Earlier, Olivia revealed she was humiliated by cruel trolls for posting pictures in her underwear while pregnant.
The TV personality recently opened up about the harsh criticism she received for sharing photos of herself wearing underwear during pregnancy on social media.
She admitted that she felt judged from the moment she announced her pregnancy, as she said there was always criticism of her and her husband Alex’s decisions.
Olivia told C&G Baby Club’s #LoveDontJudge campaign: “As soon as you announce your pregnancy you’re judged, there’s always someone who’s not happy for you and we’re judged right away.”

The mum-to-be admits she’s no stranger to judgment, having experienced trolling since leaving her Love Island villa as she talks about being slammed for snapping her underwear.
She told Alex: “We’ve been around for a long time, haven’t we? Be judged by different things.
“In the early days of my pregnancy, the thing that bothered me the most was ‘you shouldn’t post in your underwear’.”
Alex, who also appeared on the campaign trail, admitted he had been criticized for DJing, saying he was told he would not be able to continue working when his children were born, despite his plans to pursue music as a career.

Olivia also spoke about other decisions parents were judged on, including giving their child a dummy, adding: “The list is literally endless.”
She went on to urge people to “think twice” before commenting on social media.
Alex added: “I think it’s time for more support and less judgment.”
In the video, Oliver and Alex speak in front of a white wall with several comments written in support of C&G Baby Club’s latest campaign.
Seven in 10 parents say they are often judged for the way they choose to have and raise their children, according to a study.
The reality TV star is helping to promote #LoveDontJudge, a campaign to raise awareness of the damaging effects of parental judgment, with tips, unbiased advice and support through articles and a dedicated careline.

Olivia shared the happy news that she and Alex are pregnant with their first child on New Year’s Day.
The couple previously revealed they would not determine the baby’s gender until the baby was born in June and wanted their nursery to be “gender neutral”.
Earlier this year, Olivia told the Daily Mail that she was pregnant: “I’m so excited to be a mum. It still feels very surreal to even say it, but we all can’t wait for the next part of our lives. Alex would be the best dad ever – he’s very loving, kind, and a big kid at heart.
“My pregnancy is going very fast; we still can’t quite believe it’s happening. We have to stop buying all baby clothes now, we’re so excited.
“When we told family and friends they were shocked but I knew early on, you know your body. We won’t know what we have and I think the surprise will make it special.
