On her Instagram Stories, Coleen Garcia recounted how she went through unmedicated water birth to give birth to her son Amari.
The actress-host revealed she and husband, Billy Crawford, were doing a photoshoot until her water broke.
“So while I was taking this photo, I was setting up the tripod, camera, etc,” she recalled. “My water was already breaking lol (but tuloy pa rin ang picture),”
After 4 hours of active labor, Amari was born at exactly 6:33 AM last Thursday, September 10.
“For a while there, towards the end, I was really regretting the decision to skip pain killers lol but I’m so happy I did it this way. No tearing thanks to the water! I loved the water,” she further narrated.
She also thanked her husband Billy who never left her side during the birthing process.
“[Billy], thanks for the massages and for being such a supportive husband! I appreciate you,” she told him.
Coleen adds that she will add more stories about how she gave birth to Amari very soon.
It could be recalled that it was yesterday late afternoon when Coleen announced the blissful news that she finally gave birth, sharing pictures of her on an inflatable pool, Amari in hand.
“There’s so much I wanna say, but for now, I just want to praise God for being so so good. Thank you, Lord, for our beautiful Amari,” she wrote on the caption.
It was last May when Coleen and Billy announced that they are expecting their first child, with the former being five months pregnant at the time.
A month later, they had a live, online gender reveal party on their social media platforms wherein they revealed that they are expecting a baby boy.
Billy and Coleen tied the knot last April 2018, after being engaged last December 2016.
