Bunton also described how hard it was going on tour with The Spice Girls so soon after giving birth. "At the time, I thought going on tour so soon after Beau would be a great idea. I should have thought about it more! I had the best time, but it was hard," she said. "You have to get back in shape and your fitness has to be up to a two-hour show every night. And there's the pressure of looking good in your stage costumes. I don"t know if I'd put myself through that again, to tell you the truth."
"It's tough for any woman returning to work straight after having a baby. I didn't want to be in the gym 24 hours a day, instead of being with Beau. And, I wanted to breastfeed for the first couple of months. I did lots of walking, but I couldn't do sit-ups, because I'd had a Caesarean, as I was overdue.
"So, for the first four weeks after having Beau, I did nothing, absolutely nothing. I had to relax and take time out. The first fortnight of the tour, I did feel self-conscious but, one night, I was up on stage and it just hit me: hold on, Emma, everyone knows you've just had a baby, enjoy it. After that, it was wonderful and I had a great time," she added.
