Gisele Bundchen about Her Bath Tub Delivery
The supermodel Gisele Bundchen became a mom last year (December, 7). She prepared a lot for the delivery and she did her best when giving birth at her home surrounded by her mother, sport star husband Tom Brady and a midwife by her side.
Four months after giving birth to son Benjamin, she has opened up about the eight-hour birth – saying:
“My delivery was in a bath tub, in water,’ said the 29-year-old ‘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 yoga and meditation, so I managed to have a very tranquil birth at home.”
Giving exclusive to Brazilian TV channel Fantasticoshe said:
“It didn’t hurt in the slightest. The whole time my mind was focused in each contraction on the thought ‘my baby is closer to coming out’. It wasn’t like ‘this is so painful’. So I transformed that intense feeling into a hope of seeing him.”
Bundchen also says her son didn’t cry after being born and rested in her lap for a long time.
“It’s wonderful,” she said. “Never in my life I thought I could love like this. You hear people talking about it, but you don’t know until it happens to you. I couldn’t be happier.”
Benjamin is Gisele’s first child Tom’s second as he already has a 2-year-old son, Jack, with actress Bridget Moynahan.
