The Midwife As A Status Symbol
- 0Jun 15, '12 by DoGoodThenGoBESIDES being impossibly gorgeous mothers, what else do Christy Turlington, Karolina Kurkova and Gisele BŁndchen have in common?
Each could probably afford to buy her own private wing at a hospital, but instead of going to a top-notch obstetrician, all chose a midwife to deliver their babies..

- 0Jun 17, '12 by KimberlyRN89, BSN, RNI think it may be more of a "trendy" thing for celebs to wanna have home births. I remember a few years ago, singer Erykah Badu delivered her third child at home (idk if she had a midwife, but i'm guessing she did). She tweeted throughout the labor. And also I remember watching "Tia & Tamera" on Style network last yr & Tia was interviewing midwives & doulas b/c she wanted to deliver at home. Ultimately she chose to deliver at a hospital & had to have a C-section.
