Congratulations to this couple on the healthy home birth of their daughter!

How very interesting that thousands of women safely give birth at home every day -- without firefighters and paramedics!!-- and yet this story made headlines.

I wonder what happens in a home birth in an emergency situation. My friends son had the cord wrapped around his neck twice when they decided to do an emergency c-section since his heart rate was dropping drastically.

I know Alice and Rafael. I used to work with Alice's sister. Congrats to this family. They are good people.
