Meghan Markle isn’t just bucking tradition when it comes to fashion; she’s also going her own way when it comes to giving birth.
Vanity Fair got the inside scoop on the Royal birth plans, and it looks like Meghan and Prince Harry are going a little New Age.
Using a mix of ancient and cutting age techniques, Meghan is reportedly planning a completely natural delivery!

The first secret? Acupuncture.
According to the outlet’s sources, the Duchess has employed celeb acupuncturist Ross Barr for her entire third trimester. An insider close to Barr tells them:
“Meghan has been having regular acupuncture sessions to help her unwind and relax. It’s brilliant for the blood circulation and boosting blood flow to the uterus. She plans to use acupuncture right up to her due date.”
The second secret? Hypnobirthing!
The relaxation technique involves the mother using music and visualization to essentially self-hypnotize herself into staying calm and feeling less pain — you know, instead of using drugs.
A friend of Meghan’s says:
“Meg wants a natural birth if she can have one. 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.”
Hey, whatever works! (But maybe keep the epidural on hand just in case? LOLz!)
What do YOU think, Perezcious moms? Do YOU know anyone who’s tried acupuncture or hypnobirthing for their pregnancy??
