Mandy Moore reveals unmedicated birth plan due to rare blood disorder

Mandy Moore has opened up about the rare blood disorder that is stopping her from having an epidural.

Moore has a disorder called Immune thrombocytopenia.

The This Is Us star told Today:

"My platelets are too low for an epidural. It was awful. But I can do it one more time. I can climb that mountain again."

She added, "I wish medication was an option — just the idea of it being on the table is so nice. But we'll just push forth like we did last time."

Moore reassured her followers that she is well and said her doctors are taking incredible care of her.

"I am fine. I just have to continue to get my blood checked — my platelet levels checked — throughout pregnancy.

"They're low, but they've always been low, but I'm all good. Everything's good."

The actress revealed she was pregnant with her second child in June.

She confirmed she is pregnant with another baby boy.

Alongside a photo of her son Gus wearing a 'big brother' t-shirt, the Tangled actress said:

"One incredibly seminal chapter of my life just ended and the next one, as a mother of two, is about to start… and are we ever so deeply grateful and excited.

"Baby Boy Goldsmith #2 coming this fall! Tour is gonna be slightly different than I expected but I can’t wait and Gus is gonna be the BEST big brother!!"
