When celebrity mothers use HypnoBirthing in labor
Jessica Alba has spoken about using HypnoBirthing techniques when having her daughters Honor and Haven in 2008 and 2011 respectively. Describing it as “guided meditation”, she said: “I’m just concentrating on breathing and staying relaxed because it’s when you get tense that makes the whole labor worse and more painful.”
Gisele Bündchen is certainly a fan. Speaking about the birth of her first child, son Benjamin, in 2009, the model told a Brazilian TV show: “It wasn’t painful, not even a little bit. The whole time, my head was so focused – every contraction, the baby is closer, the baby is closer. So it wasn’t like, ‘Oh what pain.’ It was, ‘With every contraction, he is getting closer to me.'”
Gisele opted for HypnoBirthing over an epidural because, in her words: “I wanted to be conscious and present for what was happening. I didn’t want to be anaesthetised. I wanted to feel.”
Angelina Jolie allegedly used HypnoBirthing techniques when she gave birth via caesarean to her twins Vivienne and Knox. With Brad Pitt by her side, Angelina is rumored to have chanted and was put under a trance while her twins arrived into the world.
Kate Middleton is also rumored to be using this method for the birth of Prince George and Princess Charlotte. She has announced that she set to plan for a home birth with the third royal baby.
We wish her and her family a great and safe pregnancy and once again experience the birth she wishes for!
