Recalling how her water did not break even after she dilated from two to eight inches in about an hour, Rumer shared in a June episode of the Informed Pregnancy podcast, “I reached my finger up there, and I’m feeling and it was crazy. I could totally feel this little bag—it feels like a water balloon, but with a bit tougher skin.”
Under her midwife’s instructions, Rumer said she “popped it” during a contraction, adding that there’s even a picture to commemorate the moment.
“I think there’s a photo of me and I just have this look of shock and surprise on my face,” she shared, adding that giving birth was “the wildest thing.”
As she described of the experience, “The most ecstatic, joyful moment of my entire life.”
