The new mom recalled rushing back to the hospital after she missed her night pumping schedule. The incident caused her milk ducts to be clogged while undergoing a 39-degree Celsius (102-degree Fahrenheit) fever.
She also revealed that she has yet to change the baby’s diaper after hiring a nanny to watch over her baby while she works to provide for her family. The child’s name or gender was not revealed, but the child was referred to as her “son” by one of her co-hosts.
In the latter part of the episode, Rasif gave her three other co-hosts some of her breast milk which she had pumped earlier that day.
Co-host Dew noted that Rasif’s milk “tastes like water,” while her co-host named John described the liquid as having a rubber-like aftertaste. Saffron, on the other hand, said it tasted similar to Marigold milk.
