At the beginning of June, Lilibet Diana, the second daughter of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, was born in the state of California. The couple who have carried out the entire pregnancy process with the maximum possible discretion, reported the birth of the little girl two days after delivery.
However, little by little, we are learning more details about the conditions under which it took place and what were the priorities chosen by Markle herself to bring her daughter into the world, since now her decisions do not depend on the British royal house.
Thus and as it happened during the birth of her son Archie, Meghan Markle wanted to live her birth accompanied by the doctor and doula Gowri Motha, one of the best valued figures in this field both in Hollywood and in the United Kingdom.
Calm, control and telephone advice
Gowri Motha, in addition to having attended the births of celebrities such as Elle Macpherson, Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow or Kate Moss, is an eminence in the field of motherhood in the United Kingdom because She was the doctor who attended the first water birth mentored by the British National Health Service in 1980.
Given his experience accompanying women who want to give birth in a quiet, safe environment favorable to their own decisions, Gowri Motha wrote ‘The Gentle Birth Method’, a book that teaches women to mentally rehearse their births so that they can arrive more safely and calmly at the birth of their children.
“My job is to offer support, both in preparation for delivery and a few days before the due date. Mothers usually show me their latest ultrasounds and ask for my advice. “Dr. Gowri Motha explained to People magazine to whom she also revealed that her work with Meghan Markle has been based on telephone contact and through FaceTime.
Likewise, another of the recommendations outlined by Dr. Motha has to do with the eating habits that the mother follows in the days prior to delivery. Based on his own experience, he recommends eating rice, chicken broth, light vegetables, or diuretic foods such as asparagus and squash, while advises against eating vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage or cauliflower.
Part of the method promoted by Gowri Motha is somewhat reminiscent of hypnopartum, a technique much more present in the United Kingdom than in Spain and that uses meditation to eliminate negative beliefs that women have about childbirth in order to, thus, be able to arrive at the birth of their child from the tranquility that it is a natural process in which they have decision-making power.
