Gisele famously regained her flawless figure just days after welcoming son, Benjamin Rein.
She said, “I think breastfeeding really helped. Some people here think they don’t have to breastfeed, and I think, “Are you going to give chemical food to your child, when they are so little?”
She continued, “There should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months.”
Gisele gave birth at home and shared that she meditated throughout her labor.
She told September’s issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine, “Not for one second did it cross my mind that I was not going to have my baby at home. I am not the first person to give birth naturally. Billions of other women have come before me and have done this – so why can’t I do it?”
Gisele practiced kung fu for two weeks before the birth, did yoga three times a week and meditated every day in preparation.
“It prepared me mentally and physically,” she said. “It’s called “labor”, not “holiday” for a reason, and I knew that. You want to go into the most intense physical experience of your life unprepared? That doesn’t make any sense to me. Then I was ready and I thought, “OK let’s get to work”. I wasn’t expecting someone else to get the baby out of me. I had to do it together with him.”
Gisele also shared that she dreams of living on a farm with Benjamin and husband, Tom Brady.
“I want to get a farm where I am going to live for the rest of my life. I like the idea of a secluded place,” she said.
She added, “I will have horses, my kids will be riding, and there will be chickens and ducks. I don’t know where it will be, but I have the vision of trees and a lake and mountains in the background.”
