She did it the traditional way via water birth, which took less than 30 minutes.

She describes her pregnancy as the most fulfilling journey ever.

“I’m so proud of myself for pushing for only 26 min (minutes) without an epidural. Also grateful for the support from my man, twinny, midwife and doula. I almost got discouraged for wanting a natural birth. Many said I was ‘brave’ I laughed coz (because) I’m not, I’M A WOMAN,” she said on Instagram.

She also shared her birth video on Twitter, where she gave her followers insight into what it was like to do a water birth.

“I think giving birth is the same, the environment was very calming, which made it easier I believe. I’d do it over and over again,” she said.

Her friend, Ayanda Thabethe, also gave birth to a baby boy last month and documented her journey.

Thabethe had a C-section, and just like Mbombo, she was supported by her sister throughout the journey.

Both of them had beautiful baby showers. Mbombo’s was themed Royal Duchess baby shower, while Thabethe’s was Ayanda and Co, inspired by Tifanny and Co.
