Amber Rose Shares C-Section Delivery Story

Posted by Alissa Robson

New mom Amber Rose is opening up about her delivery – and how she learned the lesson that no matter how much you plan, babies often have their own agendas!

Before becoming pregnant, Rose was already a huge fan of Ricki Lake’s documentary “The Business of Being Born”. But once she found out a baby was on the way, she and fiancé Wiz Khalifa re-watched the powerful documentary and began to create their own home birth plan.

“When I had Wiz watch it, he was just like, ‘You have to do this, we have to do this together,’” she said. The couple worked with midwives and a doula, and prepared for their home birth by buying a birthing pool.

But at the end of her pregnancy, Rose’s careful plan was completely undone when she found out that her baby had shifted into the breech position. After trying various homeopathic remedies and going to the hospital to see if the baby could be manually turned, Rose had to concede defeat.

“At that point, after I tried everything, I was like, ‘I just want my baby, if I have to have a c-section, fine,’” she says. “But I told Wiz, ‘If we go to the hospital and my baby turns around, I’m going back home!’”

Despite the fear that came with chucking their birth plan out the window, Khalifa and Rose focused on welcoming their new son, whom they called Sebastian Taylor. And though he came into the world in a completely unexpected manner, his arrival hasn’t stopped Rose from planning for future babies.

“I feel like I made the right decision, but I knew right after having a c-section that [with] our next baby I definitely want to have my baby at home,” she said.

Sounds like Rose is tempting fate again, but we wish her all the best with new baby Sebastian and his future siblings!
