Beyoncé Communicated With Daughter During Birth
Beyoncé has been very hush-hush about her daughter and her personal life in general but it seems that in recent weeks she has been opening up about her experiences. The pop star first talked about a miscarriage she had before conceiving Blue Ivy and then trying to put to rest rumors that she wasn’t really pregnant by saying just this, “That was very odd. Who even thinks that?”
Additionally, Beyoncé says of the speculation that she used a surrogate. “Like, who would make that up … You can’t take it too seriously.” Most recently, she talked to Vogue about how she communicated with her daughter during birth. She says, “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. Everything that scared me just was not present in that room,” she explains. “So for me to really let go and really appreciate every contraction … it was the best day of my life.”
She then goes on to say how she hopes her daughter will have a normal life saying, “At some point it’s very important to me that my daughter is able to experience life and run through the sprinklers and have slumber parties and trust and live and do all the things that any child should be able to do. School visits and lemonade stands and all that stuff. It’s very important to me.”
Overall, I think that both Beyoncé and Jay-Z have done a pretty good job of shielding their 13-month old from the eye of the paparazzi, something that I find commendable. I don’t feel like I “talked” to any of my children during their birth, but if that is what helped her get through the pain, good for her!
