Real Housewives of Orange County fans watched Meghan King Edmonds undergo IVF procedures to conceive with often-absent husband Jim — but sadly, even after her daughter Aspen's birth, the star's baby drama isn't over. Click through these slides to get the latest.
Meghan, 32, gave birth to Aspen on November 24, but adjusting to life with her baby girl hasn't been so easy.
"When she was born, I noticed pretty much right away that her head was a little misshaped, and my pediatrician said it happens sometimes when they come through the birth canal, so just rotate her when she sleeps," the reality star told The Daily Dish.
"She had kind of a tight neck, so I had to do physical therapy with her, stretches," she explained. "Well then as she got a little bit older, I noticed her head was improving, but it was still not great. So at that point that was when my doctor recommended that if I wanted to I could take her to a helmet place."
She was told her baby girl would have to wear a helmet for six weeks, but that wasn't enough.
"Sure enough even with the improvements she had had with her head, it wasn't perfectly shaped," Meghan said. "It was kind of flat on one side and sticking out more in the front of her head."
Meghan added Aspen's health scare may have started during her pregnancy, saying: "The helmet place was asking all these questions about like how was she in the womb and my pregnancy. Well, it turns out that they see a lot of babies like Aspen with their heads like that when the mom is really small and has a small pelvis. And Aspen was so far down low when I was pregnant that she formed to the shape of my pelvis. And it makes sense cause when I did the 3-D ultrasound, they were never able to see her face cause she was so low so I never got to see her."
Meghan concluded Aspen is doing great with the helmet now, but she didn't comment on her marriage.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Meghan slammed her husband, Jim, 46, for being "distant" during her pregnancy. He was noticeably absent on RHOC and even skipped her baby shower.
Now, it appears their relationship could be on the mend, as Jim frequently posts photos of Aspen and Meghan on social media.
