What's it like having a home birth? Three families share their stories with us:

Top chef Ted Corrado & Joanne Capuano

Olympians Carrie & Attila Buday


We asked our Facebook followers how having a home birth in December added to the magic and wonder of the experience and they generously shared their joyous and heartwarming experiences with us. It became a three-part series about holiday home births. Want to share your birth story? Let us know!

Part I: Sarah Redfearn's story
