Moore Details The Events That Lead Her To Becoming A Mother

Baby Goldsmith’s big brother’s arrival into the world was an incredibly personal experience for Moore.
From the moment she went into labor with Gus, the mom-to-be felt like she had a strong sense of control.
Last March, Moore detailed Gus’ arrival on the “Informed Pregnancy Podcast,” as per People.
Coping with the pain of labor felt like “Diving into this wave as it’s coming at me. It was crazy. I think that’s what was so wild to me about just the concept of labor. Trying to imagine what it would be beforehand, and then when you’re in the throes of it… I guess I’d taken all these classes and we talk about breathing and you talk about the techniques that your husband is going to help you with and the different tips and tricks.”
Moore put all of those ‘tips and tricks’ aside and took control when she was in the midst of giving birth to Gus.
“It was my own narrative,” she continued on the podcast. “my own story and everyone else was just in the background.”
Moore’s plan to deliver Gus during a home birth changed at the last second as birth experiences often do, and she was candid about embracing the sudden changes.
Moore had labored for three hours before her doctors noticed baby Gus’ heart rate was dropping.
“It all happened so quickly,” she said, of the development. “It was one second everything was fine, and then the next second it was like, this is happening. And literally I pushed harder than I had. And it went from no baby to a full body out in seconds,” she recalled of the moment Gus had come into the world.
In the moments following Gus’ birth, Moore described those first shared moments with her new son, saying, “I’ve never felt this kind of love. It was like the world stopped again, and you’re not aware of anything else that’s going on… you just have your baby on you. And I can’t imagine anything else mattering,” she explained.
Congratulations to Mandy Moore and Taylor Goldsmith on their second bundle of joy! We’re thrilled Moore will get to experience her elation about giving birth once again!
