Heartbreaking: the new mother confessed that she & # 39; failed & # 39; because she could not give birth to her daughter naturally. Instead, the newborn was born via the C-section
In a heartbreaking Instagram post that was shared on Thursday, Shawn talked about the birth and the feeling that she & # 39; failed & # 39; because she was unable to give birth to her daughter naturally.
& # 39; I entered with such a & # 39; n stubborn way of thinking that the only way I could bring our baby into the world was natural. No medicines, no intervention, & she wrote in the post, including a photo of herself holding her daughter in the hospital.
Shawn went on: & # 39; When I chose 14 hours to get an epidural, I felt guilty. When we were told 22 hours that I had to get a c-section, I felt that I had failed. & # 39;
However, the moment had become sweet for the new mother when she could hold her daughter in her arms for the first time.
& # 39; But after I held our dear girl in my arms and was told that everything went well and she had made it safe with us, I could have cared less & # 39 ;, she wrote and added: & # 39; My / our world has nothing to do with us anymore, but everything that has to do with it. It's all for her and I will always do anything for this girl that I love more than I could ever imagine. A love that nobody can ever prepare you for. & # 39;
Her post then turned into a loving message for Andrew, stating that he was always her & # 39; number one & # 39; would be.
& # 39; But she will now forever be OUR number one together & # 39 ;, Shawn wrote at the end of her post. & # 39; Thank you to the incredible doctors and nurses who gave birth to our baby girl safely and to the best husband / dad in the world for being there at every step. & # 39;
Have faith: their birth blog made the couple pray together before they left their home on October 28 to go to the hospital
Ready to rock: Shawn was excited in the beginning, but then the delivery became more difficult and it was later revealed that she needed a C-section
The couple also shared the first part of their birth blog on their shared YouTube channel, which showed that Shawn would be induced by her doctor on October 28.
At a certain point before they left for the hospital, the couple was filmed while they prayed together on their couch.
& # 39; You're going to break it, I'm not scared at all, & # 39; Andrew said in the video as he drove Shawn to the hospital.
They reserved a private room in the hospital with a private bathroom to give Shawn optimal privacy during delivery. But it turned out to be a more difficult birth than expected.
The video revealed that Shawn had problems with enough widening to give birth to the baby naturally. Then she finally got an epidural on hour 14 to tackle the contraction pain.
& # 39; I should be able to do it naturally, & # 39; she said to Andrew, clearly upset because she needed medication to get through the pain.
The delivery video was then interrupted to show Shawn in the hospital bed at 10 p.m. labor on October 29, with the couple hinting that the second part would come to viewers.
Bundle of joy! The couple announced for the first time that they welcomed a baby girl into their family on Monday after spending some days on social media
Welcome: they have already created an Instagram for their daughter under @theeastbaby. The account was then changed to @drewhazeleast after the news about the name disappeared
Love: Another image shared by the couple showed that Andrew kissed the forehead
Shawn and her husband got dark on social media from October 31, but it seems that they have become silent, not because the new mother gave birth, but because they were already enjoying quiet time with their newborn baby – because the baby girl became October 29 born.
Then in an Instagram post Monday it was revealed that they had a baby girl who joined their family.
Shawn wrote a heart-warming family snapshot and wrote: & You are our everything. Welcome to the world, baby girl. & # 39;
The couple's baby excitement is particularly joyful after they revealed that Shawn had had a miscarriage in 2017.
In October of that year, they shared a video on YouTube in which Shawn showed her positive pregnancy tests. But shortly after filming that segment, Shawn experienced bleeding and the couple went to the doctor.
Shawn heard she had a miscarriage.
& # 39; I already lost the pregnancy in one way or another. It's definitely not fun, guys, & she said. & # 39; Having a doctor confirm that we have a miscarriage does not feel right. I have cried enough today, I don't have to cry anymore. & # 39;
She said E! News this summer it was being pregnant again & # 39; a frightening experience & # 39 ;.
& # 39; As an athlete, we are both used to people who say: & # 39; Eat this, do that & # 39 ;, and you can solve it. With a baby, during a pregnancy, there is really nothing you can do except wait. So it was really scary for us and we just leaned on each other to pray through it. & # 39;
