Emmerdale’s Amy Walsh details fears that ‘heavy content would affect her unborn baby

Amy Walsh of Emmerdale has spoken out about her postnatal depression plotline, revealing that she was afraid that the ‘heavy content and emotional scenes’ may harm her pregnant child.

In the midst of the grueling plot, the 34-year-old actress, who plays Tracy Metcalfe on the soap, found she was pregnant with her first child.

Because the Emmerdale team was unaware of the pregnancy at the time, the actress sought counsel from her midwife.

‘It was a lot of heavy stuff and emotional sequences, so I checked with my midwife to make sure that me sobbing all the time at work wasn’t damaging the baby,’ Amy told The Mirror.

When the soap diva was questioned if she was leaving work ‘glad and pleased,’ she said that she was getting endorphins from doing well at work, as opposed to personally suffering through the agony.

‘It was extremely taxing, but I just pulled through,’ the sister of Girls Aloud pop star Kimberley said despite this. I was unwell, so every 15 minutes or so, I’d dash off set for a handful of almonds or a satsuma.’

The new mother gushed about how well the soap handled the issue.

‘Emmerdale didn’t know for the first few months, but they were fantastic after I informed them. They claimed they could make the plot less dramatic if I didn’t like it, but I’d already filmed the majority of it,’ she explained.

Amy and her partner Toby-Alexander Smith, who plays Gray Atkins on EastEnders, were first-time parents over the holidays and shared their pleasure on Instagram.

‘Well…been it’s a hectic week!’ I hope you everyone had a wonderful time. She gushed, “HAPPY NEW YEAR from the three of us xxx @ok mag @toby alexander smith.”

Amy, who first visited the Dales over seven years ago, told the publication that the tale surprised her at first, but that she is not concerned.

She went on to say that it’s “great” that she’s prepared and that “knowing there’s aid” is “what the plot is all about.”

Amy and Toby have been dating since 2019, when they met in the audience of Strictly Come Dancing.

While Toby was there to support co-star Emma Barton, Amy was there to support Kelvin Fletcher, a former Emmerdale actor.

In 2020, they moved in together and in April of the following year, they announced their pregnancy.

Amy had always wanted children but was concerned that having them would be difficult after learning she had polycystic ovaries at the age of 20.

As the interview came to a conclusion, the mother-of-one and auntie-of-seven stated that she and her family had relocated from Hertfordshire to East London in order to be closer to her family, with Kimberley having a six-month-old and her older sister Sally having a five-month-old.
