WATCH: Iya Villania shares 'unmedicated' birth process with son Astro

Iya Villania finally shared the story behind her "unmedicated" birth process with son Astro Phoenix whom they welcomed last month.

In a vlog they posted on their YouTube channel "Life with the Arellanos", the TV host showed clips from when she gave birth to their baby boy with husband Drew Arellano, her first experience with natural birth out of her four deliveries.

 

 

According to Iya, her fourth delivery will always be "extra special" for her since it reminded her of her faith in God when she had already "given up" due to the pain brought by the process without having an epidural.

"I’ve always wanted to experience a natural birth but the pain would get overwhelming and I’d give up and ask for the drugs. For this particular delivery, I was praying for His strength and courage every single morning hoping I’d finally get to experience it since we feel this will be our last pregnancy, hence also my last chance to experience this," she revealed.

The mom of four then went on to detail how the labor was very different from her past deliveries. The progress was relatively much slower, that she reached a point where she already requested for her anaesthesiologist to help ease the pain.

However, Iya said "God just took over" at that point and everything "went into hyper drive." Astro was out by 4:39 PM and she had finally achieved her "dream unmedicated birthing experience".

"It was such an amazing moment! And from what I imagined to be a traumatic experience, I understand now why mothers still choose to do it again!" she added.
