Jessica Alba Talks About Labor; Recommends An Unusual Way To Keep Calm

Jessica AlbaCasual and very pregnant mom Jessica Alba remembers going in to labor the first time, and even offers some unusual advice to other expectant moms.

Remember back to when you were getting ready to have your first baby? I remember being worried my water would break in public or that I would lose it in the delivery room and not be able to push. Normal fears, right? Jessica had the same concerns.

The 30-year-old actress and mother to 2 year-old Honor Marie talked about how scary it was to go into labor the first time. She told Us Weekly: “I was freaked out going into it my first time going into labor. Like what if I panic? What if I just freak out and I don’t know what to do?”

To help her remain calm, Jessica recommends “hypnobirthing classes”…ever heard of them? I hadn’t, but apparently they’re getting more and more popular. Basically, it involves the use of hypnosis during childbirth.

Huh?

“It’s different for everyone, although I do recommend the hypnobirthing classes. I highly recommend it. It just makes you chill.”

Well, I guess it would be worth checking out! Maybe they can hypnotize you so that you can block out the pain, too!

Jessica also says that this second pregnancy is a little bit harder than the first. It is “…a little bit harder on the body because my daughter still wants to be picked up. Ever since my belly popped, she really is on me!”

I remember those days! It was like carrying two (or in my case three!) babies around!

So what do you think? Would you give hypnobirthing classes a shot if you were pregnant?
