Barrymore's 'baby yoga'

Drew Barrymore is said to be taking part in yoga and going on "long walks" during her pregnancy.

The 39-year-old actress is due to give birth to her second child, a baby girl, with her husband Will Kopelman any day now. The couple married in June 2012 and already have 17-month-old daughter Olive together.

As she expects a new addition to the family, Drew is said to be keeping active with an aide by her side.

"Drew's been feeling physically uncomfortable lately, but she's feeling more upbeat thanks to the doula," a source told British magazine Closer.

"They take yoga sessions together, head out on long walks and they have frozen yoghurt in the afternoons. [The doula is] there to make sure that Drew's birth will be a really happy event. She wants a natural birth with no painkillers."

A doula provides emotional and spiritual support for women before, during and after they give birth. Drew is reportedly grateful for the help and is now feeling a lot more content while with child.

"Drew loves being pregnant but, with her emotions all over the place, it's lovely to have the doula taking care of her needs," the insider added. "The doula is with her for two hours a day and will be there at the birth."

Luckily Drew has other things to keep her busy, such as her role as celebrity editor-at-large of Refinery29.

One of her posts on the popular website was about her favourite breakfast and she admitted becoming a mother made her more interested in cooking

"Cut to me, baby on the way, and pleading with myself, 'You just can’t make excuses to your kids that you can't cook.' And so, I became determined to learn," she wrote.

"Start with the basics and work from there. This was almost two years ago. And, truthfully, I am still only great at one-dish, one-course, one-pot meals. I love soups and pastas, slow-cooked pork tacos, and meatloaf. I am still intimidated in the kitchen, and, sadly, I am still not sexy in there, either."
