Mayim Bialik delivered her second son, Frederick, at home with a doula, her husband, and her older son, Miles, by her side. Of the home birth, Mayim said, "Three pushes later, Frederick slithered out, and Miles was carried out of his high chair to cut the cord. A small spurt of blood startled him, and he promptly asked my husband to finish the job . . . Miles then sat down on the floor and, minutes later, was handed a bundled-up, wide-eyed baby brother. He clung to that baby for enough minutes that the midwife had to separate them."
