Oh, baby! Meghan Markle’s birth plan has been released, and it’s very different than any other Royal’s birth plan before.
Births have always been an exciting celebration in the Royal Family. Many times, births symbolize the next heir to the throne or a next major figure in The Firm. Princess Diana modernized so much of the Royal Family when she welcomed her sons and heirs to the throne, Prince William and Prince Harry.
Princess Di delivered her children at the very prestigious Lindo Wing. At 7,500 a night, the Lindo Wing also became the stage Prince William and Kate Middleton’s children’s debut. Kate delivered her three children, George, Charlotte, and Louis, at the Lindo Wing before doing a photo shoot just hours later on the front steps.
The Cambridge children’s debuts were International news, but after learning of Meghan Markle’s birth plan it sounds like a public debut of her firstborn child just hours after they’ve arrived is not a priority.
Recently, The Daily Mail published an article announcing Meghan was creating a very specific birth plan- and neither checking into the Linda Wing nor having a public photoshoot are not on that list.
Rather, the Duchess of Sussex is reading up on a hypnobirthing at her home in Windsor. For those of you aren’t familiar with hypnobirthing, the Mayo Clinic defines it as “birthing method that uses self-hypnosis and relaxation techniques to help a woman feel physically, mentally and spiritually prepared and reduce her awareness of fear, anxiety, and pain during childbirth.”
While hypnobirthing in no way sounds like anything that any other Royal would implement in their birth plan, it seems to make sense for Meghan Markle. Meghan has always been an advocate of more a more natural lifestyle.
And just because she’s now married into the Royal Family doesn’t mean she won’t opt for a more low-key birth plan.
Meghan is expected to welcome her first child in March 2019. There is no word on whether or not she’s having a boy or a girl, but Harry has openly admitted that he hopes “its a girl!” Ahh! We can’t wait to see their precious little one. The Spring can’t come soon enough!
