Melissa George - Melissa George's 'great' three day labour
Melissa George was in labour for three days, having contractions ''every five to eight minutes'', before she welcomed son Raphael into the world last month.
Melissa George was in labour for three days with son Raphaël.
The 'Good Wife' actress and her boyfriend Jean-David Blanc welcomed their son into the world on February 6, and although she was having contractions ''every five to eight minutes'' for 72 hours, she insists she had a ''great time'' waiting for the new arrival.
She told HELLO! magazine: ''I was in labour for three days, around the clock, with contractions every five to eight minutes.
''I had a great time walking up and down the halls and going from the bath to the shower, to the balloon balls. I had the bar by the head to hold on to so I could squat and let gravity do its work.''
Although Melissa was in hospital for eight days, she enjoyed the experience since she shared it with a friend who was going through the same thing.
She added: ''We had a great time because a very good friend went into labour two days after me. She was next door to me so all our friends in Paris could visit both of us.''
