Kate Middleton Reveals an Interesting Birthing Technique She Tried with All of Her Kids
Childbirth is no easy feat, even for the future queen of England. Kate Middleton recently got candid about life after motherhood during a recent podcast.
The Duchess of Cambridge has gone through three childbirths in her lifetime so it’s safe to assume that she is an expert of sorts when it comes to all matters pregnancy.
It’s no secret that Kate suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum during all three of her pregnancies. The acute yet serious condition is a form of morning sickness that causes excessive vomiting and nausea during the initial months of the pregnancy.
Given her health complications, Kate turned to a unique birthing method to help ease the delivery process. Kate said during the podcast that being constantly sick during her pregnancy had a drastic effect on her mood.
Admittedly, the Duchess was cranky and unhappy so she went out on a hunt for something that would make her journey to motherhood easier. When she first heard about hypnobirthing, she instantly got interested in learning more about it.
While talking to Giovanna Fletcher, Kate said that to add to her growing list of health concerns, she was eating pretty unhealthily during all of her pregnancies, a coping mechanism she used to combat her morning sickness.
But thanks to hyperemesis, she was able to train her mind and her body to use the nutrients from her poor diet to grow new life. At the point, hypnobirthing was the only thing getting her through the toughest 9 months of her life.
Kate joined a hypnobirthing class during her third trimester which included various meditation and hypnosis techniques to help her relax and lose some of her nervousness before giving birth.
She loved hypnobirthing during her first pregnancy so much that she tried it again with both Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. In Middleton’s words, the classes have various levels of hypnosis, ranging from breathing practices to meditation.
Although William didn’t accompany her on her hypnobirthing journey, Kate said that it really helped her get control over her morning sickness and be more aware of her body at the time of labor.
Now Kate has taken it upon herself to help other women going through similar pregnancy complications and so far, the Duchess is doing a fantastic job!
