Beyonce's 'Supernatural' Birth Experience Sounds Super Beautiful

Inspiring 9

BeyonceI think we can safely put to rest any rumors that Beyonce faked her pregnancy, if for no other reason (and there are plenty of others) than because her recent detailed description of Blue Ivy's birth is so unique that she couldn't possibly have made it up. In a recent interview with Vogue, the typically private star opened up about what it was like and how she was "in communication" with her baby during the delivery.

Sounds a little out there, I know, but hear her out. She said that she felt "very maternal" around eight months, and figured that those feelings couldn't possibly get any stronger until she saw her baby. Instead, she said, it began during her labor in the most interesting way.

... it happened during my labor because I had a very strong connection with my child. I felt like when I was having contractions, I envisioned my child pushing through a very heavy door. And I imagined this tiny infant doing all the work, so I couldn’t think about my own pain .... We were talking. I know it sounds crazy, but I felt a communication.

How cool is that? I love that image and can only imagine how visualizing something like that during birth could really help.

She said though she was previously scared of pregnancy, during Blue Ivy's birth, she felt fearless. “Everything that scared me just was not present in that room," she said. "So for me to really let go and really appreciate every contraction ... it was the best day of my life.”

To appreciate a contraction? That's a reach for many women, but a great way to think about them ... if you can.

She also said that giving birth has changed the way she thinks about her body.

It is a lot more sensual ... empowering. Right now, after giving birth, I really understand the power of my body, I just feel my body means something completely different. I feel a lot more confident about it. Even being heavier, thinner, whatever. I feel a lot more like a woman. More feminine, more sensual. And no shame.

No shame. That should be every mother's motto when it comes to our post-baby bodies. We can work to improve them, to be healthier, but there should be no shame when it comes to our amazing bodies that produce our amazing children. 

So overall, it sounds like Beyonce's birth experience was beautiful, and motherhood now even more so. Of Blue Ivy, she said, "She's my homey, my best friend." Say it with me, Awwww.

What do you think of Beyonce's description of her birth experience? Was yours anything like hers?

With my second I remember I was 10cm but his heartrate was dropping if I pushed so I actually fell asleep on my side and i remember feeling very euphoric as I felt him moving down with each contraction.  I didn't want to move, it was just incredible!   I could feel his head moving closer and closer until all hell broke loose and I got the urge to push, then it was just intense "Oh my god get this thing out of me" pain.  LOL!

Yes, somewhat. It was incredible to feel everything that was happening and know that my body and my baby's were doing exactly what they were supposed to. Also the best day of my life... contractions and all!

Really? I am the only one who thinks she is so full of herself she is ready to burst? REALLY?

I agree with Kristi. Did people forget that she practically blocked off the maternity ward at the hospital when she gave birth to Blue Ivy? I mean there were parents who couldn't see their little ones in NICU because she wanted to walk the halls. They quarantined the entire hall! She is ridiculous. But I'm SOOO glad she had such moving birth experience *eye roll*

Beyonce is a huge liar, everyone knows she didn't give birth to Ivy, what she did was describe the birth experience of her surrogate. Can't she just come clean and tell everyone she hired a surrogate like Giuliana Rancic? No! Because her PRIDE(which is so huge by d way) will not let her. Am sure she can't bear the thought of people seeing her not able to conceive, it will be so demeaning because she's beyonce 'the stupid diva'. I think she's a fraudster period!

And @the stir, please quit writing about 'Beyonces birth experience', we are not stupid and am sure you guys are not so naïve either!

This BS just made me throw up in my mouth. She literally makes me sick. She didnt have this baby, a surrugate did for one thing and the continued BS and lies is just wrong.

my childbirth experience was nothing like beyonce's...How? I ACTUALLY GAVE BIRTH TO MY SON! Beyonce must have paid the stir to write about her like crazy because I have been seing so many articles about her and her surrogate's experience. It's a shame...My best friend follows her on instagram and her page is so full of random ass pics, pics of the baby and her husband but none of her when she was "pregnant". Give it up already...we all know the truth.

I still remember the collapsing stomach.  She used a surrogate.  She is so full of herself, I can't believe she has any fans.
