LAKE BELLS OPENS UP ABOUT HOME BIRTH: Lake Bell is opening up about the “mayhem” of her home birth with son Ozgood (“Ozzy”) in 2017. The 40-year-old told Dax Shepard on his “Armchair Expert” podcast that it was her second home birth with husband Scott Campbell. “We had two home births. The first was with daughter Nova in Brooklyn. I felt very empowered … the home birth was this amazing primal bonding,” the mother of two said. “When my daughter came out, she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck, and it was very scary. She was on my chest and she wasn’t breathing. The midwife gave her three lifesaving breaths on my chest and my husband was there. She came to life and we saw it.” But the second, at their home in L.A., didn’t go as well. I was huge, he was 11 lbs. The same thing happened, I was at home and he had the cord wrapped around and he was on my chest,” Bell shared. “He was not coming to. Now you’re in really f—ing life and death. Your child is there and the entire room is trying to resuscitate him and they can’t. The paramedics are on their way, he’s still there. This person you don’t know.” Bell continued, “The paramedics come in, the cord is still on so he has oxygen through my blood. They cut the cord and Scott ran out half-naked with their son and I was naked after my seven hours of laboring.” She said that despite being told he wouldn’t “walk or talk” after going so long without oxygen, Ozzy is thriving and healthy.
