Have you heard the phrase “too posh to push“? I beleive it started with none other than Victoria “Posh” Beckham who was rumoured to request a c-section before her due date so she doesn’t ruin her lady bits.
There are a lot of people — celebrities & real people who still fear vaginal childbirth even though it’s what it was built for and even more fear the idea of medication-free (or “natural” as some prefer to coin it) births.
If I could choose my ideal birth, I would love to have a natural, unmedicated one, but that’s out of my control. I am however not “too posh to push” and turns out there are plenty of celebrities who are not too posh too. Some went the route of home births and others had hospital births breaking the stereotype that celebs are too posh for childbirth.
