Jessica Biel wanted to give birth the 'hippie' way, but ended up having a C-Section after things went wrong at home
Jessica Biel talks about how Justin Timberlake and she wanted to have a natural birth but happened to have a c-section in the end.
Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake welcomed their son Silas Timberlake on April 8, 2015, and with just a few days left for him to turn three, the pair is opening up about how they welcomed him into the world. In a new book, 'The Nanny Connie Way: Secrets to Mastering the First Four Months of Parenthood', Jessica and Justin talk about how nanny Connie Simpson helped them change their life into life as new parents.
"Our story with Nanny Connie started the day we brought our son home from the hospital," the couple writes in an excerpt from the book as reported by ET. "That may sound like a normal statement coming from new parents, except our birth plan was anything but normal." The pair confessed that they wanted to have a natural childbirth and were trying to avoid going to the hospital as much as they could.
We had two midwives, one doula, one meditation birthing class, a ton of hippie baby books, and a lovely home in the Hollywood Hills that we had turned into a labor training facility that we called The Octagon. So, not exactly normal," they wrote.
While the couple thought that they had everything in place, things did not work out the way they wanted to as Jessica ended up having an emergency C-section. "When all our plans fell apart and the serene, natural childbirth we had envisioned ended with a transfer to the hospital and an emergency C-section, we arrived home exhausted, disillusioned, and totally in shock," the couple writes.
Jessica was adamant on making things work her way and in the most natural way she could, but unfortunately for her, things did not go so planned at the end. "When all our plans fell apart and the serene, natural childbirth we had envisioned ended with a transfer to the hospital and an emergency C-section, we arrived home exhausted, disillusioned, and totally in shock," the couple writes.
"I was obsessed with everything organic, toxin-free, natural, and homeopathic for our kid, who came into this world in an operating room through an incision. I was a dictator, making myself and my husband insane!" Despite the fact that the pregnancy did not go as expected, the pair was happy to welcome their little one and have loved every part of it ever since.
