Victoria Beckham's back agony: New mother's slipped disc means she struggles to hold her baby daughter Harper

By Daily Mail Reporter

Victoria Beckham is suffering a plight that must be every mother's worst nightmare.

She only gave birth to daughter Harper 5 week sago, but thanks to a back injury she is currently unable to even hold her baby or leave the house without assistance.

The 37-year-old has picked up a crippling slipped disc, leaving her incapacitated and struggling to perform even the most menial duties.

A report in The Daily Mirror claims that Victoria had a bad back during her fourth pregnancy which became aggravated during her C-section operation.

She is now battling to get back on her feet in time for New York Fashion Week next month where she will showcase her Spring/Summer 2012 collection.

Victoria has apparently hired a team of chiropractors to assist her in regaining her fitness - which goes some way to explaining why the former Spice Girl has been absent from the public eye in recent weeks.

The source claimed: 'Rumours Victoria has been frantically exercising and trying to lose her baby weight could not be further from the truth. Victoria is in a lot of pain and even struggling to hold Harper.

'She is really down about the whole thing as she just wants to be able to play with her daughter like any new mum.

'When she goes to breastfeed, David has to basically prop-up the baby. But Victoria is trying to remain upbeat because she really does feel so blessed with the birth of her beautiful daughter. She is determined not to let this injury overshadow the happiness surrounding Harper’s arrival.'

It had been rumoured that Victoria locked herself away in her home in order to try and impose a strict exercise regime to get back in shape for NY Fashion Week next month.

She's due to unveil her new collection at New York Fashion Week on September 11, just two months after the birth of daughter Harper Seven.

According to another source who spoke to the Daily Mail earlier this month: ‘Victoria has locked herself away at her Malibu holiday home where she has imposed a strict food regime.

‘She has instructed her chef to do a no-carb, no-sugar diet of just green vegetables and low-fat proteins.’

It had also been rumoured that she had imposed the 'five hands' diet on herself.

Within days of giving birth to her first baby girl, Victoria Beckham had tweeted her joy about the new addition to the Beckham brood.

She wrote: 'Baby Harper is the most beautiful baby girl I have ever seen, I have fallen in love all over again!!! We all feel so blessed and the boys love their baby sister so much!!! X VB.'

Weighing 7lbs, 10oz, Harper arrived at 7:55am on July 10 via caesarean section.
