Jennifer Connelly gave birth to a baby girl at home.

1. Alyson Hannigan

Hannigan has become a very popular celebrity mom with the birth of her daughter, Satyana, in March 2009. She says, “Yes. I did use a midwife and a doula. We had the option of having a doctor there, but even he said you’ll only need me if you need to be transferred to the hospital–which thankfully, I did not need.”

2. Pamela Anderson

Baywatch babe, Pamela Anderson, gave birth to both of her sons, Brandon, 15, and Dylan, 13, at home. She says, “I gave birth at home both times–natural–with a midwife, in water…with nothing. Not even Tylenol.”

3. Demi Moore

Moore reportedly had all three of her children at home.

4. Meryl Streep

5. Ricki Lake

Ricki Lake made a documentary about home birth, The Business of Being Born, and it inspired mothers to have home births. She gave birth to her son, Owen, 10, at home in a bathtub.

    I think women that give birth naturaly is amazing and it takes a lot of strenght and tolerance for pain to give birth naturally. All the kuddos to Ricky Lake and Jennifer and her new baby. I myself have two kids and both were csections and in the end is that they were both healthy babeis.

  2. Sonya says:

    I had my son at home with no meds. It was the most beautiful thing I have ever experienced. It was late October and chilly so we had a fire going in our fireplace and in my early labor I was able to make a big pot of soup for the midwife team. It wasn’t easy, it required an amazing amount of patience and trust in my body but it was beyond everything I imagined birth could be. During the pushing phase, I was just so focused and was in a near meditation state concentrating all of my energy to the baby asking for his help. After 13 hours of active labor (and no tearing I might add), I had a perfect baby boy and we all snuggled up. It was birth bliss.
