a little celebrity inspriation

to many in our amercian culture, celebrities represent our modern royalty. as a birth advocate, i am always intrigued how celebrities handle their births, as this deeply affects the consciousness of american women.

molly ringwald recently gave birth for the second time. at the age of 41, she delivered twins vaginally. go molly, go!!!

as time progresses, and our means of birthing becomes more technological driven, the medical system teaches us that a woman can't have twins vaginally and that she certainly can't have a vaginal birth after a ceseran (VBAC). these are myths that birth advocates are seeking to dispel.

for more info on molly's birth, visit the article. and for more positive celebrity birthing check out ricki lake's newest venture, www.mybestbirth.com, a website dedicated to education around birth.
