Emma told the Mail on Sunday’s You magazine over the weekend that she delayed trying to get pregnant due to the pandemic but ‘cried her eyes out’ when she discovered it might now be too late to become a mother for a third time.

‘At first I put it down to the pandemic. But then the anxiety became more regular, until it was daily.

‘I was also lethargic. Something wasn’t right. I looked up the symptoms and saw I had quite a few.

‘So I spoke to someone on Zoom who came to the same conclusion. I was perimenopausal.’

‘I thought, ‘Is this the end? It’s been a very weird time. I’m a very mumsy person – when I see my friends’ babies, I always become broody. But now I thought, ‘OK, this is it.’ ‘

She is now on a low dose of hormone replacement therapy and is undecided about having a third baby.

Describing a Spice Girls tour of the US and Canada in 2007 just weeks after Beau was born, she recalls: ‘Physically, my body wasn’t ready to be doing two-hour shows every night.

‘Your hips don’t move the way they should, I fell over a couple of times backstage. I cried at everything, my skin broke out in rashes.

‘I said to our physio ‘What’s going on?’ and he laughed, ‘What do you mean? You just had a baby!’ ‘

Nowadays she juggles work commitments around the school run, but credits Jade, the former lead singer of R&B band Damage, for her continued success.

‘He makes everything calm. He’s sacrificed a lot,’ she says.

What is Perimenopause?

Perimenopause, or menopause transition, begins several years before menopause. It’s the time when the ovaries gradually begin to make less estrogen. It usually starts in women’s 40s, but can start in their 30s or even earlier.

Perimenopause lasts up until menopause, the point when the ovaries stop releasing eggs. In the last 1 to 2 years of perimenopause, this drop in estrogen speeds up. At this stage, many women have menopause symptoms.

How Long Does Perimenopause Last?

The average length of perimenopause is 4 years, but for some women this stage may last only a few months or continue for 10 years. Perimenopause ends when women have gone 12 months without having their period.
