Los Angeles: Kimberley Walsh says that her singing teacher has suggested to her to use vocal lessons to assist in childbirth.
The Girls Aloud singer has continued to take singing lessons throughout her pregnancy and her teacher says the techniques she learns could be useful in labour, reports contactmusic.com.
"My teacher mentioned that breathing techniques she'd learnt from singing really helped in childbirth - using her singing power to push the baby out,” contactmusic.com quoted Walsh as saying.
She added: "Can you imagine if I had a Julie Andrews moment and burst into 'The Sound of Music' in the labour ward?"
The “Promise” hitmaker says it is "important" for her to continue with vocal training because of how the pressure of the baby affects her internally.
"It's important that I can still sing with this bump as there's not as much space for my diaphragm, but my teacher, Mary, told me I'm fine,” she said.
