Viewers in Australia have recently seen Leah left devastated as she suffered another miscarriage, just a few weeks after her discovery that she was pregnant.
The chef also feels guilty over her loss as she had initially been apprehensive about the pregnancy, having previously suffered another miscarriage during her relationship with Dan.
Nicodemou has now told TV Week that Leah starts to push Miles (Josh Quong Tart) away in the aftermath of the tragedy, telling him that he should be with another woman as she will not be trying to get pregnant again.
"Leah doesn't know if Miles should stay in the relationship," Nicodemou explained. "She's pushing him away and doesn't want him to miss out on something he wants so badly - to be a father again.
"Leah gives Miles an ultimatum that's a total shock to him. He can't believe what he is hearing. Leah is looking for an easy option to push Miles away, rather than dealing with her guilt and grief."
The actress added: "She's blaming Miles, and if she keeps pushing him away, it could lead to heartbreak for them both."
