Paloma Faith poses with cabbage on her breasts amid health condition

Paloma Faith has been diagnosed with acute breast engorgement – and is trying to fix the problem by placing cabbage leaves on her nipples.

She has the condition that makes breastfeeding extremely painful but has made a move to ease her agony.

After a complicated pregnancy, the singing sensation gave birth to an adorable baby girl last weekend.

The new arrival is Paloma's second child with her partner Leyman Lahcine, having welcomed another daughter with the French artist four years ago.

But she says she is in "next level pain" as she attempts to soothe her 'rock hard boobs' by using cabbage leaves.

The star says it's an historic remedy and the veg helps ease the pressure.

The 39-year-old revealed she underwent a planned C-section as part of the delivery, with the procedure leaving her in a "lot of pain" in the hours after the birth.

Now in her latest social media post, she has talked about the pain she is in after docs told her the bad news.
