James Van Der Beek's wife Kimberly is not only a beautiful woman, loving wife and mother of two.
She's also a blogger!
Most recently she wrote about her two very different birth stories.
Her daughter Olivia was a vaginal birth, in a hospital setting.
For her second birth, her new baby boy Joshua, she decided to go with a home birth!
This was because Joshua was breech!
"Women have been giving birth to breech babies for quite a while, I thought. And while the caesarean has been a godsend in certain circumstances, the idea of getting cut open scared me much more than the idea of trying for something that had been going on since our existence on this planet."
So she found an incredible doctor known for delivering breech babies and now only delivers at a person's home or at a birth center.
After contractions started and got closer and closer she began to push and her baby began his feet first entry into the world.
"At 7:42 a.m. Joshua was born into James’ arms in our bed as the sun was rising. Yes, it was painful. But it was also peaceful and perfect."
She said she was in her home shower only an hour later, then they ate dinner at home that night.
Sounds like a great way to give birth!
It's such a great story we recommend reading the whole thing HERE!
Congrats on the whole beautiful family!
