Mama knows best! Meghan Markle is pregnant with her first child, and Doria Ragland is giving her daughter all the advice that she can. While the Duchess isn’t expected to give birth until spring 2019, Doria is apparently “encouraging Meg to go for a natural birth,” a source told Vanity Fair.

As she gets further into her pregnancy, Meghan has been planning for the arrival of her little bundle of joy. Since this is her first childbirth, doctors may recommend a hospital birth. However, the 37-year-old is supposedly not expected to check into the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital in London like Kate Middleton has with her three kiddos.

The former actress is reportedly considering giving birth at home. Katie Nicholl, Vanity Fair‘s royal correspondent, even revealed that there is “some talk” of her having the baby at her and Prince Harry’s new abode, Frogmore Cottage. Wow!

It’s no surprise that Meg has been allegedly dealing with the nerves that come along with pregnancy. The Suits alum has even reportedly been studying up on hypnobirthing, whose basic premise is to calm your nerves when it comes to childbirth through breathing and meditative techniques.

Luckily, the brunette beauty also has a great support system around her. “Meghan is nervous about the birth and has also been turning to Kate for tips on how to deal with balancing royal life with being a mom,” a source told Life & Style. “After having three children, Kate is a pro at motherhood and has been advising Meghan on what lies ahead.”

That support from her family will continue post-birth considering it was reported that “Doria plans to be around a lot when the baby arrives,” the Vanity Fair source dished. Meghan and Harry, 34, are even making “plans for her to have a dedicated space at their new home” at Frogmore Cottage.

Doria reportedly plans to move across the pond when her grandchild arrives because “she wants to be on hand to help Meghan and Harry with the baby.” We bet Meg would be over-the-moon if she had her mama with her permanently.
