Sauti Sol guitarist Polycarp Otieno and his wife Lady Mandy have opened up on the story of their delivery process. In a recent episode of 'Sol Generation', on showmax, the two lovebirds took their fans through Lady Mandy's delivery choices regarding home birth process.


"I remember Mandy mentioning about someone asking about home births and that there were midwives around the country," stated Polycarp 


To Lady Mandy, this is what she had to say on the issue.

"It felt like it was just the right thing. I wanted to allow my body to do what it is meant to do without interference."


"We had the classes, and that helped us so much. I learnt very quickly but I did not know how to breathe. Two weeks passed, and our midwife tells us we need to be induced into labour naturally."


"What sealed it for me is that I have had to make decisions that are for the best interest of my child by taking care of myself because I am growing a human being inside me."


Adding,


"The moment the midwife said she could see the head of the baby. I think that was the magical word I have ever heard. Coz I knew finally, this is our end."" The plan was never to give birth in the bedroom in the first place but we did it from there. No word in the whole world can ever explain labour," 


According to medics, one can have a home birth when her condition and baby are well.
