Supermodel KarolÃna KurkovÃ¡ Says Her Natural Home Birth Wasn’t Really That Bad
Supermodel KarolÃna KurkovÃ¡, who you may recognize from those Victoria’s Secret catalogues, welcomed her childÂ Tobin Jack just three years ago. But when reflecting on her natural home birth — which took place in her fancy Tribeca apartment — the mother maintains that she actually didn’t think she was going to die. You hear that, Miranda Kerr?
The 28-year-old’s birth reportedly lasted two and a half hours. She and husbandÂ Archie Drury had the trifecta of natural birth happening: birthing pool, midwife, and doula. With her husband mixing upÂ â€œgreen juice and coconut waterâ€ for his wife in the background, the couple ultimately welcomed their son:
â€œ[For] centuries, women have been giving birth naturally and I thinkÂ your body adjustsÂ to it and you get into a zone…Itâ€™s not like, â€˜Oh my God, itâ€™s a pain. Iâ€™m dying, Iâ€™m dying,â€™â€ theÂ supermodel coach ofÂ The FaceÂ says. â€œIt was so gradual you just kind of deal with it. You get in a zone, you really focus on helping this child to come out.â€
As is the natural birth custom (at least based on all thoseÂ home-birthingÂ videos I know you all are watching), once Tobin was born he went straight to mommyÂ KarolÃna’s chest. Even a few years later, now that Tobin is a toddler, Â KarolÃnaÂ maintains that she would “absolutely” do the wholeÂ home-birthingÂ bit all over again. And considering that it didn’t hurt like hell for her, why not?
