Alanis Morissette is opening up about the "beyond pain" she experienced during her child's home birth in a new interview with Today.
"I didn't really even imagine myself having the birth experience in the hospital," the 39-year-old singer said in an interview that aired on Thursday, Sept. 26. "My home is like my little sanctuary."
Morissette and her husband, rapper Mario Treadway, welcomed their son Ever on Christmas Day 2010, without any doctors or medicine. The only help they had during the natural birth was a midwife and a doula.
"It was a transcendental experience," the "You Oughta Know" rocker said. "I just went to this whole other world. I basically had to be the little soldier that I am and really focus on this new beautiful creature coming out of me."
