Why New Mom Mandy Moore Felt Like She Was On Acid During Childbirth

From there, the Emmy nominee described a really “awful” ride to hospital, which was about 40 minutes away on bumpy roads. Her team made her a little bed in the back of Taylor’s car: “I was writhing around in pain.” 

On the way there, she decided her plan to stay unmedicated was going out the window. She told her hubby, “Taylor, I’m getting an epidural. I don’t want you to be mad at me but that’s what’s happening when we get to the hospital.”

They got settled around 4 a.m. in her room, but it took six more hours to get her dilated from 6 cm to 10 cm. Mandy said, “Labor was intense, it was grueling, it was harrowing.” (Her platelet levels ended up being too low to get an epidural).

The actress pushed for three hours until a doctor came in with a vacuum-like device and in one push, the baby was born.

They named him August, because that was the month they found out they were having a baby boy.

She described how all the “bada–” stuff her body is capable of “blows my mind.”
