Scrubs Homebirth

5 February 2008

This is one of our favorite shows — Tim and I buy the seasons on DVD and used to watch them in the evenings when we needed unwind time. I was so happy to see this article, forwarded on one of my e-mail listservs.

John C. McGinley, Wife Welcome a Baby

Scrubs star John C. McGinley and his wife Nichole welcomed a daughter, Billie Grace, on Saturday, the actor tells PEOPLE exclusively.

The baby weighs 8 lbs. and is 21 inches long. She was delivered at 1:36 a.m. in a birthing tub at the couple’s home in Malibu, with a midwife in attendance.

“Nichole was a mountain lion, a warrior in the birthing process,” McGinley tells PEOPLE. “The birth was astonishing! Mom and baby girl are 100 percent. Billie is a ‘mini Nichole’! Thank God.”

New mom Nichole, an Ashtanga yoga teacher and birthing doula, adds, “We are all happy and healthy at home and enjoying these precious first moments of life together.”

The couple married on April 7, 2007. Billie is their first child together. McGinley also has a 10-year-old son Max.

In other news, I’m trying to refrain from writing a whiny, sleep-deprived blog right now so I’m going to go take a nap and then update this afternoon when I’m in a better mood. Growth spurts suck.

    Growth spurts do, but one day you’ll look fondly back at when sucking satisfied them and they didn’t require massive load-ups at the supermarket! The best is yet to come! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think yesterday I would have gladly traded many massive load-ups at the supermarket for a night of sleep! I managed to recover today to the point that I will be able to operate a motor vehicle without seeing things on the side of the road that aren’t there. Woohoo!

    I love Scrubs!!
    I just wanted to make myself available as a resource to those considering homebirth. Iโ€™m the oldest of five kids – all born at home. My husband and I tried to have a natural birth in the hospital with a doula for our first son in July of โ€˜05 and it ended in an unnecessary cesarean section. Our midwife and doula attended HBAC in March of โ€˜07 was a healing experience for everyone. I have both birth stories in word docs if anyone is interested.
