New mum JESSICA ALBA refused to make a sound during the birth of her newborn daughter – because she wanted the experience to be like a “meditation”.
The 27-year-old star gave birth to daughter Honor Marie – her first child with husband Cash Warren – last month (07Jun08). And Alba is convinced a quiet delivery room was the key to avoiding her labor pains.
She says, “I didn’t scream. It was really Zen. I wanted to do it naturally. The labor was more like meditation. I did yoga breathing. I was focused.”
