There is no other joy that could even come close to that of becoming a mother. While there is no denying that it is a magical feeling, bringing another life into this world is a huge responsibility too. That being said, natural Birth just takes it up a notch. It demands patience, willpower, pain tolerance, sweat and a lot of strength. And if the baby’s head is slightly bigger in shape, natural birth gets equally risky. This could probably be one of the reasons behind the rising popularity of C-section births (1).
However, the ones who choose to go natural inspire others to do the same, especially when it is celebrity mums. Bollywood mothers have forever been on the paparazzi radar for their parenting choices, and they’re people who the public looks up to. So, when they choose natural childbirth when they get an opportunity to, it sets an example for every new mom-to-be.
Below is a list of some of these Bollywood moms who gave birth to their babies the traditional way:
1. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
We have all seen her win the Miss World crown thanks to her absolute grace and wit. Apart from being an accomplished and exceptional actress, she is a devoted mother too. This becomes more evident whenever she makes a public appearance with her little daughter, Aaradhya. She gave birth to her daughter at the age of 38. While most women over the age of 30 end up with a cesarean, Aishwarya chose to have a Normal Delivery. The doctors commended her dedication and courage.
Aishwarya was also quoted saying, “One is never too posh to push or too old for natural childbirth (2).”
2. Twinkle Khanna
Twinkle has risen to fame with her writing and continues to inspire the youth with her bold take on most controversial societal issues on her blog, Mrs. Funnybones. Using the power of words, she delivers a comic and witty take on the daily struggles of a common man. Akshay and Twinkle welcomed daughter Nitara in the September of 2012. She gave birth through a normal delivery at the Breach Candy hospital.
3. Sussanne Khan
Sussanne Khan and Hrithik Roshan are proud parents of two good-looking boys- Hridhaan and Hrehaan. This stunning mother of two gave birth to her first son named Hrehaan Roshan with her now ex-husband Hrithik, in the year 2006. Sussanne settled for a natural childbirth and came back home with a healthy baby boy.
4. Mira Kapoor
Mira Rajput and Shahid Kapoor seem to be the most loving couple in Bollywood, setting an example for most partners who’ve come together through the arranged marriage. This pair welcomed their daughter Misha on the August 27th, 2016. Misha weighed 2.8 kilograms when Mira gave birth to her through normal delivery. Once the news broke, she instantly made thousands of fans all across the country. Her parents don’t stop showing off her cute activities all across their social media platforms.
5. Tara Sharma
Tara Sharma has appeared in quite a few Bollywood movies and later went on to host her own pregnancy show called the Tara Sharma Show. She loved motherhood and enjoyed every bit of her pregnancy term. Hence, she began advertising and advocating the importance of a healthy lifestyle and a nutritious diet required for normal childbirth. She gave birth to both her sons naturally, Kai Saluja and Zen Saluja.
Now you are well aware of some of your favorite actresses who took the natural route to childbirth. This does not mean that a C-Section makes you less of a mother. There are countless celebrities who’ve had them too. But for now, let’s just raise a toast to the wonderful Bollywood mothers listed above and say “may the force be with them!”
