Congratulations are in order for R&B singer Summer Walker. Media Take Out has learned that the beautiful singer gave birth to twins on Saturday, at her home in Los Angeles.
Summer announced the birth of her children on social media – which was a complicated one.
Summer Walker was pregnant with twins, and decided to not only carry the children two weeks past her full pregnancy, but she decided to deliver the babies at home, instead of a hospital.
Twin pregnancies are considered high-risk, and doctors strongly advise women who are giving birth to twins to do so in a hospital, where specialists are there on hand, in the event something goes wrong.
Summer decided to buck the doctor’s advice, and give birth in her home- with NO doctor or nurse present.
Summer wrote, “I’m so proud of myself. Just sharing to inspire other women cause I know once you carry twins to almost 42 weeks especially with (one breech) people will try to steer you towards induction or c section (which there’s nothing wrong with these I just didn’t want it for myself).”
“You can do it, this was my second home birth all natural 7 hrs, no tearing & I couldn’t of done it without my spirit guides, Godparents, birth team, my elders, & the best dad doula ever Larry lol, he was so hands on the whole time I was really impressed, A it wasn’t easy but it gets done. lol both births I almost blacked out at the end but eating your placenta will definitely keep you above waters I have thin blood so I always end up going to the hospital bring myself back into good strength for them but as long as my kids stay at home untouched I’m good.”
