Britney Spears's 'kabbalah water birth' - Page 2

post #21 of 55
the whole kabbalah water thing is interesting, but how on earth would they warm up all that water? I don't think she's planning a waterbirth. Not at all. I don't see her as the type to want something like that. Then again, I'm eager to be surprised!

I also read in US Weekly : that she's already got her c-section planned. It didn't mention any legitimate medical reason for the c-section so I assume it's for her convenience.

Oh, C'mon, Kathleen, what about the medical "fact" that a cesarean will help keep your girlie parts all tight and young? That you'll never experience incontinence later on if you have a cesarean?

Yeah...and as an extra bonus, you might be lucky enough to lose all the feeling in those parts. I've got next to no bladder sensation right now, and I'm none too sure what everything else will be like (way too sore right now to try to find out). Why, why, why does everyone think c-sections are the "easy" way??

You get to stay all tight and young AND if you're lucky and rich you can have a plastic surgeon hook youup with a little nip/tuck while they're in there

wanted to add...it doesn't really surprise me that she's already got it all planned out. Didn't her kabballah buddy Madonna also schedule her two sections? Not sure of the details on that, so I may be wrong.

Believe me, having had a section five years ago, I really wouldn't wish it on anyone and I think it totally sends the wrong message to her young fans. Not to mention marrying a man who left his very pregnant girlfriend and his other young child also send the wrong message, but that maybe another topic

Seriously, pamamidwife, is that true?

I have had four homebirths, vaginally, and I am now in the menopause, and I honestly do not have any incontinence problems......kegel,kegel,kegel...

But for most women, is that true? Just asking, not wanting to hijack the thread or anything...

I had read that Madonna had her first caesarean section surgery because of FTP, and her second for placenta praevia.

But who really knows about these people!

I had also read that most of the caesareans in the celebrity community are scheduled not just for vanity, but because of Herpes outbreaks... , but then I do have a friend who delivered her #5 at home with an unexpected (?how can that be?) Herpes outbreak - ! He is just fine.

well, it's what the sOBs are telling women. one doc said that he'd much rather see his own wife have cesareans just because of all the prolapse/incontience problems he sees in his practice with older women.

what they forget is that the way vaginal birth is done in our culture is creating more pelvic floor problems, not vaginal birth itself. forced pushing, supine positioning, vacuum extractors, forceps, episiotomy, reaming of the tissues, etc.

Even c/s moms should do kegels. Espeically if they labored any first. The body still loosens and opens and thinks it'sgoing to birth vaginally. Something elsea lot of people who have c/s believe (Idoubt anyone around here!) is that you don'thave bleeding post-partum or it's less.I have quite a few c/s friends who will tell you that'snot true either and at least one of them is a Kegel queen because of incontinence.

On another Kegel note: nobody talked about Kegels for years. My mom had four kids, we each wereborn with the "help" of an episiotomy and now my mom has incontinence issues. She said she wished someone had told herabout Kegels years ago. She was in awe watching the nurse do perineal massage to me when I birthed my first. She had no idea that a perineum could be saved like that. I feel bad for her. anyway, that's all off-topic

, but I remember my mw saying that prolapse and incontinence can also occur from the pregnancy itself. Just from all of the weight pressing down into the pelvis. So, just because a person gets a c-section it doesn't mean that incontinence or prolapse isn't going to happen.

Now that wouldnt' shock me. There is a lot of promiscuity in the celebrity world.


Re: tightness of vagina and urinary issues. I had a vaginal delivery... and I was just as tight after as I was before once I healed. I've always been told that I was really snug - not to be embarassing, just stating as a medical thing. And no issues with bladder or urination. And none of my girlfriends who had vaginal deliveries have ever said a word to me about any urinary issues... sounds like hogwash to me.

Sorry I can't think of Britney without seeing the cover of a lad magazine over here with her in all her glory and the headline 'Get a pound of Britney's Pears'

I would love to see someone like her with her pears out and a baby latched on for all the world to see. Hopefully she wil have a waterbirth and talk about it endlessly.

A bit OT but there is a tv presenter here called Davina McCall who is mad about pregnancy and birth. She is very very glam and had her first child at home with a private midwife. And she talks about it endlessly in the media. I love it!

I remember her second baby was unexpectedly early around 35 weeks so I could believe placenta praevia that caused an emergency c-section.

That is precisely what I thought...!

Thank you!

I give up!

O. K. , Mother to six beautiful children, how exactly does a rabbi "bless the tub" before the birth?

(Because I am a recovering Catholic, I have a picture of a Rabbi bending over a birthing tub, † blessing it...! Sacreligious for sure!)

Hope I did not insult you.

just asking ...

Yeah, I heard she's already signed the papers for a scheduled cesarean. That way, everything can be planned neatly around the schedule book.

I read placental abruption. But also... it is common in Hollywood to have your c-birth early to avoid the last trimester stretch...

[QUOTE=Pandora114]yeah I am suprised that she didn't march up to the Elective Cesarian signup sheet and put her name down in big red letters.

I'm glad she doesn't think herself too posh to push

I hope she gets the labour she wants. All women deserve that.

I want the # to her plastic surgeon when she's done. *jiggles her belly pouch that hasn't dissaperared*[/QUOte

what's all the bashing for?? not that i am a fan, but it's kinda cruel for no reason.
