Since the birth of her son Sebastian, the most we’ve heard about Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa as parents is that they believe in dressing their little boy in weed booties. But what we didn’t know was that Amber Rose took the job of bringing her son into the world very seriously. She had done a lot research including watching the Ricki Lake produced documentary, The Business of Being Born. In the film Ricki takes the audience on a very real, very graphic look into the at home water-birth.

After watching the film, Rose decided that she too wanted to have a water birth. But as you may know when you make plans for your children, they rarely go down the way you envision. Very late in her pregnancy, like 37 weeks, she learned that little Sebastian was breech. Still she was adamant about wanting to have her baby at home. In an interview with Ricki Lake she explained that she tried acupuncture and inversion where doctors attempt to manually move the baby. None of that worked and she ultimately had to have a c-section.

“It literally took me the whole time to prepare myself for a water birth that in an instant I was gonna get my abdomen cut open and major surgery. I’ve never had surgery before so I was really, really scared.”

  • Just saying!!

    Sorry to be silly but what does it mean that the baby was “breech”. I’ve never heard the word used in that context…

    Seen that same doc and sad the same thing. I’m a big baby when I comes to pain but its also unnerving that a lot of doctors haven’t seen a natural birth. Maybe a birthing center for when I do finally have children. Doctors or too quick to suggest c section. It was a time where c sections were the last option now they are the first and that speaks volumes. I also dont want to be pumped with drugs that make it harder to deliver naturally.

    Baby’s always have their own plan. But as long as they are healthy it doesn’t even matter how they get here. Good luck to Amber and Wiz on their love child.
