Finally a real homebirth on TV

Did anyone see the show 18 Kids and Counting the other night? The Duggar’s first grandchild was born at home:-} It was a very calm and relaxed birth – the best example you could ever hope to be shown on TV. There wasn’t an ounce of drama or fear…it was heavenly! Even though I’m not very religious, I really like the Duggar’s, and it seems that most people like them. Perhaps this will entice more parents to consider homebirth.

I was surprised that they allowed the film crew at the birth since it’s Anna’s first child, and they’re VERY conservative, but I’m thrilled that they shared it. I don’t know how she did it, but Anna appeared to be fully clothed while giving birth!
