MIRANDA Kerr has revealed she gave birth naturally because she didn’t want a “drugged up” baby.

The sexy model — who’s married to Orlando Bloom — watched a number of birthing videos before giving birth to Flynn, now 17 months old, and was concerned if she had an epidural it would negatively impact on her son.

“I had made a decision that I wanted to do it [naturally],” she said.

“I had been watching all these baby bonding videos and [without an epidural], when the baby comes out it goes straight onto the breast.”

Miranda added in situations where the mother had received medication to help with the birth, “the baby was a little bit drugged up and I was like, ‘Well, I don’t want that’.  I wanted to give him the best possible start in life I could.

“What’s surprised me most is just how incredible the bond is between you and your child. To watch him grow and evolve every day is really inspiring.

“[My perfect day is] to wake up to the sound of my son saying, ‘Mama, mama!’ It’s the best sound ever. Then I just love to get him out of bed and he can jump into bed with us, and we have cuddle time!”
