Audrina Patridge: Music got me through my C-section
Audrina Patridge was "scared" of having a Cesarean section.
The former 'Hills' star was nervous about having to go under the knife because daughter Kirra Max - who was born in June - was not in the right position for her to give birth naturally, so asked doctors to turn her music up loud to distract her from what was happening.
She told People magazine: "I had the doctors turn up the music in the delivery room so I wouldn't focus on what was happening. I was kind of scared and Corey (Bohan, her fiancé) just kept talking to me. I was scared to have a C-section.
"She 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. I waited until the very end of my pregnancy."
The 31-year-old television personality felt a connection with her baby girl "instantly", but she still "can't believe" that the 11-week-old bundle of joy is hers.
She said: "It was instant. It was so natural. Every day I look at her and I can't believe she's mine. She's so cute, it melts my heart."
And the 'Sorority Row' star admitted that although she struggled during the first month of motherhood, she wouldn't change it for the world.
She said: "If I'm being completely honest, the first month of no sleep, C-section recovery, unpacking, and getting back into the swing of things was pretty gruelling. But, at the end of the day, all I had to do was take one look at Kirra and none of that mattered anymore."
