Might have to do a google search on that one!
Yes, this is true, because when she did the cartoons that said Elly was pg when Micheal and Elizabeth were like, 12 and 10 or so, I wrote her and said "pleeeeze could Elly have a homebirth" and went on to relate our UC in 1989...well, I got a lovely letter back from Lynn, the author/cartoonist and she said, "well, just wait and see what comical turn awaits, and winked. She even drew a picture of Elly on the end of the letter. I still have it, in my hardback copy of "For Better or For Worse", and it is one of my prized possesions. And as you know, Elly had April before John could get home from the office. There was a snowstorm and Connie, the nurse, lived right next door. She came over and helped. So basically Elly had almost a UC!

Of course, why didn't *I* think of that! She had Charles, Andrew and Edward at Buckingham Palace, but Anne was born at Clarence House. (maybe she was a VBAC???) It also helps keep "common" germs away from newborn royals....but I guess Diana wanted to be "safe"...I felt so sorry for her.....

I'm not sure if they had a homebirth, but Noah Wylie (Dr. Carter on ER) and his wife are VERY AP. You can hear an interview by Dr. Gordon here http://www.drjaygordon.com/development/index.asp

Leah Remieny did NOT have a homebirth - she had a drug free hospital birth ala Scientology and did NOT breastfeed even once

Has anyone mentioned Grammy-award-winning Erykah Badu? See the article here

I saw her last birth announcement in the Atlanta paper where it said her baby was born at home, and I thought, "I her "

I have retired from administration work, so if you have a question about anything MDC-related, please contact Cynthia Mosher. Thanks!

Ooops, she was mentioned already. Goes to show I should have re-read Pam's OP

Well, Erykah's cool in my book anyway

LOL, thanks Funny thing is that I have no idea how anyone in the "birth world" who compiles such lists would know about that. Certainly my friends in the birth world think I'm a dork and far from a celebrity wife

I met Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin...and Apple...and few weeks ago. I was completely star-struck when SHE struck up a conversation with ME (as she did with other parents)! Our girls were playing together at our local children's museum - they were in town for a Coldplay show. I wanted so bad to somehow work into the conversation that both my kids were born at home and see if she said anything but, alas, I was just a blabble-butt!

Did anyone notice this in the E! Online article about Joely Fisher's birth?

Quote:
The tyke was delivered at Fisher's Los Angeles abode at 1:30 a.m., tipping the scales at 7 pounds, 12 ounces.
This just struck me as annoying. We're so used to early induced and C/S babies born at 5-6 pounds that 7'12 seems enormous. :

Penny Lancaster (Rod Stewart's fiancee) had a home water birth with her first child (his seventh). Rod got in the pool with her.

I saw this today in the NY Daily News. What do you want to bet she gives birth in the hospital?

TOMKAT AT SEA? As Katie Holmes' springtime due date looms, sources are whispering that she and fiancé Tom Cruise can't agree on where the delivery should take place. According to Star magazine, Holmes wants to give birth in a hospital, but Cruise wants their child born at his Beverly Hills mansion. "He's concerned that at a hospital someone might sneak into Katie's room and take pictures," a source claims. Meanwhile, Scientology adversary Rick Ross says the birth may take place aboard a Scientology-owned cruise ship or at Gold Base, a heavily guarded 500-acre Scientology compound in Hemet, Calif., between L.A. and Palm Springs.

Wasn't Tom Cruise also the one who bought an Ultrasound machine? :
I can understand the desire for privacy, but he's really starting to sound a bit Michael Jackson-esque

Debi Mazar had a homebirth with her first. It looks like it didn't go well, so it's unclear if she had one with her second.

thats where I live, that place scares me to even drive by. i would not want to have my baby there! some 21 year old girl died in the basement part of that place by being electricuted on accident. It doesnt sound all that homey or even safe for that matter. Granted I am sure good ole Tom could get the best accomadations but still.....oh and in case of transfer, the hospital here SUCKS.

i read that angelina wants a natural birth but i dont know about homebirth.

I doubt Tom's reasoning has anything to do with a natural, home environment for the birth. I recently read something written by a former Scientologist about their birth methods, which sound freaky to me. They separate mom from the baby for the first day of life and allow only very limited contact for the first several days. The baby is left alone in a crib for most of the first day and isn't touch unless absolutely necessary. This is called, "Processing the New Mother" or something like that. Too weird for me! This method seems incompatible with breastfeeding and I wonder about that part of it. It seems totally unnatural at a time when moms and babies should have constant contact for them to be separated!

I think there's a lot of misinformation (or no longer practiced information) about scientology. FI, I am pretty sure T/K aren't planning to do that separation stuff, and DO plan to breastfeed.
