Jessica Alba and her Hypno Birth!
Just wanted to share a bit about this "little told" news that it IS possible to have a relaxed inspiring controlled birth. Jessica Alba took control of her babys birth via the Hyponobirthing Method. I have to say I had to read up on this subject a bit. All I know about the new phenom is thru my work. And since its a hospital and Very interventionally burdened..I only hear things like this. "LOL she's going to try this Hypnobirthing thing. LOL wait til the contractions hit her LOL". Rude huh? Ignorant too. But I keep my mouthie shut. I'm still new at this birthing job and I'm sucking in all the knowledge I can. This is my profession for the rest of my nursing career. But most woman today just don't seem to think it's possible to birth without an epidural. So to hear Jessica Alba's words about her soothing birth brought a smile to my heart. This is what she shared with OK magazine...
-Preparing for the birth of your first child can be nerve-wracking for any new mom, but for Jessica Alba and her husband Cash Warren, the birth of their daughter Honor Marie Warren on June 7 was anything but chaotic. "I didn't scream," Jessica tells OK! in an exclusive interview and photoshoot. "It was really Zen." And Cash could only marvel at his wife's quiet strength when she gave birth. "She didn't make a sound," he says. "It was amazing."
Here, the proud pair open their door exclusively to OK!, introducing the adorable Honor Marie Warren."It hasn't totally sunk in," Jessica reveals to OK!. "She dreams, she smiles, and coos and does all these things, but she hasn't seen enough of the world yet to understand any of that stuff. So I still feel like she's connected to the other world, or something. There's no other way to explain it. It's a miracle."
The Love Guru star tells OK! that she had natural birth. "The labor was more like meditation," she says. "I did yoga breathing. I was focused."
