Gisele Bundchen + Water Birth

On, an editorial for Gisele Bundchen who recently gave birth to her first-born states this:

Benjamin was born at home, in warm water in a deep bathtub that overlooks the Charles River. "I wanted to experience the transformation," says Gisele. A midwife friend of hers came in from Brazil as did her mother; her husband was there too. Gisele meditated through the birth. "It was the most amazing experience of my life, feeling him come through my body. And once he was born, I never felt so empowered as looking at him and thinking, Oh, my God, we did it together!"

Could she be talking about water birth? Oh, I never would have the courage to do that.  Never! Even if I would be under a hypnotic trance, no!

But on this statement, I couldn't agree with her more,

"I don't trust anyone else with Benjamin."

First-time mom syndrome.
