Megan Fox Bailed On That Drug-Free Labor Right Quick

Those who have attempted the heavy weight title of drug-free labor can look upon Megan Fox‘s birthing story with empathy. The new mother of 10-week-old Noah Shannon had planned to go to the delivery room without any pain relief. But her pain threshold had other plans. Happens to the best of us, Fox.

People magazine reports that Megan felt that first contraction and quickly reconsidered her au natural birthing plan. A harpoon-like pain right through your lady business will do that:

“And I thought I was gonna be really tough and make it, I was going to labor to eight centimeters … but the first contraction I got was horrific!”

Before even getting to the hospital, Megan was telling husband Brian Austin Green that an epidural would definitely be in order and STAT:

“I was screaming for an epidural when [Brian] was driving me to the hospital because my water broke on its own and immediately — it was level orange pain alert,” she recalls.

Let it also be known that a little hair blow-drying also ensued before the Fox-Greens took off for the hospital, as the actress didn’t want to be holed up in the maternity ward with wet hair. Definitely a discomfort you don’t want to have among all the scratchy towels.

      they’ll take any cheap shot they can for a few clicks. This site isn’t exactly a pillar of objective news, lmao

    you dont really feel contracts in your lady business….its your abdomen.

      also, i have had a drug free labor and dont look on her story with “empathy’. sorry

    • Once upon a time

      And can we stop saying ‘lady business’ (or lady parts, lady garden, lady box, etc)? We’re all adults. It’s a vagina.

    • k

      agreed. i only said lady business because the author did, i was quoting.

      I’d guess it depends on the individual. I felt mine more in my lower back than my abdomen, just like when I get period pain only it was about 10x better to labour than menstruate. There was definitely some pressure in my vaginal area too, not pain but I could feel something all the same.

    Who cares if she had an epidural or not? She had a plan it didn’t work. All these “judge mom’s less” articles on this site and then you write a snarky article about a woman you don’t know admitting her plans went out the window with her kid like every other mother on the planet. I used to really enjoy the articles posted on here, now it’s like how many inflammatory headlines and snarky articles can I write for clicks? For shame.
