Meghan Markle, 41, has opened up about the pressures of being a “good mom” in the latest installment of her Archetypes podcast and she made an admission about one of her holistic approaches to pregnancy.

She used to send me these little meditations during my pregnancy and voice notes, just these moments of encouragement and I’ve gone to her over the years for advice.”

The Duchess doesn’t disclose if it was her first or second pregnancy (or indeed both) that she took this holistic approach with mindfulness practice.

The NHS website details how meditation and mindfulness can be helpful in general. “Mindfulness can help us deal with issues more productively. Becoming more aware of the present moment can help us enjoy the world around us more and understand ourselves better,” it reads.

Talking to Serena, she said: “You made pregnancy look so sexy. I just waddled around. I was just tired. So tired. Oh my God.”

These two feelings are very relatable, and probably ones that most pregnant women experience.

I view it differently now, without question. But I’ve always wanted to try and ensure that, even before having a child and hoping to have children…”
