Time magazine has shared the excerpt from the new book, which will be out on November 9.

Emily shared details of the moment her water broke, almost… midnight on Sunday, March 7, six days before her due date.

‘The heat flow between my legs interrupted my sleep and I sat up in bed. I threw off the covers to reveal a growing wet spot on the sheet,” she recalls.

When she told Sebastian what had happened, he prepared their things to go to the hospital while… she “worked on all fours” in the bathroom, quickly overtaken by pain.

“My body felt like it was bursting,” she wrote. “The pain was all-encompassing, rippling through my core and spreading to every corner of my being.

“The contractions came without interruption, and when one peaked, I felt seized by a sudden panic. I was desperate to make the pain stop, but I was stuck. I bit my teeth together.’

While it was certainly painful, it was also a terrifying moment, as Emily was concerned that she and the baby would make it.

“What would happen to my baby and me now?” she wrote. “Our lives were at stake, but there was nothing I could do to ensure our safety. Our survival depended on the mysterious mechanisms of my body.”

Emily tried to silence her mind, instead giving in to her body.

“I tried to fill my mind with emptiness. I let the contraction consume me,’ she said.

After a while, she decided she trusted her body, realizing that it was resilient and had already done so much during the pregnancy.

“It had protected my growing son for nine months and his heart kept beating as his whole, complicated self developed inside me. Now it opened, right on schedule,” she said.

The pain remained intense when she and Sebastian arrived at the hospital, and she described crawling through the lobby and being “twisted against the wall of the elevator.”

“I was in my body, a machine that viciously ripped through with no regard for anything or anyone,” she wrote.

She didn’t start pushing until after sunrise and when labor was underway she asked for a mirror so she could see the birth and delivery. and ‘witness his progress.’ They hung one above her.

Emily said that as she pushed, she… threw up and felt a stabbing pain through her pelvis and lower back.

Finally, in the mirror, she saw the top of her son’s head—and her own body, unrecognizable to herself.

“In the mirror above me, I no longer recognized my face: it was swollen and red, and the veins near my temple were pronounced and throbbing,” she wrote.

“My body was swollen and raw and unfamiliar. Everything had been transformed. My baby’s heartbeat crackled through the monitor.’

But it wasn’t over yet. Emily said she heard a doctor consider getting a vacuum cleaner, commenting that the baby was too big and Emily too small.

Luckily she managed to push him out, and suddenly he was lying on her chest as she sat dazed.

Emily has only shared a few photos of her son and even blurred his face in an early photo in April.

But she’s since warmed to sharing snaps of the seven-month-old and recently shared a series of them on Instagram.

But in June, Emily faced criticism from social media users after she shared a photo of her carrying the then three-month-old baby.

In some of the snapshots, she held Sylvester with one arm to her chest as she posed for the camera. The little boy’s head slumped to one side and his feet dangled.

A Twitter user shared a side-by-side photo of Emily carrying her child alongside a snapshot of her carrying a dog, asking, “Why is she holding little helpless creatures like a textbook?”

‘NO neck support lmfaooo wtf’ wrote one person, while someone else added ‘And no support for the doggy lol.’

“How can a mother hold her baby like that wtf?” asked another critic.

Some users suggested that she was holding her baby as an “accessory.”
