Riley didn’t “wake up for a week” after his birth, prompting Meghan Trainor to boldly talk about the “traumatic” experience she went through.
The “All About That Bass” singer, 28, and her husband Daryl Sabara, 30, had their first child through C-section in February 2021, and the singer claimed she felt like she was held responsible when Riley decided to sleep all the time. She continued by saying that she had grown impatient with her nurses’ lack of responses.
“They were like, ‘Sometimes it happens,’ and then some nurses were like, ‘Well, it’s because you’re on antidepressants.’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah, but I’ve been told by others that it’s not that.’
“It was just really frustrating not having an answer. Not having answers for why my kid didn’t wake up for a week was very frustrating,” Meghan uncovered in an interview with People.
Prior to birth, Riley was in the breech position, and Meghan previously acknowledged Riley had “breathing issues.” She claimed that when he didn’t cry right away, she became anxious.
Relaying her experience on the Today show, she said: “It was one of those horror stories where he didn’t cry. He didn’t make noise when he came out. I was like, ‘Why isn’t he crying?'”
As soon as possible, her kid was taken to the neonatal intensive care unit so that he could be tube-fed.
