Earlier we posted about Gisele Bundchen seeing a chiropractor through her pregnancy. This week she “felt no pain when delivering her new son, Benjamin. Bundchen, who is married to Tom Brady, 32, said giving birth in her bathtub at her Beacon Street penthouse ‘wasn’t painful, not even a little bit,’ ” says the BostonHerald.com
According to People.com, Bündchen – who had a water birth on Dec. 8 at the Boston condo she shares with her husband, quarterback Tom Brady, 32, – also didn’t use serious pain medication. “I wanted to be conscious and present for what was happening,” she says. “I didn’t want to be anesthetized. I wanted to feel.”
Her recovery was also remarkably quick. “The second day, I was walking, I was washing dishes, I was making pancakes in the kitchen,” she says with a laugh.
My thoughts: Having a great Doula/Midwife and chiropractor along the way can make childbirth way more positive. The documentary that is mentioned in the Boston Herald article is worth watching if you are pregnant to see a slightly different perspective.
