No hombirth for Sporty Spice

Charlotte Church, 22, gave birth to her second child, a boy, at home on Sunday. The young mum has spoken out a number of times this year about her positive homebirthing experiences.

There will be no homebirth for former Spice Girl Melanie Chisholm. Due in February, the singer is freaking out thanks to some not so supportive words by fellow bandmate Mel B (Scary Spice). "Mel B has been talking me through all the fine details of giving birth and has told me loads of horror stories," she said. "Well, she is Scary, isn't she? So I suppose it's her job to scare me a bit."

"I want to give birth in hospital, rather than at home, just in case something goes wrong - especially as it's my first," she says.

Having my baby at home is something I've thought about a few times, but I'll be having my first at the hospital. At least, that's what I'm thinking right now... I'm 12 weeks preg. and could change my mind!

*sigh* What I would give to go back in time and have my first at home. Even though it was an easy, natural birth, with successful breastfeeding, the hospital has a nack for completely bastardizing the loveliness of everything. I was in tears quite a few times after birthing my second at home, sharing so many moments with my son that I didn't get to share with my daughter since I had her at the hospital, but I was young and uninformed and didn't know I had another option.
