I'm not really a fan of this show or the Duggar family, however I did catch their Father's Day episode today.
It was about the first grandson being born. Not only was he born at home(on the toilet), but they mentioned that with their first kid they had planned a hospital birth. However their doctor went on vacation so they had an unplanned homebirth!
I found it to be a very positive portrayal of homebirth. They also participated in Bradley classes and initially set up a tub for a waterbirth.

Yes, we watched yesterday too. I thought it did a great job showing home birth and I loved that she was surrounded with so much love and support during her birth.

Don't watch it, but I heard about that episode. I heard some Doulas were annoyed by it though.

Annoyed really. Any idea why?
I found it quite nice especially considering the mom's strict religious beliefs and that there was a TV camera in her face...and her husband left to take a nap.
