Jordy opted for an elective c-section with her first baby due to a genetic narrow birth canal and not wanting to risk an emergency situation. She was planning on doing the same with her second baby, however her daughter had other plans and she went into spontaneous labor at 39 weeks, followed by an urgent, but not emergent, c-section. Jordy will also talk about the stresses of giving birth during the peak of the pandemic as her son was born in May 2020.
