"So very grateful that I had been double vaccinated, " she continued, before thanking the NHS and praising the vaccination programme and roll out.
"Thank you to our incredible @nhsggc & all those responsible for the brilliant vaccine roll out across Scotland. #covid #covidpositive #pregnancy #vaccination."
