Things took a scary turn for Sadie Robertson while giving birth to her first baby.

It's been two months since the Duck Dynasty star welcomed daughter Honey James with Christian Huff, and now she's ready to tell the story of her baby girl's arrival. In the latest episode of the Whoa That's Good podcast, released on July 7, Robertson revealed Honey actually got "stuck" during delivery.

"All of a sudden I was pushed down on the bed, they pushed my mom, [Korie Robertson], out of the way and every nurse in the room was just over me, and they were pulling my legs and pushing my stomach as hard as they could," she said on the podcast. "I thought they cut me open because of how painful it was when they pressed on my stomach. Now I know they were pressing my pelvis bone to get her out because what happened was Honey got stuck. Her shoulder got stuck."

The Dancing With the Stars season 19 contestant continued describing the "scary" and "really dangerous" situation.


"In that moment, every second counts and they couldn't get her out for two minutes and 10 seconds," Robertson continued. "I knew something was wrong because of the pain, and the doctor [had] just told me, ‘Next push, she's here.'"

"The nurses said she really should not have been breathing on her own. They were about to take her to the NICU," she shared. "Her shoulder wasn't even broken, and they tried to break it to get her out. It was supposed to be, but it wasn't."

As Robertson recalled, the team of nurses thought baby Honey's shoulder would be dislocated. However, "It wasn't even dislocated," Robertson said. "They had three doctors check her shoulder because they were in disbelief. She never had to have any other care because she was so strong."

Robertson and Huff, who got married on Nov. 25, 2019, announced the arrival of their daughter in May. 

"We saw a million little miracles yesterday - the best one being this girl right here... Honey," Robertson wrote on Instagram at the time. "The pure goodness of God. story to come, but I'm way too occupied right now by cuteness. 5.11.21."
