Mandy Moore is expecting a second child this fall. Again, she will have to go through childbirth without painkillers.

American actress and singer Mandy Moore (38) will have to go without painkillers when she gives birth to her second child. This is due to a rare condition called immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) from which the ‘This Is Us’ star suffers. Due to the disease, her blood platelet count is too low, making epidural anesthesia (EDA), which is common in births today, too risky. Moore explained this in an interview with the American site “Today Parents”.

Women with ITP are at an increased risk of bleeding heavily during childbirth. Epidural anesthesia would further increase the risk of blood loss. Moore had to endure the birth of her first child, son Gus, about 17 months ago without anesthesia and in great pain. “It was terrible,” she recalled in the post. “But I can do it again. I can still climb that mountain.”

The baby is expected in the fall

Still, she wishes medication “was at least an option – just the thought that it might be a possibility would be so nice. But we’ll do like last time,” the star looks bravely ahead of her.

Moore announced in June this year that she and her husband, musician Taylor Goldsmith (36), were expecting another child. Son number two is due in the fall. Moore was married to singer-songwriter Ryan Adams (47) from 2009 to 2016, and their marriage remained childless.
