Today I read an announcement on the People Magazine website about the homebirth of Scrubs actor John McGinley's baby.
The article says the baby was born at "1:36 a.m. in a birthing tub at the couple's home in Malibu, with a midwife in attendance."
It then quoted McGinley as saying:
"Nichole was a mountain lion, a warrior in the birthing process. The birth was astonishing!"
I just love his comments. Every new dad should be able to see the mother of his baby like this! Can you imagine a culture of birth in which quotes like this are common and normal instead of surprisingly refreshing? :-)
