Gisele Bundchen Talks Breastfeeding, Meditation

Landing the prized September cover, Gisele Bundchen posed for a stylish spread for Harper's Bazaar UK's 'The Fashion Issue'.

Set to hit newsstands on August 5th, the supermodel mommy opened up in the accompanying interview on topics such as childbirth, breastfeeding and getting back in tip-top shape following the arrival of baby Benjamin Brady.

The 30-year-old tells, "I think breastfeeding really helped (me keep me figure). Some people here (in the US) think they don't have to breastfeed, and I think 'Are you going to give chemical food to your child when they are so little?'"

Miss Bundchen continues, "I think there should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months."

Also revealing that she utilized meditation prior to her son's arrival, Gisele dishes, "It prepared me mentally and physically. It's called 'labour' not 'holiday' for a reason, and I knew that."

She adds, "You want to go into the most intense physical experience of your life unprepared? That doesn't make any sense to me. Then I was ready and I thought OK, let's get to work'. I wasn't expecting someone else to get the baby out of me."
