Mum claims to have barely eaten during pregnancy and fed baby on 'cosmic energy'

A mum has caused a lot of chatter online after opening up about her 'breatharian' pregnancy.

The mum claims that she only ate 5 times during her pregnancy and gave her baby nutrition using other means.

"Humans can easily be without food, as long as they are the connected to the energy that exists in all things and through breathing." she said.

"With my first child, I practiced a Breatharian pregnancy. Hunger was a foreign sensation to me so I fully lived on light and ate nothing. My blood tests during all three trimesters were impeccable and I gave birth to a healthy, baby boy."

"I didn't feel the need or desire to eat solid food during the entire nine months and so I only ate five times, all of which were in social situations."

"And I knew my son would be nourished enough by my love and this would allow him to grow healthily in my womb. I went for regular pregnancy check-ups and my doctor confirmed the above average growth of a very healthy baby boy."

People have been quick to criticise the couple online, with many people questioning the authenticity of the couple.
