As well as choosing a home birth, some celebrities opt for a birthing pool (or bath tub!) for labour. Take a look at which celebrity mums had a midwife-assisted water birth at home...
Supermodel Gisele Bundchen famously revealed she not only had a home birth and went drug-free with son Bejamin, but also had a water birth. The labour, according to Gisele, "didn't hurt in the slightest."
"My delivery was in a bath tub, in water. I wanted to have a home birth. I wanted to be very aware and present during the birth... I didn't want to be drugged up. So I did a lot of preparation, I did prenatal yoga and meditation, so I managed to have a very tranquil birth at home. The whole time my mind was focused in each contraction on the thought ‘my baby is closer to coming out'," Gisele said after the birth.
