A Gold Coast fitness star has detailed her agony after she gave birth to her baby daughter, stillborn.

Super fit mum Sophie Guidolin hinted in December she was expecting her first baby with her doctor husband Andrew Firgaira – just one month after the couple tied the knot.

But on Wednesday, the 33-year-old – who has four children from her previous marriage – shared that her daughter Pixie was born on January 25, stillborn.

Guidolin began the post with a trigger warning to other expectant mothers before saying she could “not begin to articulate my pain, grief and despair through my entire soul”.

“On Wednesday, Jan 25th, a day I will never forget, my life was changed forever,” she told her 549,000 Instagram followers.

“I gave birth to a beautiful little girl, Pixie, via C-section, stillborn.

“I am trying to trust in god’s timing and I have always believed that the universe has my back and no matter how confusing this all feels, I am trying to make sense of this grief with my faith.

“I feel so guilty for my thoughts prior, and I would do anything to have that pain, over this harrowing experience.”

The mother said she doesn’t “even have the words on how to write or how to comprehend this”.

She thanked her doctor and hospital maternity team before expressing gratitude to family and friends for “dropping everything… in the hardest time of my life”.

“Maybe some souls were always meant to be angels,” she said, before ending the post with, “Pixie, I love you”.

Guidolin has been candid online throughout her difficult pregnancy journey.

On January 8, she posted from hospital, sharing that although she has loved pregnancy, “I am so exhausted, I’m so sick”.

“(I am) sharing the not-so-incredible side to this pregnancy so far, as I never want someone to click my page, see a photo and assume it’s all sunshine, making them feel alone,” she said.

“As documented previously, I have loved pregnancy. Every single moment, every kick, even the sickness was made bearable by the fact that a miracle was coming into the world.”

On Monday, Guidolin shared an “Instagram versus reality” series of photos, with the first being a sweet photo with her daughter, showing her pregnant belly.

The second was of Guidolin sitting on the beach with a vomit bag.

“I lasted about 20 minutes in the heat, sun and public display of being sick (I literally just have to laugh because I cry the rest of the time),” she said.

“I don’t really have many other words other than living in a space of gratitude for the strength of other women who have been through this, my four healthy kids and the simplicity of health when you have it.”

The personal trainer married her husband Andrew Firgaira in November after they became engaged in June 2022.

A month later, she shared a picture showing what appeared to be two faintly positive pregnancy tests.

“Hellooooo subscribers… can you see a double line on here? Is this a honeymoon bebe?” she wrote in December.
