(Newser) – Kate Middleton is not messing around when it comes to childbirth: The Duchess of Cambridge is considering hypno-birthing, sources tell Grazia and Now in interviews picked up by EntertainmentWise. The birthing method is supposed to make for a shorter, less painful labor by decreasing anxiety, which could be particularly helpful since Kate wants a natural birth, one source says. She's even "been reading up on [hypno-birthing] and listening to CDs to get into the right frame of mind," the source adds.

Other reports have suggested Middleton will use a birthing pool, and will deliver her baby at St. Mary Hospital in Paddington, where princes William and Harry were born. Kate is said to have been taking prenatal yoga classes to prepare for the birth, the Daily Mail reports, and has been keeping in shape by swimming. Middleton made her last planned public appearance yesterday, at a naming ceremony for the latest Royal Princess cruise ship. The rumor mill thinks the royal baby is due July 13.

Man, my eyes got this all wrong. At first, I thought it said "Pregnancy Prop Revealed", and I was wondering why she needed props to have a baby. Then I saw the airplane and wondered why in the world she would need an enormous fake airplane. I think I need more sleep.

Kate's a much more mature and responsible PERSON than Kim is. No contest nor comparison. The latter is a spoiled, indulged, rich child who's never had to grow up, and probably was never made to do anything, much less carry, give birth to, and bear and rear a child. How WILL she do it? Probably with the help of her mother, IF she knows how to do it. She probably had help.

Good for Kate. She's handling her pregnancy a lot more maturely than Kim K. who's whining to her mother, "I don't think I can do this!". I feel sorry for HER kid already. As Rhett said to Scarlett, "A cat is a better mother than you are!".
