Brittany took to Instagram recently to answer some queries from fans about the labor and childbirth experience that she had. There were also questions relating to her general life and her mental health.
She started by explaining what the birth process was like for the older child, Sterling.
“Sterling (trying to remember) … Got induced at 39 weeks 4 Days. … Dr. Broke my water & started my pitocin @9am. … Got my epidural @3pm. …Was ready to push by 7pm … Push for 20min, and she was here,” Brittany said.

Naturally, she then moved on to talk about the birth of her second child. This was not as routine a procedure and one that could have ended in tragic circumstances.
“Bronze. … Got induced at 39 weeks 3 days. … Water partially broke that morning anyways. … By 12pm Dr. fully broke the rest of my water was already dilated to a 4 & started pitocin. … Got the epidural at 1:30ish. … Started pushing at 5pm. … Pushed for 7 min, and he was here. … His cord was wrapped around his neck 2 times, and thankfully didn’t effect anything, and he was fine,” she said.
Amid further questioning, she revealed that Bronze was not a planned pregnancy and he was actually conceived on their wedding night. Other details included the fact that Sterling is becoming a ‘daddy’s girl’.
