Secrets of Meghan Markle’s ‘20-strong childbirth team’ – who’ve had to give up booze and are on call three months in advance
And in the run-up to the birth, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have pulled out all the stops by reportedly hiring a team of 20 specialist doctors to deliver their first born.
According to the Daily Star, Meghan and Harry have already selected 20 baby doctors to be on call 24 hours a day – and the medical staff reportedly won't be allowed to drink in the run-up to the birth.
According to a source: "Meghan will have a huge team to make sure that all the bases are covered should anything go wrong.
"Everyone has been vetted in advance and sworn to secrecy."
The staggering team of specialists is said to include two obstetricians, three midwives, three anaesthetists, four surgical staff, two special care baby-unit staff, four paediatricians, one lab technician and three or four managers.
Just like sister-in-law Kate Middleton, Meghan will reportedly give birth in the private, £6,000 per night Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, London.
The luxurious Lindo Wing has satellite TV, radio, fridge and free wifi in every room as well as an afternoon tea service.
There are in-room services for new mums, including massages, and they have extensive menus to cater for any dietary requirement.
Two weeks ago, Pippa Middleton welcomed her first child – a baby boy weighing 8lb 9oz – at the Lindo Wing.
The Duchess of Cambridge also had all three of her children in the private wing and Princess Diana gave birth to Prince William and Prince Harry at the Lindo Wing, too.
