Australian actress Melissa George refused painkillers and struggled through a marathon three-day labour to give birth to her son last month (Feb14).

The 37 year old welcomed a little boy named Raphael, her first child with French businessman Jean-David Blanc, in Paris, France on 6 February (14), and George opted for a natural birth.

The former Home and Away star refused medication and spent three days in agony during a lengthy labour.

She tells Britain's Hello! magazine, "(He was) huge! I'm paying for that now - I'm still recovering... They (the French nurses) said, 'Oh, those Australians are crazy! They are so tough!' I thought that was hilarious... They had all the instruments ready in case, and I looked at the vacuum and the forceps and thought, 'There is no way on this planet they're coming near me'... I was in labour for three days."

However, George insists she doesn't regret her choice, adding of the birth, "It was magic and Jd (Blanc) was right beside me. It was amazing... I just couldn't believe the body could do that."
