Amber Rose Reveals To Ricki Lake The Complications She Had When Giving Birth To Her Son
Amber Rose stopped by The Ricki Lake Show to discuss her birth experience while delivering her son “Bash”.
Amber planned on having a natural birth at home but instead she found out she had a breeched baby. A breeched birth is when the infant’s feet are positioned to come out first instead of the head and usually a C-Section is recommended to get the baby out.
“At 37 weeks, one of the mid wives said that the big lump on top by my ribs was the baby’s head. My midwife was like go to the doctor, get an ultrasound and confirm that he is breeched. Once I confirmed it with the doctor, I decided to have a C-section. At that point, I just wanted my baby.”
Her husband Wiz Khalifa added “When I found out that he was breeched, it made me feel nervous at first because you don’t want to hear anything bad about a pregnancy. You want it to go how you plan it. Of course it wasn’t with the plan of how we wanted it to happen but as mentally prepared as we were for the water birth we had to get as prepared for the C-section.”
Amber also went on to say that she used every method possible to avoid the C-Section, “They tried to turn my baby around by doing really hard pelvic massages, I tried mugwort, acupuncture, and my last result was inversion, which is when you go to the hospital and they manually try to turn your baby. They push his head down and push his butt up. It hurt a lot. It was very painful and at that point after I tried everything, I was like I just want my baby. If I have to have a C-Section, fine. I told Wiz, if we go to the hospital and my baby turns around, I’m going back home.”
“When I went in I was terrified, like shaking I was so scared. Then, when Wiz came in he just talked to me the whole time and then all of a sudden we heard Sebastian cry and then we both started crying like, ‘Oh my God!! Our baby is here.”
What a scary moment! I'm so glad the baby is healthy but so sorry Amber had to go through that.
