Childbirth can be a scary prospect for many first-time moms-to-be, but Gossip Girl star Kelly Rutherford has a few tips for those whose delivery dates are looming.
The 41-year-old mom-of-two recommends “meditating, getting quiet and talking to your baby” throughout the pregnancy. Also, she tells Hollywoodlife.com, start “visualizing how you want your birth to go, visualizing the baby in the right position and visualizing a healthy birth.”
Kelly, who is mom to kids Hermes, 3, and Helena, 9 months, reveals that childbirth was a more positive experience the second time around. So what made the difference?
“I had a lot more support and it made it a lot easier,” she says. “I had a mid-wife with me, even though I delivered at the hospital. I had someone with me that I knew knew what was going on. It was really, really helpful.”
