With the arrival of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's baby sometime in the spring of 2019 (though it has been speculated that Meghan is due sooner), the couple is of course preparing and educating themselves on all things baby. This includes the birth. It's been reported that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are looking into their "options" when it comes to giving birth and that Meghan has been reading up on "hypnobirthing" and may even give birth at home.

  • Home, of course, is Frogmore House, which the couple is preparing now so they can move in soon.

    The big move from Kensington Palace into Frogmore came with some controversy and had some questioning if there was a feud between Kate Middleton and Meghan. However, that all seems to be much ado about nothing. Frogmore isn't just being decorated with a baby nursery, though.

  • Meghan's mom, Doria Ragland, is said to be moving so she can help.

    Doria plans on not only being there for the birth of her royal grandchild, but she is moving to the UK so she can be closer all the time. Rumor has it that Frogmore is also being fit with a "granny flat" for Doria and that she is also helping Meghan explore natural birthing options.

  • Kate Middleton reportedly explored home birth and hypnobirthing as well.

    There were reports that Kate planned a home birth for baby Louis and that hypnobirthing is something Kate took part in when having all her kids. Hypnobirthing is quite popular and helps calm mama, allowing more good hormones to be released for an easier labor. However, Kate did have all three babies at St. Mary's Hospital in London. Maybe Meghan birthing at home will be one more thing that sets the two apart. 

  • Meghan is already a mindful mama.

    Meghan's known for loving yoga, so it seems in line for her to read up on hypnobirthing and home birth. And it's brilliant for her to look into all her options -- an informed mama-to-be is the best kind.

    We'll have to wait to see just where this little baby will be born, but one thing is certain: He or she is going to be really loved!
