How Kate Middleton’s Preparing for Royal Baby: Swimming at the Palace, Prenatal Yoga and More!

rs_293x473-130522114258-634.3kate.ls.52213Carrying the future heir to the throne cannotbe an easy feat, so it’s no surprise Kate Middleton is serious about handling her pregnancy stress.

So how does the darling duchess cope with the pressure as her July 14 due date nears?

Turns out, the mama-to-be has a variety of relaxing activities up her royal sleeve.

British tabloids report Prince William‘s other half is considering hypnobirthing, which is said to decrease stress and pain during childbirth.

“Kate has researched various birthing methods,” Grazia magazine reports. “She wants it to be natural, so hypnobirthing is one option that appealed, and she had been reading up on it and listening to CDs to get into the right frame of mind.”

The magazine also reports the soon-to-be mom will use a birthing pool when the little one arrives, “Kate wants to do it her way and be relaxed,” sources told Grazia.

But that’s not all Kate’s up to—she’s also been swimming and doing yoga to keep herself calm and ready for the royal baby.

“She likes to swim in the Palace pool,” royal correspondent Robert Jobson told Nowmagazine. “She gets there whenever she can for 
some private relaxation.”

Her yoga sessions—which she’s been committed to doing every other day—have also helped the duchess deal with any anxiety over becoming a first time parent.

And apparently, all three tactics seem to be working:

“Kate’s not at all stressed—she just has the usual worries of an expectant mother,” Nowmagazine reports, insisting the mama-to-be is breezing through her final months.

Today, the Palace announced the duke and duchess do not know the gender of the baby, but revealed the child will be delivered at theLindo Wing of London’s St. Mary’s Hospital.

Once the royal baby is born, the announcement will be made public with a notice placed on the gates of Buckingham Palace.rs_293x473-130613053614-634.2.jc.katem.lepard.jcFollow @Infocelebrity on Twitter!
