“Meg wants a natural birth if she can have one,” a source reportedly close to the couple told Vanity Fair. “Her mother is very into anything that is holistic and natural, and having been brought up with yoga and mindfulness, it’s all very much part of Meghan’s birth plan.”
The au naturel move is becoming more and more popular among pregnant women, who are opting for natural births involving midwives and doulas over drugs and doctors. Midwives are now present at over 13 percent of all births in the U.S., and the number of home births (and births in birthing centers) has jumped by 70 percent since 2004, according to data from the National Center for Health Statistics.
Harry and Meghan’s birth plan is right on trend. It reportedly involves a home birth and hypnobirthing—a meditative approach to giving birth that involves breathing and visualization techniques.
According to Vanity Fair, Megs has also been having regular acupuncture sessions to help her stay zen during her third trimester. “It’s brilliant for the blood circulation and boosting blood flow to the uterus,” a source close to celebrity acupuncturist Ross Barr (whom Meghan and Harry visited on the reg leading up to the royal wedding) told Vanity Fair. “She plans to use acupuncture right up to her due date.”
