Iskra Lawrence went through a trauma and it has taken a while to be back to normal physically and mentally post she gave birth for the first time.
The 29 yr old Brit model and her partner Phillip Payne welcomed their son on April 19th and months after that they have now spoken about the home-delivering process.
Speaking on this Iskra stated that: “I just had no idea how bad the contractions were,” on the “primal” experience in a new vlog, sharing photos from the birth to Instagram. “I imagined the ring of fire when the baby is crowning. I imagined, ‘Oh, that’s the really painful bit.’ But no — for me the contractions were worse, in a way, because they just felt never-ending.”
The mom for the first time went into 12 hrs of labor alongside side effects of “vomiting” and “diarrhea,” prior to her water broke and that time she had Payne and her family around and later got herself into the birthing tub to a sigh of relief.
Further, when her midwife found that Lawrence was not dilating after 7 cms she was pushed to “pull” more to bring it out.

The following part did not go as it was thought as the beauty bombshell had to do the “deepest squat I’ve ever done … and [Ellie] just yanked him out.”
