Beyoncé Bonded With Blue Ivy Over A Chat During Labour

Section: Celebrity Mums

Beyoncé is best known for her sensational singing, but her conversational skills are also pretty impressive as she’s admitted she was bonding with Blue Ivy while she gave birth…

There are many things going through a mum’s mind when she’s giving birth and having a leisurely chat with your baby during labour may not be top of the list unless you’re Beyoncé Knowles.

The former Destiny’s Child singer gave birth to Blue Ivy back in January.  You probably started to bond with your baby while she was in your tummy but speaking to Marie Claire Australia, Beyoncé revealed how she didn’t start feeling maternal until late into her pregnancy but that it all clicked into place during her labour.  She said that during the birth, she felt as though she was communicating with her.

Beyoncé said, ‘We were talking. I know it sounds crazy, but I felt a communication. 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.’ 

The singer said, ‘I felt very maternal around eight months. I thought I couldn’t become any more until I saw the baby… But it happened during my labour because I had a very strong connection with my child.'

During labour, the hormone oxytocin is released in greater amounts than in pregnancy to give you a feeling of euphoria and love for your newborn.
