Editor’s Note: Medical professionals caution against home births because of the risks involved. A hospital is the safest setting for childbirth, especially when a life-threatening complication develops, which can happen without warning. Women have the right to make an informed decision about where they prefer to deliver, but always consult a doctor to understand the risks. (Click here to know more about home births.)
According to a report by GMA News, the couple welcomed their son on Monday, July 6, 2020. The two have yet to make an announcement on their social media accounts about the birth, including the name of their baby.
In her latest Instagram post two days ago, the 27-year-old actress shared that she is already at 39 weeks and preparing for labor by doing pre-natal exercises.
Max likely had a water birth at home. Back in May, she said in an interview with 24 Oras that her doctor had already given her the go-signal for it. And in an interview with Preview.ph in June, Max explained it was because she was really worried about giving birth in the hospital due to the COVID-19 pandemic.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
“When COVID-19 spread, I just felt like I personally wouldn’t be comfortable giving birth in a hospital, especially now that you can’t have a companion in the delivery room,” she tells Preview.ph. “That’s when I did my research, watched documentaries, and asked questions so I could figure out what my other options were.”
While medical professionals caution against at-home water births, Max made the necessary preparations, like attending online birth classes with Pancho and readying the equipment and medicines, to ensure that she and her baby would be as safe as possible. She would also have a doula and midwife to assist in the birth. Most importantly, she feels assured because Pancho is a registered nurse and has supported her every step of the way.
“I feel like it will be an intimate, amazing experience, and I’m happy knowing that I’ll be relaxed at home and in control of my body and how I choose to give birth,” she tells Preview.ph.
Congratulations to the couple!
