Kate Goodland, Harry Kane’s fiancée, gave birth to her second baby on Wednesday 8th August. Kate used a birthing pool and hypnobirthing techniques only, without any other pain relief.

Proud dad Harry announced their news on Instagram with a photo of the 3 of them and the following caption:

"Our beautiful addition to the family! Vivienne Jane Kane. So proud of @KateGoodlandx for having the most amazing water birth with no pain relief at all #mygirls #hypnobirthing."

Tommy’s midwife Jo says,

“It’s brilliant to hear that Kate had such a positive birth, and it sounds like Harry enjoyed the experience too. Creating the right environment is really important to help mum stay calm and keep labour moving.

“There are lots of different pain relief options, from hypnobirthing through to an epidural. It’s a very personal decision and it’s not one size fits all. Chat to your midwife about what your options are, and remember that you can change your mind at any time (even during labour itself).”

    Delayed cord clamping (DCC)

    Cutting the cord immediately after the birth has been routine practice for 50-60 years but more recently research is showing that it is not good for the baby.

    What to expect when your waters break

    Your waters can break before you go in to hospital but they are more likely to break during labour, or they can even be broken for you by your midwife to speed up your labour (a process known as artificial rupture of membranes).
