Selling Sunset's Christine Quinn reveals she and her baby almost DIED in emergency c-section during 'traumatic' birth07/16/2021
CHRISTINE Quinn nearly DIED during her emergency c-section in May as she finally opened up about her "traumatic" childbirth.
The Selling Sunset star welcomed her son Christian on May 15th after a terrifying hospital experience.
Christine, 32, opened up about the "excruciating pain" she felt while delivering her son in an "emergency" procedure.
The reality star took to Instagram to share a few new photos with her newborn, as she explained the "trauma" of that day.
The TV personality wore silky Louis Vuitton pajamas as she posed with her baby and husband, both named Christian.
"Happy 2 month birthday to my sweet little baby! Two months ago today, you made an extremely dramatic entrance, just like your mommy. (Except you were very early, and I am always late)," she joked.
"Reliving the trauma on Selling Sunset about my birth experience, was one of the most difficult things I have ever done; let alone allowing these very raw, personal moments of my life captured on camera," Christine confessed.
"I am not often publicly vulnerable, as I feel the responsibility to put on a brave face, despite still feeling at the time hopeless, terrified, and to this day traumatized. Both myself, and baby Christian are lucky to be alive," the new mom admitted.
The Netflix star then explained how after her water broke, she was "rushed to the hospital already 9cm dilated."
"Hyperventilating from the excruciating pain, I was immediately rushed in to an emergency crash C-section due to both our heart rates instantly plummeting," she disclosed.
"Baby C umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck. Baby C was seconds away from not making it," Christine explained, adding that the "surgeons didn’t even have time to count their tools before stitching me up as I was flatlining."
The model continued on to say that the doctors had to run her "through the X-ray machine immediately after surgery" to ensure there were no "remaining tools" left in her body.
"I am so grateful for the doctors and surgeons that saved BOTH of us. I thank God everyday for my blessings, and my miracle baby," she gushed.
Christine told her followers to "always remember life is too short and grudges are a waste of perfect happiness. Let go of what you can, and take chances.
"Give everything and have no regrets. Life is too short to be unhappy," she urged.
The newlywed and her husband Christian Richard welcomed their child on May 15th, a son named Christian Georges Dumontet.
The blonde beauty announced his arrival with a sentimental post reading: "Baby C is more precious than I could have ever imagined.
“Nine months seems like a lifetime to wait to meet someone. It is the most incredible feeling to know that you have created life.
“My protective mama bear mentality is stronger than ever. My sole job is to protect him, to love him, and to raise him."
Christine celebrated the news of her pregnancy with a stunning Playboy maternity photoshoot.
The TV star graced the cover of Playboy South Africa nearly nude while draped in fringe and billowing fabrics.
