Pink Opens Up About Her Birth Experience

New mom Pink recently opened up about her experience giving birth to daughter Willow Sage and how it didn’t go quite according to plan.

“We watched Ricki Lake‘s documentary The Business of Being Born early on. It was so enlightening and empowering.  We took all kinds of classes and decided to work with midwives at The Sanctuary … I was really looking forward to the whole rite of passage — giving birth perfectly present, unmedicated, in the way nature intended.”

Despite her best efforts, the rocker had to deliver her daughter via C-Section after 2 days of laboring:

“She was in the frank breech position, which is head up with her legs up by her head in a pike position. We tried everything to turn her around.  Turns out this little girl had other plans — she is my daughter, after all.”

It all turned out perfectly in the end, even though it wasn’t what we intended, because she is healthy and happy and so am I.  We’ll go for our natural birth next time, for sure.”

Pink also shared that newborns aren’t as scary as everyone makes them out to be:

“[Willow's] been amazing. Everyone gives you this terrifying picture of no sleep at all, bickering which leads to divorce … they made it sound like waterboarding. “It’s not that bad! I think I’ve cried more than she has and that’s just because I’m emotional and a little nuts.”
