A midwife who told her patient she had slept with her baby’s father is “in absolute bits” after the affair went public.

One Born Every Minute midwife Joanne Lumsden appeared on the Channel 4 reality show when it was filmed at Liverpool Women’s Hospital back in 2015, and is being investigated after she revealed the tryst to the new mum who was under her care.

Her friends have now claimed she is devastated by the events and is a “lovely” woman who is in “bits”.

One pal wrote on Facebook: “You(‘re) sl***ing the young girl off – There are two sides to a story and then the truth.

“I know for a fact the Jo is in absolute bits over this. And her family who are lovely people too.”

And another friend wrote: “I’ve been mates with this midwife for many years and she is the most lovely person ever.

“I can’t say exactly why she’s told the mother but I guess it’s due to the fact she’s dead against cheating.

“Maybe she thought the woman had the right to (know) what her fella was really like – Let’s be honest here he obviously knew he had a girl. How’s Joanne (meant) to (know)?”

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, the mum recalled how her partner was “acting strangely” and avoiding pregnancy scans and appointments following his trip to Spain. He then missed their daughter’s birth when the mum was admitted to the hospital for a c-section last summer, a move which she claims was to ensure his affair with Joanne wasn’t uncovered.

The new mum doesn’t want to be named, but claimed that her partner cheated on her with Joanne before she fell pregnant, while on holiday in Benidorm. The mum said: “She said, ‘I rubbed sun cream into his back’.

“That’s what she told me on the ward while I’m there with my baby trying to breast feed her.”

The mum, who is no longer with her child’s father, launched an official complaint and is taking legal action against the hospital trust.
