I don' t know, she seems pretty crunchy. I won' t be surprised if some kind of real medical reasoning comes out on this, like placenta previa or something like that. Maybe even a breech, I know not ABSOLUTELY necessary, but that is the generally held belief right now most places.

Let's not jump to conclusions. I believe she had a natural vaginal birth in a hospital and was talking about having a homebirth this time. She may have had a very valid reason for going ahead with a csection if its even true.

Where did you hear this? A quick websearch of the news/media outlets doesn't seem to be confirming that she even gave birth, much less by c/sec (ok, there was one report that she gave birth over the weekend, but it was less than reputable).

Just because she had a nanny doesn't mean she isn't crunchy. I didn't read anything in the article that said so. Also I'm not one for putting a whole lotta stock in what employee's of celebrities say, you know? I do remember hearing her borth with Apple was very long and complicated, so I wouldn't jump to conclusions.

Can't read it. I am too tired of the judgment. I had a csection & I am very glad I am not in the public eye. Her birth choices should be private.

Didn't see anything in the article? Maybe I read too much into it but the nanny is for pretty strict scheduling of feedings, teaching baby to go to sleep by itself,

Quote:
The rot set in, she believes, with the fashion for demand feeding, which establishes mum as baby's servant. "It affects a child's whole life," she says. "A child who has had to fit in with the family and has a routine fits in better at school."
Quote:
But essentially lots of routine. "Most of us live by routine, why not start that with babies?" she says. "I wake babies during the day to feed them, but never at night. If babies fall asleep halfway through a feed, I change their nappies and then they can have the other breast. And I tuck babies down to sleep when they are awake so they learn to sleep on their own. It's so much better for them."
I gather by reading this she is more like ezzo than AP. Not saying she is that bad but the talk of scheduling and being anti bf on demand has me wondering.

Not everyone that breastfeeds and babywears is AP. I would think there would have to be some form of CIO if the woman has the baby sleeping through the night at 6 weeks. Oh well.

The article was the nanny's description of caring, not Gwyneths. I would rather hear it straight from the source and not by someone who was at one time employed by them.

I just searched google news and found 74 articles on Gwyneth's c-section. A quick read through the first page and none mentions it being planned.

I also read that article about the nanny. Lord! Having a baby sleep through the night at 6 weeks by refusing to feed on demand seems almost criminal to me! My dd's ped is a prof of pediatrics at our top ten medical school and he says that feeding on demand is vitally important and makes for healthier babies in the long run because their emotional needs are met and they learn to eat on demand which means they are less likely to be obese. He is like 60 years old and this is old news to him. How is it that there are people still today who think differently? Baffling selfishness!

I'm refering to the nanny in my post, not Gwyneth, just in case it isn't clear.

Well, my dd slept through the night at a few weeks old but she was a little odd in the sleeping department. And go figure, she had periods of a lot of nightwaking around a few of the big milestones, at age 2 and again last month. No CIO, I think I may have tried it once half-heartedly, but it felt wrong, wrong, wrong and dh and I said we'd never do that again.


eta: when I said I may have tried CIO half-heartedly, I mean around age 1 or so, not with a newborn.

She had a very long labor and an epidural with her first baby.

Don't ask me why I know these things

So there are now umpteen articles confirming she had a baby, but none mention a c/sec. However, if it is true, my guess would be that the difference between the 10 lbs. vag. birth with the first and a c/sec this time would be 'location, location, location'. She was a birth center transfer to hospital with the first and this time, reportedly gave birth in an NYC hospital.

I don't see the big deal that she had a planned c-section. I just wrote that in my post because that's what I read.

I can't believe I'm posting on this but I thought I heard she had a really long hard labor with Apple and she was over 10 pounds. Maybe something happened that made a c-section a better choice..........

i heard the interview gywneth paltrow did with oprah winfrey and she talked a little bit about laboring with apple. i posted about the interview in the celebrity homebirthers thread in the homebirth forum, too. she labored for "about 70 hours" with apple, and finally somewhere in the 60s hours (high sixties, i think, but not sure...) she agreed that getting an epidural would be a good idea since she was exhausted. baby apple was born just a few hours later. i don't remember apple being reported as being a big baby. i don't remember any details being released at all about her height and weight at all, in fact, just her birthday, and then a few days later, her name.

and so far, perezhilton.com is the only source and the only referred source in any of the news outlets that says anything about it being a planned cesarean or even a cesarean.

and i agree with respecting the privacy of her birthing choices, but i'm really darn curious because i know she is probably still vegetarian, mostly macrobiotic, practices yoga regularly (daily?). the medical climate of NYC is not very conducive to vaginal births of breech or otherwise "malpositioned" babies, so if that was the case, i can understand the rumor of a planned cesarean.

welcome to our world, baby Moses!
