In mid-May, Fiona Erdmann will become a mother for the second time - two weeks before the expected date. In a question and answer session on social media, the model now speaks openly about the birth and reveals the biggest differences to the first birth.
Less than two weeks ago, Fiona Erdmann became a mother for the second time. A few months before his second birthday, son Leo now has a sister. On Instagram, the model is now answering some fan questions about the birth.
"The little mouse came exactly two weeks before the due date," said the former "Germany's next top model" participant in her Instagram story. "Unfortunately, I had a caesarean section. That was because the little mouse was in a breech position. I would have loved to have had a normal vaginal birth, but in the end the risk was too great for me. Mainly because the doctors and especially my gynecologist were so have little or no experience," the 33-year-old continues. "So my daughter's well-being came first for me. That's why I decided to have a caesarean section."
Since the model, who lives with friend Moe in Dubai, has undergone both a natural birth and a caesarean section, a follower would like to know what conclusion she draws from it. "I can definitely say in advance that the birth with Leo was nicer and much more emotional," she keeps her answer short, but promises to go into this topic in more detail at some point.
Someone else wants to know how she is doing with breastfeeding this time, because her son Leo had problems at the time. "The little princess is a very insatiable caterpillar. I'm glad that breastfeeding is going so well this time." Erdmann explains that it didn't really work for Leo: "The main reason was that he came four weeks early and then had jaundice. He was far too weak, and I let myself be talked into it at the time and then gave him powdered milk supplemented. After three months he no longer accepted my breast."
Despite a caesarean section, Fiona Erdmann was fit again very quickly. Many fans have probably wondered how this is possible. "After the third day I was able to do everything fairly normally again and I only had a little pain." The reason for this could be her genes, Erdmann believes, because it was the same with her mother. "And clearly my will also played a big role, I just don't like lying around." However, it's not something she would wholeheartedly recommend to others. According to Erdmann, every woman should find her own pace and not let herself be stressed.
The daughter's name is not yet known. Just a few days ago, Fiona Erdmann admitted that she couldn't quite agree on a name with her boyfriend and asked her followers for suggestions: "I'd like a name that isn't used often. Something Arabic or something that's not typically European," she wrote alongside a black-and-white photo of Moe and the baby, also on Instagram.
