Selling Sunset's Christine Quinn "lucky to be alive" after traumatic birth
"Both our heart rates instantly plummeting."
Selling Sunset star Christine Quinn has opened up about her birth experience. The mum admitted that she felt "hopeless, terrified, and to this day traumatised".
"Both myself, and baby Christian are lucky to be alive," the mum said.
Quinn explained that she was filming on the day her water broke. The Netflix star was rushed to the hospital when she was 9cm dilated.
"Hyperventilating from the excruciating pain, I was immediately rushed into an emergency crash C-section due to both our heart rates instantly plummeting. Baby C's umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck. Baby C was seconds away from not making it," she revealed.

"The surgeons didn’t even have time to count their tools before stitching me up as I was flatlining. They ran me through the X-ray machine immediately after surgery to ensure there was no remaining tools left in my body. I am so grateful for the doctors and surgeons that saved BOTH of us."
The mum added, "I thank God every day for my blessings and my miracle baby. Always remember life is too short and grudges are a waste of perfect happiness. Let go of what you can, and take chances. Give everything and have no regrets. Life is too short to be unhappy."
Christine gave birth to her baby boy in May of this year.
"I am beyond grateful to my husband, and to all the wonderful doctors and nurses who helped me. It was a little scary, but we are beyond grateful," she shared shortly after her son's arrival.
