Being a mother is a blessing, but it will never be easy. Although pregnancy and childbirth are events that are remembered with much love, sometimes they come with complications that put at risk the health of both the mother and the baby. But when they are overcome, a strong bond is created that reminds us of the joy of being alive.
Here are 5 celebrities who had complicated pregnancies and deliveries, but now have a beautiful family:
#1 Jessica Biel
Goin’ on tour. #MOTWTOUR
In 2015, Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake welcomed little Silas. The actress had planned to have a natural birth at home and everything was ready in her home to receive the new member of the family. But it did not go as expected and Jessica had to undergo an emergency cesarean. In addition to facing uncertainty, Jessica Biel is a defender of a lifestyle as natural as possible, so giving birth in a hospital and through a scalpel left her in shock.
#2 Kim Kardashian
Party of 5
When Kim Kardashian West carried little North in her womb, she suffered from a condition called preeclampsia, which is characterized by high blood pressure. For this reason, her delivery had to go ahead (to minimize the possible risks) and North was born safe and sound. At that time it was discovered that Kim's placenta was still stuck in his uterus, and her doctor had to put his arm to remove it. Despite this, a piece of placenta remained inside her and had to be removed with surgery.
Thanks to her doctors, Kim was able to conceive her second child, Saint. But in order not to risk her health again, Chicago (her third daughter) was born through surrogate motherhood.
#3 Serena Williams
Serena Williams has blood clot problems in her medical history. Her daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. was born from an emergency cesarean section after his heart rate dropped. Olympia arrived to the world without problems, but in the lungs of Serena several clots appeared that caused a cough that tore the wound of its caesarean section. Serena William is a great example of strength.
#4 Salma Hayek

Salma Hayek became the mother of her first and only daughter, Valentina Paloma Pinault, at 41 years old. During her pregnancy, she suffered from gestational diabetes. Even a woman who has never had diabetes could suffer from it and have a high blood glucose level. This disease is controlled with a healthy lifestyle and medical follow-up. But otherwise, it increases the possibility of preeclampsia or even becoming diabetic in the future.
#5 Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey is the mother of the Moroccan and Monroe twins, who were born through a cesarean in 2011. Mariah not only had two babies at the same time during her first pregnancy, she also faced gestational diabetes and preeclampsia. No doubt it was a high-risk pregnancy, but it ended in the best way.
