Audrina Patridge blasted rock music during scary C-section birth
Reality TV star Audrina Patridge turned up the volume on booming rock music to keep calm in the hospital during her Cesarean section birth.
The 31-year-old former The Hills star admits she was terrified in the delivery room back in June (16), as she prepared to give birth to baby girl Kirra Max, and she asked her fiance Corey Bohan to blast out her favourite rock songs to take her mind off her worst fears.
The rock therapy worked and she recalls Train's song Hey Soul Sister was on blast in the background when she finally became a mum.
"I had the doctors turn up the music in the delivery room so I wouldn’t focus on what was happening,” she recalls to People magazine. “I was kind of scared and Corey just kept talking to me.”
Audrina did everything in her power before her due date arrived to prevent having to undergo surgery to deliver her daughter, adding, “I was scared to have a C-section. She (baby Kirra) was breech. I tried everything to get her to flip. I went to acupuncture, I floated in the pool, I did front flips, I did handstands, I did everything you could imagine and nothing worked."
But she was surprised the operation turned out to be significantly less severe than she expected.
“(My fiance) Corey kept talking to me (in the delivery room)," she details. "And it wasn’t bad at all!”
And now Audrina is so grateful to be a parent, instantly falling in love with Kirra when she first held the tot in her arms, and her bond with the little girl continues to strengthen with each passing moment.
“Every day I look at her and I can’t believe she’s mine,” she gushes. “She’s so cute, it melts my heart.”
