Captioning the image of her note "God bless the NHS!" Paloma’s letter read: "After a difficult labour resulting in an emergency caesarean I gave birth to my first child with whom I am over the moon, in love and delighted. What a trip! It was all with the help of some incredible doctors, midwives and nurses at UCH NHS Hospital.
"The devotion, kindness and commitment shown by all of them was second to none and I am humbled by the whole experience. I really believe the NHS to be one of the greatest achievements of this country, and it should be respected and protected by all.
"I am humbled by the unfaltering dedication I witnessed and received there. So thank you to the NHS, Melissa Whitten, Georgia Seiti, Wendy Hill, all in the Fetal Assessement Unit and the Maternity Care Units. And god bless the NHS!"
Former ‘The Voice’ mentor Paloma didn’t reveal the gender of her newborn baby in keeping with her vow to not raise her child in the public eye, which she made when she announced she was pregnant in August.
During her pregnancy, Paloma, 35, didn’t share any updates or any bump photos.
