Catherine Britt plans for kids post-cancer

Country music star Catherine Britt has set her sights on becoming a mum since being given the all-clear from breast cancer.

The Newcastle-born singer-songwriter had six months of chemotherapy and a month of radiation after she was diagnosed last year, aged 30.

Britt says it'll take at least a year for her to feel healthy and fit again, and then she'll likely start trying for children with husband James.

"I have to wait a little bit just to make sure all the treatment's out of my body. I don't want to put a baby in there until I feel 100 per cent," she told AAP.

The couple married in October 2015 while she was undergoing treatment and this year went travelling around Australia on a delayed honeymoon.

When they got home, Britt had another scare after a check-up found a tumour in her abdomen. She said waiting to find out it wasn't cancer was the most horrible week of her life.

"It was way worse than being diagnosed," she said.

"It was so different for us. I had to deal with that emotionally in my head. I had to go, 'Ok, I may die'."

Now she's feeling healthy, the Golden Guitar winner will be back on the road doing what she loves most.

She'll tour the country in a caravan and rent out her Newcastle home.

"We're going to start getting our house ready and we're building a studio granny flat out the back so we've got a base to come home to and so I can make my new record there," Britt said.

"We'll actually end up being better off being on the road - somebody else paying the mortgage for a while, get some savings before we have some kiddos."

Britt said she feels really happy and lucky.

"I've got a beautiful husband, a beautiful family, great friends and a wonderful career. I really don't have anything to complain about, except for being tired and still feeling a bit s***," she said.
