Following the release of a recent study on home births, the new mom and star of the upcoming Jim Gaffigan Show, 36, is sharing six questions other parents should consider when putting together their own birthing plans.

03/27/2015 at 06:00 PM ET

Jaime King is “pretty far along” into her second pregnancy, but she isn’t slowing down anytime soon thanks to her son, James Knight.

“It’s interesting because since I have a 17-month-old, so much of my energy and time and love is extended to him,” the Hart of Dixie star, 35, told PEOPLE at Just Jared’s Throwback Thursday Party presented by Monster High at Moonlight Rollerway in Glendale, California.

“My first pregnancy was like, ‘Oh, every moment is so sacred,’ and it’s just as sacred [this time], but it’s like, I can’t forget that I have this child that’s discovering new things and saying new words every day,” said King, who recently posed topless in photos she shared on Instagram recently.

In fact, this second time around, King isn’t “worried about every tiny little thing,” she says. “I know what to expect, but yet I’m still enjoying it and it’s still deeply profound.”
