New mom Miranda Kerr has taken a bit of criticism lately for comments she made about “feeling like she was going to die” during childbirth. She opted to go the natural route, and even in her greatest moments of pain, she refused to have an epidural.
Miranda also said, “I had made the decision to not have any drugs, no epidural, nothing…Each to their own. I’m crazy for doing that!”
Honestly, I commend Miranda for being so open and honest about how hard labor was for her. Pain levels during childbirth are different for everyone, and judging from my experience delivering my son, I can see why she thought she was going to die. It really is excruciating, and there’s no reason to sugar coat it.
Miranda’s husband, Orlando Bloom, had almost as bad a time as she did during the birth of their son, Flynn, because he could not stand to watch her in agony. He was even ready to get an epidural himself!
Miranda reports that Orlando said, “Give me the epidural! Seriously, if you don’t want it I’ll take it because right now I’m dying watching you go through this pain.”
It is pretty cute that Orlando managed to keep his sense of humor during such a trying time. He’s got to be one of the most desirable new dads out there!
