Women are choosing home birth over checking into the hospital more and more these days and a lot of celebrity mams are hopping on the bandwagon.
Recent celeb mamas include Stacy Keibler and James Van Der Beek’s wife Kimberly. Home birth is a growing choice for many women that find the experience more attractive. For one, they are able to be in the comfort of their own home and secondly are able to have a quiet and peaceful birthing experience away from the sterile atmosphere of a hospital.
Here are some celeb mamas that you may not have known delivered their babies in their very own home.
The singer welcomed both of her children at home with her husband by her side. Morisette said after she gave birth to her son Ever in 2011, “I didn’t really even imagine myself having the birth experience at the hospital. My home is like my little sanctuary,” she told Today in 2013. The 44-year-old musician welcomed her daughter Onyx in 2017 the same way, from the comfort of her home.
The How I Met Your Mother alum went the homebirth route when she delivered her two daughters Satyana and Keeva. The 44-year-old actress told Woman’s Day in 2009, “I’ve never liked hospitals. I wanted to be comfortable as possible when I gave birth, and there’s no place I’m more comfortable than my own home. I wanted a comforting and positive environment. In my opinion, hospitals are for sick people.”
The supermodel got in touch with her inner superpowers when she delivered her firstborn Benjamin. Gisele, 37, gave birth in her and husband Tom Brady’s hot tub in their Boston penthouse in 2009. Bundchen revealed to Brazil’s Globo TV in 2010 of the experience, “I did yoga and meditation, so I managed to have a very tranquil birth at home. I didn’t hurt in the slightest. The whole time my mind was focused in each contraction on the thought ‘My baby is closer to coming out.’”
The Baywatch beauty gave birth to her son Brandon in 1996 and Dylan in 1997 from home. The 50-year-old Playmate told Larry King in an interview in 2002, “I gave birth at home both times, natural, and with a midwife, in water, with nothing. Not even Tylenol.”
