Saturday, June 22, 2013
Pink and husband Carey Hart thought they had it all planned out when it came to welcoming their first child. “We watched Ricki Lake‘s documentary The Business of Being Born early on. It was so enlightening and empowering,” the new mom tells PEOPLE. “We took all kinds of classes and decided to work with midwives at The Sanctuary …
I was really looking forward to the whole rite of passage — giving birth perfectly present, unmedicated, in the way nature intended.” However, that was before daughter Willow Sage made her own agenda known, arriving on June 2 via a Cesarean section following two nights of labor. “She was in the frank breech position, which is head up with her legs up by her head in a pike position. We tried everything to turn her around,” Pink, 31, reveals.
The willow is my favorite tree. I grew up near one. It’s the most flexible tree in nature and nothing can break it — no wind, no elements,” she explains. “It can bend and withstand anything. I love that sentiment. I want that for her.” “Sage is cleansing and sacred,” the Grammy-winner continues. “And it sounded great together. It doesn’t hurt that her last name is Hart — flexible cleansed heart.”
Too. Freakin’. Cute. Willow Sage is a very lucky little girl to have such cool parents. You can read the rest of P!nk‘s account of the first days with Willow HERE. It’s a really adorable read. Love :D
