Would love to have a baby every day: Helena
London: Helena Bonham Carter has revealed that she looked forward to childbirth when she was pregnant because the epidurals she received put her in a calming, ‘blissed-out’ state.
The ‘Alice In Wonderland’ star, who has a son and a daughter with partner Tim Burton, insisted the experience of going into labour was made so enjoyable by the painkillers, she would happily give birth to a baby ‘every day’.
“I would love to have a baby every day. I’m just talking about childbirth. I love childbirth, I did. It’s so underrated,” a daily quoted her, as saying.
“I think it was wonderful for me. It’s the only time I did drugs and that epidural is a drug. I could have one (a baby) every day. I wouldn’t look after them, but I could have them everyday!” said the actress.
“The epidural, I worship at the altar of the person who invented the drug, because you go from a life-transforming pain to just this blissed-out state. And it does have opium in it, did you know that? So that’s probably why I was so happy,” she added.
