As Kailyn Lowry prepares to give birth to her fourth child amid her high risk pregnancy, she is opening up to fans about her previous pregnancy experiences. The “Teen Mom” star held an Instagram Q&A recently, and was asked a variety of questions about motherhood.
One person inquired about whether or not she’s ever had an “unmedicated” child birth. Lowry revealed that she had, and that it was very different from a medicated birth.
“I have! And I’m totally for whatever the mother and their caregivers decide. But I will say my unmedicated birth made me feel like superwoman. It was incredible to feel such [a] difference compared to medicated,” Lowry said.
The reality TV personality went on to say that Lux, the two-year-old she shares with Chris Lopez, was both her most difficult pregnancy but also her easiest birth. “As difficult as the pregnancy was, Lux labor & delivery was the best,” she wrote.
Lowry was later asked what the hardest part of adding a fourth child to the mix is going to be.
“Time management. Making sure I get everyone where they need to be on time, making sure I spend quality time with each of them, still having a minute to myself to recharge and fill my cup so I can continue to fill their cups,” she responded.
Lowry also revealed this week that she is not going to let Lopez, the baby’s father, be present in the delivery room during the birth.
She explained that she made the decision for her mental wellbeing, and also for the sake of the kids.
“My mental health and CONSISTENCY in my sons’ lives are more important than he said/she said,” she wrote. “As their mother, I know in my heart I’m doing what I believe to be best. I’m sorry if everyone disagrees. … Why would I make the call to someone who has not been helpful, consistent, empathetic or compassionate for the entire 9 months? Says he doesn’t care but thinks he should be included in the birth? Make it make sense.”
During her “Coffee Convos” podcast earlier in the week, Lowry revealed that she is going to have no more than six kids. Her forthcoming child will be her fourth. Lowry said that she has always wanted to have a big family.
She shares 2-year-old Lux with Lopez and is also mother to sons Isaac, 10, and Lincoln, 6, whom she shares with exes Jo Rivera and Javi Marroquin.
