The CSI: Miami star has no intentions of becoming a first-time mother at home. “I will definitely go to the hospital — I am no spring chicken,” she says.
When Emily Procter’s boyfriend, musician Paul Bryan, suggested she try a trendy way to give birth when she goes into labor with their first child, she just laughed. “My boyfriend suggested we have a water birth, to which I replied, ‘Are you going to clean the tub?’ That’s usually my job, and I’m not doing it,” she tells People.com.
It seems that age is playing a factor in the CSI: Miami star’s decision to head to the hospital when her contractions start coming fast and furious. “I told Paul, ‘Look, if I were 25, maybe we could have a home birth. I’m 41. We’re going to the hospital.” Did you ever consider giving birth at home, HollyMoms? If so, what did you end up doing?
Besides knowing where she wants to deliver, Emily, who is due in December, has been learning everything she can about caring for babies. “I think I’m over-preparing,” she admits. “I have us signed up for baby CPR, if we’ve done our homework then no matter what life throws at us, we’ll be prepared.”
What else should she be studying up on? If you have any tips or suggestions for the mom-to-be, please feel free to share them in the comment section below!
