Last night TLC aired the new 18 kids and counting episode. The dugger's new daughter -in -law Anna had her baby on the show. She decided at the last minute to have a home birth with a doula. They filmed her whole birth and it brought me to tears. I just thought it was wonderful to see a home birth on a very popular TLC show. For me it was encouraging to see theis young woman supporting home birth and going through with it. I would like to have a home birth with my baby but a lot of people arn't being very supportive. Anytime I mention it, it seems someone had something negative to say. Can people be so ignorant? I will end up doing what I think is right. Seeing a popular TV figure have a homebirth was encouraging and I am hoping it becomes a more accpeted and mainstream choice.
