Meghan Markle to hire doula

Adjust Comment Print

This would be the first time in centuries that a doula has been employed during a royal birth.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's baby appears to be active in the womb, as fans spot the moment the Duchess of Sussex's baby "kicks" during royal outing.

The plan includes acupuncture and learning a labour technique called hypno-birthing, sources close to Meghan and Prince Harry told Vanity Fair.

A source told the U.S. publication that the former actress wants to focus on being "calm" and having "positive energy" when welcoming her first child.

Talking with People, managing editor of Majesty magazine Jo Little explained that despite Meghan's famous face, she would not feature as prominently at official royal events: "She was not as prominent as perhaps some people might have expected, but there's a pecking order".

The Duke and Duchess will relocate to their newly-renovated property in March, allowing them time to settle in before Meghan's due date, which she previously said is late April or early May.

There was some speculation that Meghan could decide to give birth at the NHS-run Frimley Park Hospital in Camberley, Surrey - where the Countess of Wessex had her two children.

It turns out she's also coaching dad-to-be Prince Harry, 34, on how to care for the Duchess of Sussex during the labor.

Meghan and Harry chose Lauren and it was not a coincidence.

The 40-year-old is married to Oliver Mishcon, whose grandad was head of legal firm Mishcon de Reya, which dealt with Princess Diana's 1996 divorce from Prince Charles. The Sun spoke with Lauren about the headline-making news that she's helping Meghan and Harry, but she wasn't allowed to give any confirmation or details.

"That really touched me-and I'm not even a royalist", Smith says.

Last month staff it was reported that Kensington Palace are spending hours moderating "hundreds of thousands" of vile sexist and racist online comments aimed at Kate Middleton and Meghan. "So I can't possibly.I wouldn't be able to talk to you about anything".
