Meghan King Edmonds Shares the Emotional First Moments of Her Baby Girl's Life
"Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words," the #RHOC new mom wrote.
It's been one week since Meghan King Edmonds became a mom, and already her Instagram is filled with adorable photos of daughter, Aspen King Edmonds. Meghan hasn't shied away from showing the most intimate parts of the birth, either.
She posted a photo of three generations of her family, including herself, her baby girl, and her mom, just moments after she gave birth on November 24. It looks like Meghan is overcome with emotion as she holds her baby girl in her arms, and her mother kisses her sweetly on her forehead.
The Real Housewives of Orange County mom previously revealed on Instagram that she went through a natural labor that lasted 22 hours when she gave birth to Aspen. "From the hours leading up to the birth I had the most incredible husband [Jim Edmonds], he didn't leave my side. I could not have labored naturally without him and my doula. Jimmy was a constant source of support through every contraction, each blood-curdling scream and each time I told him I thought I was dying and couldn't do it anymore. He ran baths, helped me walk, helped me breathe, held my hands, essentially endured the burden of my pain for all 22 hours," she captioned a cute pic of herself and her baby girl. "I feel like I worked out for a week straight and my throat hurts from yelling but I survived unscathed without so much as a tiny tear and now I feel like the strongest warrior on the planet."
Meghan has also let her Instagram followers into Aspen's first days at home, showing the "realness" as she cares for her first child.
Watch Meghan share more of the struggles and successes of her pregnancy journey, below.
