Blac Chyna & Rob Kardashian are reportedly seriously considering having the birth of their baby girl filmed for a reality show! And while we know the Kardashians are used to putting their lives on display, is it SAFE to have a full camera crew in a delivery room? HollywoodLife.com learned EXCLUSIVELY if embarking on this wild endeavor poses any risks for mom OR baby!
In true Kardashian fashion, Blac Chyna, 28, and fiancé Rob Kardashian, 29, are reportedly planning on having a camera crew document the birth of their first child together. The two apparently want to show the birth on television for a reality TV baby special, and they want the camera crew INSIDE Blac’s delivery room during the big moment!
We couldn’t help but wonder though, is that safe? Or even allowed? HollywoodLife.com spoke to OB/GYN Dr. David Ghozland, M.D., who revealed that filming a birth is actually not super unusual, and ultimately, it’s up to the parents and the doctor to decide who should be in the delivery room. “Having a camera crew film the birth of a baby usually does not pose a risk to the mother,” Dr. Ghozland told us EXCLUSIVELY.
“However, depending on the high-risk nature of the delivery, camera crews are sometimes discouraged. High risk includes any complications during labor or any risk factors that might lead to a complicated delivery.” The doctor also made it clear that it’s also up to the doctor if a camera crew will be allowed inside the birthing room. “Some doctors are not comfortable with someone filming the delivery in the event that a bad outcome occurs.”
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Blac and Rob definitely want some key members in their delivery room as well. Some of those special individuals include “Amber Rose, Kim [Kardashian], and Kanye [West]… along with Blac’s mom Shalana,” a sourced revealed to us EXCLUSIVELY. But already that seems like quite a lot of people! David explained that typically the delivery room is kept pretty empty, but hospital staff could always be making an exception for Blac.
“The maximum number of people allowed in the delivery room is usually up to the parents, but hospitals try and limit it to a few and no more,” the doctor said. But of course after their daughter is born, Rob and Blac do plan on having tons of visitors! And according to TMZ, the couple will make a small fortune of “hundreds of thousands” of dollars if they allow cameras into the hospital room! So it looks like plan film-baby-Kardashian is most likely a go!
Tell us, HollywoodLifers — do you think Rob and Blac will end up filming their daughter’s birth for TV? Do you think filming’s a good idea?
