Miranda Kerr didn't want a drugged-up baby

Miranda Kerr and baby Flynn Bloom
The 29-year-old model, who gave birth to baby Flynn in January last year, made the decision to avoid having an epidural.

Miranda told Harper's Bazaar: "I had made a decision I wanted to do it naturally. So I was kind of upset when the doctor said I had to be induced because there wasn't enough liquid around the baby.
"She was like, 'most people who get induced have the epidural. I don't know anyone who hasn't'. And I'm like, 'I made a plan. I am determined to do this without pain medication'."
I wanted to give him the best possible start in life I could."
Miranda Kerr
Miranda added that in a few films she's watched "the baby was a little bit drugged-up", so she decided: "Well, I don't want that".
Her controversial comments suggest the anaesthesia could have a lasting effect on a child, which will no doubt anger mothers who chose to have the treatment.
Orlando Bloom
Australian beauty Miranda, who's married to actor Orlando Bloom, 35, is totally smitten with her adorable little boy.
"What's surprised me most is just how incredible the bond is between you and your child. To watch him grow and evolve every day is really inspiring.
"To wake up to the sound of my son saying 'Mama, mama!' It's the best sound ever. Then I just love to get him out of bed and he can jump into bed with us, and we have cuddle time."
Cuddle time with Orlando Bloom doesn't sound too shabby to us.
