Terre’blanche and his wife Coralie were waiting in anticipation for the arrival of little Lylah, expected in the next few weeks. 

Terre’blache said in an ideal world the family wanted a waterbirth, yet one thing led to another, his wife’s contractions became stronger and more regular, and the midwife did not arrive.

The musician explained the level of complete panic that ensued, moments before the birth.

Things escalated pretty quickly, so quickly in fact, that Jacques and his mother-in-law had to bring Lylah into the world. 

Listen to the full conversation here.  

Jacques wrote a song for his daughter a few days before she was born.
