to be in trouble as soon as the baby was out. It was possible that I would die “Victoria confessed.

Doctors had to give the heavily haemorrhaging star two litres of blood to keep her stable.

The couple praised the NHS for their “amazing” role in “keeping everyone safe”.

Victoria was at a higher risk during her pregnancy because of her age, previous miscarriage history, and the length of time since she had last given birth.

Sid is still traumatized from the near-miss, but he’s focused on being the best father he can be to Skye.
