Iya Villania shares recent birthing experience amid COVID-19 on their family vlog

Iya Villania  detailed experience giving birth to Baby Alana on the latest episode of their vlog "Life with the Arellanos."

Posting a teaser video on Instagram, Iya said she decided to share her journey in celebration of their baby girl's 2nd week into this world, and to give faith to those who are yet to give birth amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

"I thought it would be nice to share what D-day was like for me even in the middle of this pandemic," she wrote.

"I know mamas giving birth during this time must be scared but hope this will ease you up a bit. Times may be scary but have faith and remember the beauty of what you’re about to go thru," she added.



The video started with Iya having contractions at home at past 3 in the morning.

At the hospital, she was quickly wheeled to the delivery suite, the same place where she gave birth to Primo and Leon.

"So for my past deliveries normally naglalakad lang ako papuntang delivery suite. I'm not sure why this time I have to be wheeled. Payag naman ako," she narrated.

At around 7 in the morning, Iya gave birth after a couple of pushes, and to her surprise, she welcomed a baby girl.

"It's a girl. I thought it was a boy. Oh my gosh I thought it was a boy. Oh my gosh wala akong gamit ng girl. I can't believe I have a girl yay!"

Drew who wasn't allowed to be inside the delivery suite, waited in their room.

At the latter part of the video, Iya said she knew how people might think she made it look so easy but she said this time her delivery was tough.

"It's so tough and it's the most uncomfortable feeling," Iya said.

"Everyone was like, 'ang bilis. You make it look so easy,' because of my energy pero alam mo yung feeling after workout when we're just high and got all the energy that's how I feel after delivery," she said.

She also showed how her two boys Primo and Leon reacted when they found out they were having a sister.
