Duggar Family Welcomes First Grandchild - Babies, Anna Duggar, Joshua Duggar : People.com

The oldest son, Josh and his wife Anna have welcomed their first daughter. She was born at home! I was actually surprised to read that and it made me all happy inside. Hopefully this will help home birth be seen as a not so bad thing anymore since a lot of people follow the Duggars. I can however see negative come from it because they're the Duggars and they do have a do not like following as well.

I'm not really surprised. Michelle Duggar speaks openly about her home births and her belief in natural birthing. I've come to like them a lot more in the past six months or so. Before I thought they were just kind of annoying, but lately I have enjoyed watching the show and have seen a lot of similarities in the way we raise our family (homeschooling, nursing on demand, non-belief in the ethics of birth control etc)

Anyway, I'm glad for them that everything went well! I believe the birth will be aired this week on Tuesday evening.

See, I am a watcher of their show if I catch it. I don't really follow them so I didn't know she had home births. Well, not until a friend of mine told me.

I've grown to like them but I am not a very big watcher of tv.

Nutters, I forgot to record this. Oh, wait, it's on TLC, which means they'll air it 7000 more times

I watched it! It was interesting... it appeared to be a last minute decision because her OB was out of town when she went into labor. I think it was just family and their doula there....

yes, it did seem very last minute, because when the son was on the phone with his dad, he said "I think we're considering a homebirth" when she was already having contractions 5 minutes apart.

My midwife said that's typical though, that a woman will decide where to birth during labor, despite a plan to do otherwise. She even has emergency homebirth kits made up by her door in case this happens. It makes sense, though, that some instinct of where is best will kick in, whether the mother will feel more comfortable at home or in a hospital or a birth center.

We watched it together. As far as I could tell it was Josh, Anna, Michelle, Jill and the doula at the birth. I think that it was awesome that Josh got to deliver his daughter! It really portrayed HB in a positive light I think.

I LOVE the Duggars but don't have cable, so we download the show from iTunes. Unfortunately, that episode isn't out yet- it got skipped from downloading or something? :-( Would have been a great one to see too!

Hi all popping in from the Dec DDC. I watched the episode and was very surprised. Apparently their doctor was out of town so he called their midwife and asked if they can do a home birth. She was truly amazing with the pain, I was surprised.

He delivered the baby and everyone was very calm and collective. Great episode to shine some light on home births.

I just watched this last night. I was under the impression the woman there was a doula, not a midwife. Am I wrong?

Anyway, I thought it looked really calm and peaceful and I enjoyed the episode. I don't know if I could give birth with a sound guy, a cameraman, a producer and my MIL in the room, so I'm pretty darn impressed :-).
