Louise Thompson releases new book

Lucky is a deeply inspiring and beautifully told life story of survival and endurance from former Made in Chelsea star and social media influencer, Louise Thompson.

For the first time since giving birth to her son Leo, Louise shares the story of her devastating birthing experience and the series of life-threatening events that followed. In her new memoir, she documents the incredible journey she’s been on since in the hope that what she’s learnt along the way will help others.

Louise’s road to having a baby was for from easy, suffering a heartbreaking miscarriage during her first pregnancy and being caught in a terrifying house fire in her second. But her troubles were far from over when she gave birth. During an emergency c-section, she had severe complications and fought for her life over a number of days, whilst her son was taken to NICU. This terrifying experience impacted on Louise’s mental health in a way that completely changed her life, as she has battled to come to terms with what happened to her, both physically and mentally, whilst also becoming a mother.

As Louise has rebuilt herself step by step, she has reflected back on her past – from her childhood and close relationship with her brother, Sam Thompson, to her struggles with alcohol and toxic relationships, as well as the rollercoaster years of her time on Made in Chelsea.

Louise’s experience has changed the way she sees the world and redefined what’s important to her. Although it has been a challenging journey, she is determined to come out more alive than ever. Louise’s powerful story, told with raw honesty, shows the incredible human ability to overcome anything, no matter what life throws at you.
