Why Lala went into labor early
Lala’s early labor may have come to a shock to some fans. She had initially announced her pregnancy in September and revealed that she was expecting her baby in late April.
However, Lala learned of some complications during the early stages of of her pregnancy. She spoke on the journey the caption of one of her maternity shoot posts.
“From the time of my 20 week appointment, up until a couple weeks ago, the word ‘concern’ was thrown around a lot about the growth of my daughter. It wasn’t until recently that my doctors were feeling good about what they were seeing,” she wrote in the post.
After experiencing some bleeding, her doctor wanted to closely monitor her pregnancy as it developed. She later learned the placenta was maturing too fast. This pushed up the due date from April to March.
Fortunately, Lala and Ocean both experienced a healthy birth and seem to be doing well.
