Taiwanese singer Ella Chen may love being a mother but she is stopping at one. Calling her three-year-old son Daniel, “a blessing in more ways than one”, she revealed in an interview that her pregnancy and childbirth was so difficult, she has decided against having more kids.
During her pregnancy, the 38-year-old suffered from severe nausea and cramps. She also opted for a water birth and decided against getting an epidural, but 20 hours in the delivery suite later, her doctor informed her that her cervix was still too thick and that she had to have a natural birth instead. Immediately after she delivered Daniel, the baby was put on a respirator as he had choked on amniotic fluid and meconium, which worried Ella and her husband Alvin greatly.
