Maren Morris Reveals She Had An Emergency C-Section After 30-Hour Labor

Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd welcomed their beautiful baby boy on March 23, 2020.

Just a few days later, on Friday (March 27), Morris took to Instagram to get real about her delivery — and no, it wasn't glamorous!

The “Common” singer revealed in a lengthy Instagram post — that also featured a new photo of baby Hayes— she not only endured 30 hours of labor but needed to have an emergency C-section as well. 

“30 hours of labor ended with an emergency c-section... not what we planned but I learned pretty quickly that night that having a plan for bringing a human into the world is a fool’s errand. All that mattered was that he got here safely,” she wrote in her note.

Morris also took time to give a shoutout to the amazing nurses and doctors who helped her through her delivery: “The admiration we have for the doctors, nurses + healthcare professionals that took care of Hayes & me during our stay cannot be measured in this post. They risked their health every day to make sure ours was okay. I can’t think of anything more selfless than that.”

Morris touched on the fact that she was giving birth during a health crisis like the coronavirus pandemic was also not planned for and she explained how eerie it felt in the maternity ward.

“Having him in the middle of a global health crisis was also not in the baby prep books, but here we are. Holding him and healing my body in a maternity ward that’s eerily quiet from us not being allowed visitors or family at this time, but strangely serene. All we hear are monitors beeping and the coos of our infant son.”

To end her note, Morris gave gratitude to mothers all over the world for their strength during childbirth.“I can’t thank every single mother enough for going through what you’ve gone through because I had NO idea how hard it could be, and I’m a measly 4 days in. The world is changing before our eyes and so am I.”
