The actress appeared on Tuesday's This Morning to talk about her film, Wander Darkly, and admitted she connected to the script as it focuses on a couple dealing with 'challenges' in their relationship one year after welcoming a baby.

Sienna said: 'I remember when I had Marlowe, yes, people would phone and say, "I'm sure you're in your blissful little bubble" and I was obsessed with my daughter but I was also in absolute hell.'

Recalling the difficult time, the actress continued: 'Because you lose 24 hours sleep a week overnight, you spend so much time preparing for the birth and then you have to take the baby home and I didn't know what I was doing. 

'It was intense, I had a traumatic birth, but the whole thing I felt like I failed at something by not being blissful in the first stages of parenthood.'

Sienna shares her eight-year-old daughter with former partner Tom Sturridge, from whom she split in 2015, following a four-year romance.  

The actress has previously shared how she wanted a 'natural water birth' but instead endured a painful 27-hour long labour which resulted in an urgent caesarean.

Talking about how she resonated with the film script, Sienna added: 'I like the fact the script deals with that and having spoken to lots of mums in the aftermath, I think it's not an uncommon feeling to be really overwhelmed and find things hard.' 

Elsewhere during the interview, Sienna revealed that Marlowe, now eight, 'refuses' to let her do accents at home while preparing for film roles.

WHAT ARE THE MEDICAL REASONS FOR A CAESAREAN?

There are various reasons why a doctor may recommend that you have a caesarean section instead of giving birth vaginally.

If you had complications in a previous pregnancy or birth, or in your current pregnancy, you may be advised to have what’s called a planned or elective caesarean, or a planned repeat caesarean.

If you were planning to give birth vaginally, but complications during labour or birth mean that you’re advised to give birth by caesarean, you’ll have what’s called an unplanned or emergency caesarean. 

Here are some reasons why doctors may opt for a planned or emergency caesarean, rather than a vaginal birth:

You've already had at least one caesarean section. Your baby is in a bottom-down, or breech, position. Your baby is in a sideways (transverse) position, or keeps changing its position (unstable lie). You have a low-lying placenta (placenta praevia). You have a medical condition, such as heart disease or diabetes. You have lost a baby in the past, either before or during labour. You’re expecting twins or more.
