Zoe Hendrix Gets Diagnosed With Mastitis Through An Instagram Photo!

Married at First Sight’s Zoe Hendrix wasn’t aware she was suffering with a serious health problem until she shared a photo with her followers on Instagram. 

The 27 year old reality TV star shared a photo of herself lying on the bed with baby Harper suffering with what she thought was simply the flu. But her followers recognised the signs of mastitis and promptly told her so.

“I’m in bed with a temp of 39, sore throat, body aches and an 8 week old,” Hendrix wrote.

“I salute all you mums/dads with chronic and serious illness who get up everyday and push through the pain and take care of your kids. This shit is hard.”

The new mum was instantly bombarded with messages from concerned mums saying her symptoms were typical of mastitis, an inflammatory condition caused by blocked milk ducts.

“Please get the home doctor (call 13 SICK) to your home NOW for medication as it can quickly escalate overnight and you may end up in hospital,” wrote one fan.

“As soon as I saw this I thought Mastitis, and I see others have mentioned the same,” wrote another. “Get to the doc love and take care!”

Hendrix, took heed of all the warnings and took action!

She later posted an update of her condition thanking her followers for their advice and concern.

“Thank you to all you wonderful and switched on followers who informed me about Mastitis in my last post which I thought was just the flu,” she wrote.

“I have been on antibiotics, pain relief, and my angel of a mother in law has been helping me care for Harper. I am starting to feel human again after feeling like I was hit by a truck!”

A clear example of social media being used for good and how it can help a new mum with positive advice (and not judgement) navigate her way through motherhood!
