“We watched Ricki Lake‘s documentary The Business of Being Born early on. It was so enlightening and empowering,” Pink tells.
Pink and husband Carey Hart took all the necessary steps to prepare themselves.
“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.”
However, once Pink went into labor things changed.
“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,” Pink, 31, reveals. “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,” the singer adds. “We’ll go for our natural birth next time, for sure.”
