Home births increased 20 percent over four years, according to new government statistics. Less than one percent of women give birth at home, but clearly there's a trend toward natural births at home -- even though doctors' groups warn against it. Former "Blossom" star and "Big Bang Theory" actress Mayim Bialik has given birth at home, loved it, and thinks people need to know more about it.

I thought this was a great article that was well-written.  Are you fan of Mayim Bialik?

Yes I am, both the woman who advocates non-fear based birthing choices and the character "Amy Farrah-Fowler" on Big Bang Theory.  I'm hoping there is a sequence when Amy Farrah-Fowler decides to be a surrogate mother for someone as some sort of scientific experiment and she home births in Penny's apartment because Penny is her "besty".
