It's a boy! I know this because I saw a picture of her nursing him while walking down the street (mama style!) and he was a nice big almost 2 year old it looked like.

I do not know if anyone mentioned Pat Boone's grandchild...no, not Debbie Boone (yawn), but one of her sisters delivered at home.

I know because she was delivered by MY midwife!

My midwife said that Pat Boone was amazed at how awake and calm the newborn baby was after being born at home. He asked if this was normal for homeborn babies, and my midwife said, "Yes."

He had seen Debbie's babies born in the hospital (yawn) so he could make the comparison. Her birth stories were published ad nauseum in LHJ, McCall's, Parents, People, Us, and the like.

Did a search of this thread and didn't get anything about Patricia Arquette. Saw an interview with her not too long ago on The View and Elisabeth Hasselbeck (the young, pregnant one) asked her about her homebirth of her second child. Patricia said she thinks maybe she was a little crazy to choose a homebirth because labor hurt a lot, but that with her first child, she felt like she missed out on something. She said she wanted to experience birth fully and that it was a great experience. I like her.

I would be willing to bet that many celebs would say they homebirth for "privacy" reasons - I mean I guess it would be weird to have your LD nurse at the hospital ask for an autograph and picture or something. Anyway - what I mean is I think a lot of average everyday people would totally understand a celeb wanting homebirth so they can have their privacy - so why then is it crazy to think that an average everyday person might also want some privacy when giving birth. I am just pointing out the inconsistencies that come up between what celebs are "allowed" to do without being thought poorly of when the same action by a regular joe results in immediate shock and disapporval. Case and point - homebirth!

Also as for John Travolta, he and his wife are quoted in Jay Gordon's book on co-sleeping. They are huge advocates of that. I guess it just comes down to the fact that people very often more closely examine their beliefs when they have a child to care for. You really see what is important to a person when you look at how they care for their little ones.

Just my ramblings...

I think that is a really great point

This was the one of the major reasons Cindy Crawford gave for choosing her homebirths.

She said that there are times when you simply do not want to be treated as a celebrity...

And she is, of course, very correct.

Yep! She is very AP.
I heard her mention on a talk show that she doesn't believe in spanking either.

She may be blonde with big boobs, but she isn't no dummy.

Great thread very interesting.

I recently received an issue of American Baby (my mom thinks she must have signed me up for it) and I was appalled at the article on planned c-sections they had. But was more annoying to me was that it listed several celebs who had planned non-medically necessary c-sections: Elizabeth Hurley, Madonna, Kate Hudson, Victoria Beckham and someone else (I want to say Kelly Ripa). I distinctly remember Kate Hudson saying that she had to have a c-section because her baby was soo big (like 8lbs btw) but I guess she really meant she planned a c-section because her baby was so "big." It seems like at the time of the birth we hear people say they had to have a c-section and then gradually over the years the truth of the planned c-section comes out. I really wish they could at least be honest about it.

I love the BFing pics. The Lucy Lawless one was gorgeous and CAM's baby was definitely at least a toddler. Too bad it was labelled not normal but oh well.

Thanks for passing this along, Claudia! I found another article about it here - http://www.eonline.com/News/Items/0,...html?rsslatest

It seems like these days vaginal birth, let alone homebirth, is rare among the Hollywood set. Hopefully other women will follow her example!

WOWSERS! Good for her!! Thank you!

Joely Fisher is the DD of Eddie Fisher and Connie Stevens and half sister of Carrie Fisher.

My DH would hang with Connie Stevens in High School when she was married to one of his classmates and tenants, Maurice Elias aka James Stacy.

Awesome thread! I wish i'd known all these names so i could tell others about it when they look at me like im crazy ha ha. I use to really dislike pam til i became a momma and then i read more about her parenting style and was floored. My hat is off to her for standing her ground for her boys and not letting the hollywood community convince her there are easier ways! Also just a thought i've wondered about, if and when angelina jolie has a baby, i wonder if she would deliver at home as well. She seems pretty hard core (have you seen her tattoos???) And she is another amazing mother!
