We totally had a chuckle when we read Danica’s hubby’s Facebook posts! He totally gave her props for opting to give birth without meds! Did you opt for an epidural?
When Danica McKellar, best known for her role as Winnie on The Wonder Years, gave birth to her first child, a son named Draco, on Sept. 7, she did it without pain medication! And her proud husband, Mike Verta, took to his Facebook page, to rave all about his wife’s natural child birth!
“Ladies, I’m not saying you’re ‘less than’ if you walk into the delivery room and ask for an entire pharmacy of drugs and an epidural,” he posted. “I’m just saying watching Danica go all cave-woman and do it without a single cc of help was pretty damn cool, that’s all.”
Danica reiterated her hubby’s post with a FB message of her own: “For those of you who follow Mike Verta’s page, you’ve already heard of the ‘cavewoman’ experience from his point of view — I did indeed go fully natural with the birth — no augmentation, no epidural, nada! It was the most incredible experience of my LIFE, and it’s hard to describe the feeling of empowerment that has come along with it. Easy? No. Worth it? YES.”
A big congrats goes out to the new parents and we think their support for one another is so sweet!
