Sam Pinto discusses pregnancy complications one month after giving birth

Sam Pinto, a month after giving birth to Mia, is now ready to share her birth story.

In a long social media post she shared the bumps that she experienced just moments before she went into labor.

First-time mom shared her experience and said that although she had a normal birth, there were some issues that could have prevented it.


Preeclampsia is a condition that occurs during pregnancy and causes high blood pressure.

"For some reason, I developed hypertension during pregnancy even though I believe that I am the most healthy I have ever been." She explained that it could be because my mom was pre-eclempsia.

A further problem was her 36-week-old baby and low placenta for a prolonged period.

Sam shared her excitement about Mia's birth as she grew closer to delivering the baby.

"I didn't know what I was in for because it's my first child. She said that she felt some strange throbbing, and didn't realize it was contractions.

After 16 hours of waiting, and only three pushes, baby Mia was finally born and Anthony Semerad cut the umbilical cord.

She said, "Everything about giving birth to a child is so intense. My body was made for this. We thank all the nurses and doctors, and we salute all the mommas.

On September 1, the actress gave birth to Mia Aya, her first child.
