It’s been nearly two months since Melanie Fiona welcomed her son Cameron into the world and now the new mom is sharing with us her birthing experience. In a Youtube video titled, “It’s Time to Tell The Truth”, the singer reveals her birth story and her initial feelings on motherhood. Fiona also recounts what led up to her delivering her son via C-section.
“I was experiencing some swelling,” Melanie tells fans. “I had edema and when I got to the hospital I started swelling even more and they noticed that my blood pressure was going up…they were really really concerned for me and they started to run some tests, and as it turned out I developed preeclampsia during my labor which is very rare and very very scary.”
Although she dreaded the idea of having a C-section, Melanie finally agreed to the surgery after her blood pressure levels put her at risk of stroke. “My blood pressure at this point was skyrocketing, it was like 190 over 110, which is pre-stroke levels,” she says in the video. “It just came to a point where Jared had to come in one-on-one and look at me and take my hand and look me in my eyes and say, ‘I have to leave the hospital with the both of you’ and until that moment I had not recognized how real and severe my situation is.”
