Iskra Lawrence shares intimate home birth video and admits placenta being pulled out was ‘best feeling ever’
ISKRA Lawrence has given fans a sneak peek look at her recent home birth by sharing an intimate video and photos following the arrival of her first child.
The model welcomed her baby on April 16 with her boyfriend ,Philip Payne, but the couple has not revealed their child’s gender or name.
Iskra has shared more photos of her little bundle of joy as she adjusts to motherhood.
The latest snaps show Iskra in her home birthing pool with Philip and her midwife right beside her, just moments before she gave birth.
In the first picture, she protects her modesty with the peach emoji, while the second photo shows her holding hands with Philip and kissing him as she prepares to push.
Iskra captioned the post: “Been a tad busy trying to figure this mom thing out👀 the most magical and rewarding job but also the hardest…
“So I’m excited to finally share the best day of our lives and our greatest achievement @philipapayne our home birth story❤️.
“I wasn’t sure how much I’d want to share and I actually wasn’t even aware how much footage and pics my family got as I was 1. Locked in trying to push 2. So excited to meet bubba and 3. In the most intense pain of my entire life😬.”
Iskra continued: “Buttttt after reading so many comments and DMs from you all asking Qs especially with Covid and some of you considering a home birth instead of hospital I really wanted you to have an insight.
“So I hope you find it enlightening – any more questions drop ’em in the comments and me or this amazing Insta fam I’m sure will help you out! (sic)
“Sending my love to all the mommas to be and those trying – also my prayers and love goes to the infertility warriors❤️🙏 Forever grateful for our incredible midwife Ellie😘.”
As well as the precious photos, Iskra and Philip also filmed a video for her YouTube channel where they spoke in depth about the birth.
Cuddled up on their sofa with their little tot, the couple spoke very openly about their experience.
Speaking about the moment when she had to push out her placenta, Iskra said: “So I’m holding the baby, and got a towel between my legs because obviously there was blood everywhere like a murder scene, there was marks of blood on the wall and then I go and lay in the bed and then she pulls out the placenta – which is the best feeling in the world.”
The video then cuts to the exact moment where Iskra’s midwife tells her: “I want your placenta, so can you give me a push?”
As the mom-of-one pushed it out, she admits: “Oh wow, that was beautiful.”
She then adds: “No one told me that either, like a lovely relief, and then there was an awful bit where they have to push on your stomach to get the excess blood out.
