Amber Rose Is Planning a Magical Water Birth

This Just In 13

Wiz Khalifa and Amber RoseIf a couple has ever loved being pregnant, it's Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa. Wiz even recently said he wishes Amber could "stay pregnant forever." That's a little much, but the point is they've enjoyed every minute of this special time.

But it's quickly coming to an end, and they recently shared their due date. Amber told MTV last night at the Grammys that she's due on February 24. "But you know, babies can come a week before, a week after. You never know. So we got a couple weeks left."

Regardless, they're all prepared for the big day. They have done their research and have a beautiful birth plan in place.

They say they were inspired after watching Ricky Lake's documentary, The Business of Being Born. Amber recently tweeted: “Thx @RickiLake 4 making ‘The Business of Being Born’ it changed my life & I’m looking forward 2 my home water birth wish me luck!”

So yes, it's going to be a water birth for the little guy. In a recent radio interview, Wiz laid out how they envision the birth:

We gonna have a midwife and a doula at the crib, and she’s gonna be in a pool, and it’s gonna be like a relaxing environment, and when she’s ready she’s gonna tell me when to stick my hands down there and I’m gonna pull the baby out.

It sounds lovely. I've always been intrigued by water births and really wanted to have one, but an emergency premature delivery the first time around pretty well thwarted those plans. But I think there's something so soothing about a baby being born into water, and I imagine that somehow the mother's pain is lessened that way. Which hopefully is the case for Amber, because she's also not planning on using any pain medications.

Let's hope all goes according to plan for them. If it does, it sounds like it will be a magical entrance in the world for their baby boy.

Would you want/have you had a water birth?

My son was born in the water at home. I'm pregnant again and planning a similar experience.

Two water births, two hospital births. I'll take my water deliveries any day, pain and all, over an epidural in the hospital. Same Doula and Midwife for both my water births, one at a birthing center, one at my home (in the laundry room).

I am hoping to have a waterbirth this time around! We will see. This is number six, so maybe I will finally get to experience that.

Homebirth with my first, A home waterbirth with my second, amazing, wouldn't have done it any other way

Does the water help take away some of the pain?  Can the water be warm?  I was induced with lots of meds due to medical reasons but if I have another I would choose a water birth at a birthing center.

Water birth with number one daughter at a birth center, water birth with number two daughter at home, wouldn't have it any other way. It is such a natural way to deliver, from water to water.

Water birth in the hospital with my second. Even if you don't actually deliver in the water, laboring in the warm water is nice.

I'd like to know exactly why water births are easier... I'd imagine the gravity is lessened so it doesn't help the baby come out, does the baby just float out? I suppose I need to do more research on the topic

I'd love a water birth. If there are no complications with the next pregnancy that is what I want to try.

There is much research about he benefits of laboring in warm water (less stress on baby, lower blood pressure and stress hormones for mom, fewer complications, and most of all LESS PAIN!).  I still rmeember getting out of the water briefly and how intense the pain was.  I headed right back in and when my hubby asked, "Are you sure you want to get back in the water?"  I snapped, "DON'T ask STUPID questions!"  LOL


Waterbirth is AWESOME!
