Celebrity Moms opt for Natural Childbirth and Breastfeeding

It's true, celebrities don't have a whole lot to do with anything relevant in our day to day lives, especially if you're a grown up.  But they do have a lot of influence on the lives of young people on a daily basis.  Luckily, celebrity moms have been speaking out about their childbirth and parenting preferences and I am sure they're having an impact on impressionable minds in more ways then we can imagine.

Pink, a famous singer/pop star/super celebrity, recently gave birth to her first child Willow Sage.  In a recent article from CNN Entertainment, Pink talks about how she had really wanted a natural childbirth but daughter Willow had other plans and presented in a frank breech position resulting in Pink delivering via cesarean section.

Pink also speaks publicly and tweets about her daughter, breastfeeding, and parenting.  Celebrities like Ricki Lake, Gwen Stefani and others also advocate natural childbirth, breastfeeding and more.  Other well known celebrities like Demi Moore, Pamela Anderson and Cindy Crawford advocate homebirthing and midwifery.

While celebrities are often in the limelight for their crazy ways and society as a whole often fears the negative influence they might have on today's youth, it is encouraging to see some celebrities having a positive impact.

I am glad there are so many celebrities who DO endorse natural child rearing!

And don't forget Kourtney Kardashian! She breastfed to a year and co-sleeps!
