Miranda Kerr has revealed she thought she was "going to die" during childbirth.

The Australian model recalled the excruciating experience of giving birth to son Flynn - her first child with husband Orlando Bloom - last January.

"I actually thought I was going to die at one point and left my body. I was looking down on myself - the pain was so intense," she told Australia's InStyle.

"I kept thinking, 'How do women do this?' But if other women have done this, I can do it too. I was determined."

Miranda said the Lord Of The Rings star is a hands-on dad.

"It's whoever has their hands free. When I'm not working we don't have a nanny," the 28-year-old continued.

"Some nights we have a lady who comes in to help out, but Flynn is getting better at sleeping now, so not as often. And if I need to get on a plane for one day of work, I pump my milk and put it into the freezer for Orlando."

The Victoria's Secret model has lost her baby pounds, but said she wouldn't have worried about childbirth affecting her figure.

"[Flynn is] a big baby, 4.5 kilograms [almost 10 pounds] at birth," she said.

"And I thought to myself, 'I have so much more that I want to do aside from modelling. I can live with my body not being in shape if I have a healthy son. It's worth it'."
