Marcia Cross, Jenny McCarthy, and Rosie O'Donnell on c-sections and witnessing birth
The View co-host Rosie O’Donnell, guest host Jenny McCarthy, and guest Marcia Cross discussed their experiences with c-sections this morning on the show. Marcia said,
Jenny agreed, saying, ‘It’s horrible, it’s horrible — it’s hard when they have you strapped down ’cause you’re like, ‘I just want to hold my baby!” Rosie shared, ‘[My wife] Kelli had one too [with their daughter Vivi] and she was in bed for a long time afterwards.’ Joy lightened the mood, saying, ‘But the babies probably look beautiful, because they don’t have to go through that tunnel — they don’t get mushed — their head squashed. They just come out — ‘Hi, I’m gorgeous!”
Rosie said, ‘I always thought, if you don’t believe in God, watch a baby get born — and it will change your perspective. It was really the most amazing thing I’ve ever witnessed in my life.’ Jenny agreed, saying, ‘Your heart — you feel it explode.’
About her twin daughters Eden and Savannah, Marcia said,
She shared the story again about how the girls’ got their names, and mentioned, ‘I don’t think Tom was crazy about Eden, but he went with it.’
Marcia also mentioned that she’s a fan of The View – she tapes it and watches it while she pumps her milk!
