I don’t want to go through another surgery - Janet Mbugua
She revealed this 2 months close to her due date.
The TV personality disclosed that she hopes to have a normal birth as opposed to a C-Section which took place during the birth of her son Huru.
“I am trying to do as much as I can to have a different birth this time. I want to push this baby. I did my first C-Section for my first baby, Huru because he was the breech position and I remember at that time thinking ‘As long as it’s good for the baby, I’m fine’. And that is how I exactly I feel even this time round except that this time I’m being so intentional about pushing. For me the main reason is that I don’t want to go through another surgery, it’s really that simple. However if that’s God’s plan I am not going to fight it,” She said on her Vlog.
To make pushing possible, Janet has employed the talents of a Doula (a birth coach). “I’ve gotten a Doula and we had a meeting the other day and she told me that we will properly work up to the process of pushing towards the end of August ,a month before my due date.”
In addition to the Doula, Janet is drinking Raspberry Leaf Tea which is believed to strengthen the uterus as well as the pelvic area and eating dates. These two will get her body in a better position to push. To complement her diet and Doula, Janet is also engaging is some kneeling exercises that will ‘turn the baby’.
