Rumer Willis Reveals She Broke Her Own Water While Welcoming Baby Girl

Rumer Willis wanted to keep her body in tune as she welcomed her daughter.

The 34-year-old new mom talked about how she gave birth at home with the help of a doula, her partner Derek Richard Thomas, her mother Demi Moore, and her siblings Tallulah Willis and Scout LaRue Willis. She appeared on the Informed Pregnancy podcast in two parts.Explaining that she moved quickly through labor, the Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood actress said she “dilated from 2 to 8 inches in about an hour,” during which her water did not break.

After moving into the bathtub with an urge to push, her doula felt the water still intact.”She was checking me and felt my water bag bulging, but still not popping, which was wild. And so, I was like, ‘Well, should we break it?'” “‘She goes, ‘Well, you can.’ I’m like, ‘What?’ I was like, ‘Are you serious?'” And then, she broke her own water. “I reached my finger up there, and I’m feeling and it was crazy. I could totally feel this little bag — it feels like a water balloon, but with a bit tougher skin.”

Rumer was instructed to push on the bag during her next contraction.

“She just said, ‘Okay. On the next contraction, just push against it with your finger,’ and I popped it. I think there’s a photo of me and I just have this look of shock and surprise on my face. Because it’s a different sensation when the water bag is pushing against your cervix to when the baby’s head is.” “It was like I pushed a little bit. Like, I pushed — well, I didn’t push a little bit, I pushed harder than I’ve ever probably, but it was literally like I pushed, her head was out. I pushed again and her whole body was out,” she recalled. “There was no pause. There was no pause in between. It wasn’t one of those moments where it was, ‘Oh, your head is out.'”

“My midwife and my partner caught her. It was the wildest thing. She had a cord wrapped around her neck, but it was also wrapped around her body in like almost like a prom sash,” she continued. “We had four hands under there, under the birth stool. I’m going, ‘Give me the baby. Give the baby.’ But then, as soon as they untangled her, she was in my arms,” the new mom said, calling the experience ” the most ecstatic, joyful moment of my entire life.” “My sister actually told me something later that I didn’t even realize I said. I looked at Louetta at one point, and I said, ‘I missed you so much.’ I thought that was so sweet because it truly was like this moment of, ‘Oh, yes! We’re back together.'”

“It’s like, ‘Oh, yes. This person who I’ve known and I’ve been waiting for forever, here you are.'”
