Taking to Instagram she shared a picture of herself breastfeeding her son Roman with a tear-stained face.
She can be seen looking very emotional as she nurses the tot.
On the sad picture Lucy wrote: "One year ago memory on my photos just popped up.
"3 month old Roman fully in lockdown feeling very much alone, sleep deprived and overwhelmed.
"I wanted to share it as I know there will be new mums feeling like this right now & I can promise you it will get easier.
"For me it got more manageable, more enjoyable, less repetitive & less demanding."
She ended with: "It was hard to reach out for help/support then but now please do."
This latest candid post after Lucy recently lashed out at women who pass judgment on her parenting skills.
Lucy labelled her critics the "mum police" but admitted she does her best to to ignore the haters as she raises her son Roman, one.
The 29-year-old, who is engaged to actor Ryan Thomas, told New that people on social media are all too quick to pass judgement.
When asked if she get 'any negative online comments as a mum', she quickly she shot back, "you mean the mum police?"
"Yes! When you put any aspect of your life on social media people have their opinions," she explained.
"But unless I ask for advice in a question box on my Instagram stories, I just ignore the comments.
"At the end of the day, mum knows best. Every baby is different and no one knows your baby like you do."
Ryan also spoke out publicly about the pressures of being a parent in the public eye.
When asked on his Instagram stories what advice he had for a new parent, he said, "there's no rule book with parenting".
"As long as you show them love and affection, the rest will fit into place."
Ryan and Lucy's relationship blossomed on Celebrity Island With Bear Grylls back in 2017.
Before getting together with Lucy, Ryan dated fellow Coronation Street star Tina O’Brien, 37, for six years.
Things ended just weeks before their daughter Scarlett’s first birthday.
