Actress and mom, Melissa Joan Hart, somewhat regrets not going with an epidural during the birth of her second son Braydon,
I told my mom and my husband, don’t let me have [the drugs],” she told Usmagazine.com at the Celebration of Babies to benefit March of Dimes in L.A. Saturday. “I kinda regret that one,” she revealed. “But the thing is, the healing was so much faster,” the 32-year-old explained. “I didn’t have to get the drugs out of my system and was moving around a lot more.”
All in all, Melissa says that having a natural birth has motivated her,
“I labored at home for 9 hours and then went to the hospital for an hour and a half – two pushes and he was out. When you’re feeling all that, you want to get that out as soon as possible, so you really work. You’re like, ‘I’m gonna push really hard but I’m only doing it once.'”
In addition to 6-month-old Braydon, Melissa and husband Mark Wilkerson are parents to 2 1/2-year-old Mason.
