Miranda Kerr Shops With Son Amid Epidural Comment Uproar


Miranda Kerr Shops With Son Amid Epidural Comment Uproar 0712Miranda Kerr took her son Flynn Bloom shopping at Baby Gap after running errands all day in NYC yesterday. Maybe the mom is doing some retail therapy because she’s under hot water for making comments about the negative impact of epidurals. She told Harper’s Bazaar UK, I had made a decision that I wanted to do it [naturally]. I had been watching all these baby bonding videos and [without an epidural], when the baby comes out it goes straight onto the breast. [After epidurals] the baby was a little bit drugged up and I was like, ‘Well, I don’t want that’. I wanted to give him the best possible start in life I could.”

Many people had something to say but parenting blog, Cafe Stir, responded, “I don’t care if you had an epidural, if you had it naturally, a water birth, at home or in the hospital. Women just need to respect each other.”

What do you think about Miranda’s comments? Do you find them offensive?

    Maybe I’m missing something, but I see nothing wrong with what she said. She voiced her opinion and did not degrade anyone.

    Wow, how ridiculous that she has an opinion! I had one birth with an epi, and one without, guess which one went a lot smoother and the baby breastfed easier? The natural birth. It’s not like she was putting moms down for having one, she just obviously did her research.

    I agree with Kim. I came on to this page expecting to see that she said something really nasty about women who have epidurals and I saw nothing except her honest to god opinion. I have recently given birth and meant to do it all natural just because that is what I wanted. I wanted to see what it was like and as a woman I have the right to do so, just as another woman has the right to take advantage of whatever is available to her to not feel pain. Unfortunately I ended up having to have a c-section so I had to get an epidural and I am with Miranda on how she feels. Afterwards I was still so drugged up, and felt nauseated that I couldn’t even hold my own baby. My husband and a nurse had to help me even put her to my breast to feed, and then before I came out of the epidural “fog” I was put on morphine and pain killers. Believe you me, I was worried about passing everything on to my newborn through my breast milk. I think some people just are so celebrity hating, that they will jump on to one for anything they say and those people need to get lives and get over themselves.

    Well…I didnt hear any insults or degrading comments towards others so I am going to take it as her own opinion what was best for her. Four months ago I had my first baby and didnt care for the whole I am woman I dont want any drugs bah humbug you do what is best for you and I had requested an epideral at 6 centimeters so I enjoyed the relaxing time of getting to that point then for me I said to myself I want a great experience give me the epi and once again back to that restful time until I reached TEN!! well I ended up with a c-section and after resting for about two hours in recovery and they checked my baby out I was in the room breastfeeding and enjoying my little one! every woman should decide that day your in the hospital because what you plan and think your going to go thru it a certain way will be the total opposite so be open minded!!!
