Why is Mandy Moore unable to have an epidural birth?
The Candy singer Mandy Moore is ready to welcome her second baby boy but all in a natural way. She is unable to have a medicated birth for her and her husband Taylor Goldsmith’s child.
An epidural during childbirth might turn out to be hazardous both to the health of mother and son as she is diagnosed with ITP.
Mandy Moore revealed that she has an autoimmune disorder called immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). She has also welcomed her 17-month-old son, Gus, without medication due to the rare blood disorder condition.
“My platelets are too low for an epidural. It was awful. But I can do it one more time. I can climb that mountain again.”
She further interviewed that she has no option for medication as she said,
“I wish medication was an option — just the idea of it being on the table is so nice. But we’ll just push forth like we did last time.”
What is immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP)?
Immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is a blood disorder that results in a decrease in the number of blood platelets. It has severe effects in easy bruising, bleeding gums, and internal bleeding as doctors say,
“lead to easy or excessive bruising and bleeding. The bleeding results from unusually low levels of platelets — the cells that help blood clot.”
A pregnant woman with such ITP would have a high chance of bleeding. Regarding the update on the pregnancy condition of Moore who has been diagnosed with ITP she says,
“I am fine. I just have to continue to get my blood checked — my platelet levels checked — throughout pregnancy. They’re low, but they’ve always been low, But I’m all good. Everything’s good.”
