Katy Perry Shares Home Birth Experience With Jimmy Kimmel
Katy Perry may be one of the most successful pop stars on the planet, but she opted to expand her skillset moonlighting as an amateur birthing doula!
During her recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, she described what it was like helping her sister deliver a beautiful baby girl.
“I’m an assistant doula, that’s what they called me the whole time,” she told Kimmel. “I mean, I don’t know how that feels, everything I saw – ‘cause I was Scorsese-ing up in there with my video camera, just covering anniversaries and birthdays, y’know what I’m saying – but it was amazing.”
“When she was in contractions, she had candles lit and Bon Iver was playing and everybody was in this really zen mode,” she continued. “I think it’s a beautiful way to bring a child in.”
But it wasn’t all calming music and mood lighting. Katy wasn’t afraid to get her hands dirty during the miracle of life.
“We had a midwife and there was a tub in the living room,” she said. “I was holding a leg, and panting like a dog… Like, primal noises coming out.”
