Surprising Things You Didn't Know About Royal Pregnancies

7. Kate Middleton Practiced Hypnobirthing
Middleton tried hypnobirthing during labor, which practices natural childbirth and self-hypnosis techniques.

"I'm not going to say that William was standing there, sort of, chanting sweet nothings at me," Middleton told Happy Mum, Happy Baby. "He definitely wasn't. I didn't even ask him about it, but it was just something I wanted to do for myself."

"I saw the power of it really — the meditation and the deep breathing and things like that, that they teach you in hypnobirthing — when I was really sick, and actually I realized that this was something I could take control of, I suppose, during labor. It was hugely powerful."
