Lauren Goodger has revealed she will likely give birth to her baby daughter at home.
Speaking to Jenny Powell and Kelly Pegg on their Hot Mess Mums Club podcast, the former TOWIE star, 34, explained: ‘I’m low risk, so they are kind of edging me to a home birth, and I don’t like the thought of going to hospital.’
Lauren – who is weeks away from welcoming her first child with boyfriend Charles Drury – also said she would ‘like to have probably three kids’.
Home birth: Lauren Goodger, 34, has revealed she will likely give birth to her baby daughter at home and would like ‘two more’ children
She went on: ‘Giving birth is the most natural thing a woman can do, I know it’s hard and it’s horrendous, but when you go to hospital they see a thousand of you, they haven’t got a huge amount of time.
‘As much as the doctors and nurses are lovely, they are on a time scale, so if you wanna do everything in your own time you can’t dictate that in a hospital.
‘At home you can have a birthing pool, have candles on, music, be relaxed through it and I think the more relaxed I am the more chance I will have an easy birth.’
Lauren added: ‘The more they are poking and prodding me, the more tense I will feel and the more hard it will be. You haven’t got to pack a bag, you have everything you need.’

Lauren also revealed that she would like two more children, although her third child may not arrive until she is 40.
‘I’m 34 and I’m having my first, so you know, but depending on life and situations and whatever happens, I would like to have probably three kids.’
She continued: ‘So by the time this one’s here I will just be turning 35, so I could be 40 when I have my last.’
