Change of plans.
In an excerpt from Nanny Connie‘s new book, The Nannie Connie Way: Secrets to Mastering the First Four Months of Parenthood, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel reveal for the first time that their almost-three-year-old son, Silas, was born after an emergency C-section.
The couple wrote in the passage reported by ET:
“Our story with Nanny Connie started the day we brought our son home from the hospital. That may sound like a normal statement coming from new parents, except our birth plan was anything but normal. 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 went on:
“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. 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!”
Some things you just can’t plan for! We’re glad everyone is happy and healthy now!
