Celebrities and Everyday Moms Choosing Homebirth, feature on GMA [Video]

Celebrities are among the many new moms choosing to birth at home.

I admit I get a little giddy when I see homebirth in the news. Today Good Morning America featured an awesome video about Hollywood moms like Jennifer Connelly, Gisele Bundchen, and Alyson Hannigan taking part in the growing trend to have their babies at home rather than in the hospital. I’m not star struck, I’m just happy to see positive stories of moms birthing at home get good exposure.



Talk show host Ricki Lake interviewed Pink, Cindy Crawford and Gisele Bundchen for her newest documentary “More Business of Being Born”, a follow up to her first film with Abby Epstein. “The Business of Being Born” is still quite popular for all expecting parents, whether they choose to birth at home or not. I found it to be extremely helpful when planning my own homebirth.

There’s a survey on the GMA website about your views on homebirth. Quite a bit of readers are on board with giving birth at home, but still the majority think hospitals are safest. What about you?
