Gisele Bundchen on Her Painless Water Birth

By Justmommies

Supermodel Gisele Bundchen is opening up about giving birth to her eight-week-old son Benjamin.

According to People, the 29-year-old had a water birth at her and hubby Tom Brady's home in Boston. People reports that Bundchen shared details on the Brazilian TV show Fantastico. "It wasn't painful, not even a little bit," she revealed. "The whole time, my head was so focused, every contraction, the baby is closer, the baby is closer. So, it wasn't like, 'Oh, what pain.' It was, 'With every contraction, he is getting closer to me.' "

Bundchen also said she declined an epidural, because she wanted to be "conscious and present for what was happening."

The day after delivering Benjamin, Bundchen said she was up and about, even making pancakes! Some girls have all the luck!
