Meghan Trainor is sharing her negative experience while her son was in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
Trainor spoke on her pregnancy and childbirth experience with son Riley, 16 months, whom she shares with her husband, Daryl Sabara, 30, in a new interview with Romper.
Meghan Trainor Allege Nurses Implied Her Antidepressants Led To Her Son Landing In NICU
Trainor, 28, explained that Riley spent some time in the NICU because he struggled to wake up to feed, something she revealed nurses insinuated was her fault.
“They kept asking me if I was on antidepressants during the pregnancy, and I was, but on the lowest dose possible, and all my doctors said it was safe and wouldn’t affect him,” she explained.
“It was really f—ed up. They had no name for what was wrong. He just wouldn’t wake up,” Trainor continued.
“They said, ‘It’s really up to Riley when he wants to wake up.’ I’d be like ‘Really? Can’t you just zap him and get him up?'”
Elsewhere in the interview, Trainor spoke about turning her attic into a schoolroom for Riley and the other children she and Sabara hope to have, revealing that they are ready to start trying for a second baby this fall.

“I would love twins,” she shared. “A two-for-one deal,” adding they want three or four kids in total.
“I want to hire a preschool teacher that will be able to teach emotions,” she said of how she imagines the homeschooling experience. “How to handle it when you want to freak out and scream, because they don’t usually do that.”
She explained her reasoning for homeschooling is partially due to her own experiences in school growing up as well as current events.
“Not to get dark here, but [in regular schools, you have to worry about] guns and all that stuff. I don’t really want to send my kids somewhere where I’m just like, ‘Hope to see you later!’ It’s horrible,” she shared.
“Everyone tells me, ‘You can’t keep your kid in a bubble,’ and I’m like, ‘Oh, but I can.'”
Trainor spoke with the outlet in June about how her songwriting and recording process has shifted since becoming a mom.

“The schedule’s different because I told everyone, ‘Get at my house at 11 a.m. and get out by 6 p.m,'” she shared, adding her crew was also okay with her taking “baby breaks.”
“I could be like, ‘Be right back, guys. I’m going to go give my kid a bath.’ I’m lucky to have my studio right here in my house. A lot of people are like, ‘I don’t like work at home.’ I love it; I don’t want to go anywhere!”
“The luxury of that was significant, and I’m lucky enough that I can work from home and see my baby. It made me really just respect mamas who work even more. I’m lucky that I get to see him.”
